I’ve tested many one-bowl brownies and none came near to topping this one. Not even by a close margin. This is moist, fluffy, super simple and delicious. It works great for cupcakes too. And great if you’re short on eggs, as it only uses two.

Ingredients

Brownie in a Bag

  • 2 cups Glicks Flour

  • 3/4 cup Gefen Cocoa

  • 1 and 3/4 cups sugar

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon coffee diluted in 1 cup water

  • an additional 1 cup of water

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • 1 teaspoon Gefen Vanilla Extract (do not skip this; it gives an amazing taste!)

Directions

1.

Mix flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt directly in the baking pan with a fork. For cupcakes, you can shake these ingredients together in a two-gallon ziptop bag.

2.

Add coffee, eggs, oil, and vanilla (in your bag or pan) and mix.

3.

For cupcakes, snip the corner of the bag and divvy into muffin holders.

4.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.

Tips:

ADD SOME KICK! Mix the options below into your tried-and-true cupcake batters for a flavor boost. CHOCOLATE CHIPS – recommended for brownies; NOUGAT CHIPS – recommended for brownies; CRAISINS – recommended for mocha; OATS – recommended for mocha. SWITCH IT UP! My super talented friend Cyporee Knopfler once inspired this piece of genius: Spice up old favorite cake recipes by swapping an interesting flavor when a recipe calls for vanilla extract. This simple change will make a huge difference! Here are some ideas: Rum extract; Strawberry extract; Coconut extract; Banana liqueur; Pistachio extract; Caramel extract or liqueur; Raspberry extract or liqueur; Orange, lemon, and/ or grapefruit zest for a citrus cake; Or throw in a packet of flavored Jello into any vanilla cake.

This was moist and yummy but not brownies. It should be called chocolate cake in a bag.
