Brownies are always a good idea and this recipe for one bowl brownie recipe in 9×13 pan does not disappoint. They are just perfect and so amazing. Lots of chocolate make the brownies so chewy and delicious. I love making brownies and peanut butter fans will also like Reese’s Pieces Brownies.

They have the perfect mixture of chocolate and the chocolate chips in the mixture really take this recipe up a level. I like my brownies soft and fudgy and this recipe is simply the best!

Why we love this recipe

This recipe for homemade brownies is so easy and costs very little to make. And it tastes better than a boxed brownie mix. It is not hard at all to make homemade fudgy brownies. You can easily make these from scratch with just a few pantry ingredients. 

This Easy Brownies 9×13 recipe is a family favorite. All the Ingredients are mixed in one bowl and then poured in a 9×13 pan. The ingredients are simple pantry ingredients. It is the best brownie recipe.

  • These brownies are chewy, Delicious and Easy to make.
  • The brownies are full of Fudgy, Chocolate flavor.
  • The tops are Crackly, Shiny and perfect with a scoop of Ice Cream.

One Bowl Brownie Ingredients

Ingredients for recipe - sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour, salt, baking powder, eggs, melted butter.
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – Try dutch-process cocoa powder. I like Hershey.
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Salt
  • baking powder
  • Large Eggs
  • Melted Butter

The entire ingredient list is at the bottom of the post.


  • Try using Dark Chocolate Chips in the batter instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • You can swirl peanut butter in the batter or try using peanut butter morsels. 
  • Try White Chocolate Chips in the batter.
  • Top the brownies with chocolate frosting or this delicious Vanilla Buttercream frosting.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of the brownies. This looks so pretty.
  • Add nuts to this brownie recipe. I like to get a bag of these dry walnuts or you can use peanuts, pecans or whatever you prefer.

How to Make One Bowl Brownies

Expert Tips

  • Use a Good Pan – Make sure you have a good pan to make the homemade brownie recipe in. We used a 9×13 pan and they turned out great.
  • Line baking pan with parchment paper – I also like to use parchment paper when I bake. It helps make clean up easy.
  • Use a Wire Rack – If you don’t have a wire rack, they are so handy to help cool the brownies completely if you plan to take them out and then cut them. I would definitely pick up a set if you don’t have any. They will get used a lot if you bake.
  • Combine Ingredients – When mixing the ingredients together, don’t over mix the brownie batter.
  • Don’t over bake – Be careful to not over bake the brownies. This will make them lose their delicious fudgy consistency.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add nuts?

Yes, you can stir in nuts in the brownie mixture. If there is someone that doesn’t like nuts in their brownies, you can always top one side of the brownies with nuts. This way everyone is happy.

Here are some of our suggestions:

Should I use a Metal or Glass Pan?

You can use either a metal pan or glass pan. Most people like baking in a metal pan because the brownie edges get a crispy edge. My kids like the middle part of the brownie, but I prefer to have that crispy edge.

If you prefer to you a glass plan, you might need to bake it a few minutes longer.

Can I use a Smaller Pan?

Yes, if you want a thicker brownie you can use a smaller pan. Try using a 7×11 inch pan or a 8×12 inch pan. Just remember you will need to cook the brownie a little longer.
