  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9 X 11 inch baking dish with parchment.
  • Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the 1/2 cup vegetable oil, syrups, coffee, soy milk and vanilla. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, being carful not to overbeat.
  • Pour half the batter into the baking dish. Sprinkle with half the chocolate chips. Pour the rest of the batter into the baking dish, and sprinkle with the rest of the chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 30 minutes (less if your pan is shallow, more if your pan is deep), or until a toothpick has just a bit of chocolate on it when you test the cake. Cool.



A brownie should be slightly underdone when baked. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out with flecks of chocolate. If you bake your brownies for more than 35 minutes, you risk the cake becoming too dry and crumbly. However, you can bake them for a bit longer if you want to keep them longer. You can also store them in the freezer for up to three months if they don't get eaten within the first few days.

Alternative Method: Fudgy Chocolate Brownies in a Microwave

Fudgy Chocolate Brownie
Perfectly portioned for your sweet cravings

To swiftly prepare decadent microwave brownies, start by selecting a microwave-safe dish and greasing it lightly. Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds, ensuring it doesn’t boil. Combine melted butter with sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract, then gradually add a mixture of sifted cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread the batter in the dish and microwave for 4-6 minutes, checking with a toothpick for doneness. Allow the brownies to cool before cutting into squares. Serve warm or at room temperature to relish the gooey, fudgy goodness of this quick and delightful dessert.

Cooking Tips: Get Perfectly Fudgy Brownies Every Time

First and foremost, the choice of a microwave-safe dish plays a crucial role. Opt for one that not only fits your recipe but also adds a touch of warmth to the baking process. There’s something about the right dish that elevates the entire experience, making it feel more like a comforting ritual than a simple cooking task.

When it comes to melting the butter, a gentle touch is key. Microwaving it for just the right amount of time—around 30 seconds—ensures that it transforms into a silky, golden liquid without losing its essence. This step, in my opinion, sets the foundation for the rich and indulgent flavor that defines a perfect fudgy brownie.

Mixing the batter is where the magic happens. Whisking together sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract creates a symphony of flavors. The smooth, velvety texture that ensues is nothing short of a culinary masterpiece in the making. It’s here that you realize baking is not just a process; it’s an intimate connection with the ingredients and the anticipation of something wonderful.

Incorporating the dry ingredients requires a gentle hand and a bit of patience. Sifting cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder together ensures an even distribution, preventing any unwelcome lumps. This meticulous step ensures that each bite of your brownie is a harmonious blend of chocolatey goodness.

As you watch the brownie batter transform in the microwave, there’s a sense of childlike wonder that accompanies the process. The kitchen fills with the irresistible scent of chocolate, and you can almost taste the anticipation in the air.

Microwaving time is a critical juncture. It’s a dance between patience and eagerness. Starting with 4 minutes and checking for doneness with a toothpick creates a suspenseful moment. Those few moist crumbs on the toothpick signal that your brownies are ready, and the satisfaction that follows is akin to unlocking a sweet treasure.

Finally, allowing the brownies to cool is a test of patience—one that I often struggle with. Yet, the wait is rewarded as the warm, gooey squares emerge, ready to be savored. Whether enjoyed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a simple dusting of powdered sugar, these fudgy chocolate brownies, created with a sprinkle of patience and a dash of passion, are a testament to the joy found in the art of baking.

Serving Suggestions: Elevate Your Brownie Experience

Add a burst of fruity goodness.

Imagine indulging in a plateful of irresistibly fudgy chocolate brownies, each bite a celebration of rich cocoa goodness. Now, elevate that experience with thoughtfully paired accompaniments that bring a symphony of flavors to your dessert table. Picture the comforting warmth of miso soup, its savory notes beautifully contrasting the sweetness of the brownies. Alternatively, opt for a refreshing twist with a side of delicate sashimi, the clean flavors cutting through the decadent richness. For those seeking a savory touch, yakisoba provides an umami-packed companion, creating a delightful contrast in both texture and taste. Drizzle some tangy ponzu sauce or serve alongside a plate of Dragon Rolls for a zesty kick and a fusion of flavors. Consider incorporating coconut milk for a tropical flair, hazelnut milk for a nutty richness, or delve into the classic combination of apple crumble to complement the chocolatey delight. Whichever pairing you choose, the key lies in experimenting and savoring the unique harmony of flavors that each combination brings to your dessert experience.

FAQs: Your Burning Brownie Questions Answered

The secret behind irresistible brownies
  • How do I store leftover brownies? Place them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for a week. For longer storage, freeze them in a zip-top bag, separating layers with parchment paper.
  • Can I make brownies without eggs? Yes! Substitute each egg with a flax or chia egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons water). It works like a charm.
  • Why are my brownies too cakey? You might be using too much leavening agent (baking powder/soda) or overmixing the batter. Reducing these factors should result in fudgier brownies.
  • Can I make brownies gluten-free? Absolutely. Use a gluten-free flour blend in place of regular flour. You won’t even notice the difference.
  • What’s the secret to a shiny, crackly top? It’s all about whisking the sugar vigorously with the eggs until the mixture becomes glossy before adding other ingredients. This creates that coveted shiny crust.
