Super Fudgy Brownies


These brownies are SO fudgy. SO cakey. SO rich. SO perfect.

In fact, I ran into a problem while tasting them. On the one hand, they are so delicious that you don’t want to stop eating them. Ever. On the other hand, they are so rich that you can only eat a little at a time.

The solution? Enjoying several little brownies throughout the day? Or having just one after dinner, savoring every bite? You decide.


Super Fudgy Brownies

Yield: 12 brownies


  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour (or whole-wheat flour)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9x9" baking pan.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate, butter and olive oil together, stirring until smooth.
  3. Whisk in the sugars, then add the flour, eggs, vanilla and salt. Stir until well blended.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Using a rubber spatula, smooth the top of the brownies, then sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the edges begin to pull away from the pan.
  5. Note: You can stir in the chocolate chips instead of sprinkling them on top. They are only on top here because they were a last-minute addition to the recipe. A fantastic, fantastic addition.
  6. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting into squares.



So what do you think? Several little brownies throughout the day? Or just one after dinner?

For the record, I choose savoring one brownie after dinner.

    those look amazing. I have never made brownies from scratch before but those make me want to do it ASAP..if only I had someplace to bring them to or someone to give them away to..otherwise I would eat the whole pan myself! haha.

    I know this is a little older post but I HAD to write this. I have finally found the PERFECT brownie recipe and it is all thanks to you!! After trying numerous recipes, the brownies I made either turned out too cake like or…just dry. This recipe was amazing and it uses less than half the butter and fat that most other fudgy brownie recipes call for- I really think the brown sugar is the secret, along with the combination of the other ing. I have to say though that I did use one less egg, just because I really like my brownies chewy and fudgy. Thank you so much Julie- my brownie recipe search is over!! :):)

      Bella, your comment just made my day, if not my week. This may be one of the sweetest comments I’ve ever received on one of my recipes. I’m so glad you love the brownies! Thank you!
