Let’s get baking!

Yield one 8×8 square pan


For the brownies

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cocoa powder ( I used dark cocoa powder )

1/2 cup unsalted butter

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup white granulated sugar

1 and 1/4 cups walnuts, chopped


For the brownie

1.- Preheat oven to 350 F. Line your baking pan (8×8) with parchment paper (bottom and sides). If you don’t have parchment paper, don’t worry, just make sure the bottom and sides of your pan are pretty well greased with butter or cooking spray. Set your pan aside.

2.- In a medium size saucepan, melt butter. Add sugar and mix for 2 minutes. Then, let the mixture cool for 5 minutes. Add eggs and mix really well so we prevent our eggs from cooking. Add vanilla. Mix.

3.- Add cocoa powder, mix. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until you don’t see any leftover flour. Add 1 cup of chopped walnuts. Mix

4.- Pour brownie batter into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup chopped walnuts on top.

5.- Bake for 25-30 minutes.

6.- Cool and cut into squares. I got 16 small squares.
