These brownies are decadent and sweet and dangerously simple to make. I’m usually a little apprehensive when it comes to baking, with all the precise measurements and accurate baking times, but I have made these twice in the last week (one batch is for a friend, I promise!) and both times they came out perfect.
Double Chocolate Brownies with Pecans
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup pecans (chopped)
- ½ semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 °F. Prepare a 8″ x 13″ baking pan.
In a medium bowl, add oil, sugar and eggs. Beat to combine. In another bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring to combine until all ingredients are incorporated. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
Place in oven for about 13 minutes or until brownies are starting to set, but are still uncooked. Remove from oven and quickly sprinkle chopped pecans and chocolate chips on top. Press toppings lightly into batter with a spoon.
Return to oven for about 8 additional minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting.
