One Pot Brownies
Filed Under: Baked Goods


This is the perfect dessert for when you need something quick but want it to be homemade. You can make these brownies almost as fast as you can make them out of a box, but these are soo much better!

This recipe is put together on the stove top and, as the title states, you simply throw all the ingredients into one pot. Pour the batter into a pan, pop it in the oven for 30 minutes, and just like that you have the perfect start to a brownie sundae :) For extra fudgy brownies omit 1 egg.

I whipped this batch up while my husband was taking a nap. He’s the cook in our family and he’s making lentil soup for our dinner tonight. I thought I’d surprise him by adding some dessert. Ok, ok, I just wanted dessert tonight! Enjoy.
