Hocus Pocus Brownies

Fudge Brownies

Recipe Source Cafe Delites


*8″ x 8″ square baking pan

*Parchment Paper

*4 Metal Baking Clips, optional see picture below

*Cooking Spray



*1/2 cup Butter, melted

*1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil

*1 and 1/8 cups Superfine Sugar (can sub granulated sugar)

*2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

*2 Eggs

*1/2 cup All-purpose Flour

*1/2 cup Cocoa Powder

*1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt


Wet Ingredients:

Combine in a mixing bowl whisk together the melted butter, olive oil, sugar and vanilla extract.  Then add 1 egg at a time beating with a hand mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Dry Ingredients

Sift into a medium bowl the flour, cocoa powder and sea salt. Slowly add to the wet ingredients, stirring in 1/3 of the dry ingredients at a time just until completely combined. Mixing to much after adding the dry ingredients will make them cake like and this is a “fudgy” brownie recipe.

In a 8 inch square baking pan, add a cut piece of parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Pour mixed brownie batter into lined parchment lined pan.

Bake In a pre-heated 350*F. oven, placing the oven rack at the top of the oven for slower cooking to make the fudge type brownies, mine took 28 minutes to cook but check on them after baking 22 minutes. They will be gooey when checked with a tooth pick. If you over bake the brownies they you will lose the “fudgy” type brownie texture. When baked remove pan of brownies from the oven and allow to cool completely in pan.

After cooling, remove/lift brownies from pan and cut into 9 brownies.
