So basically, I am just passing along this recipe for Homemade Fudge Brownies from a recipe I found on The Kitchn! I only changed up a few things. Instead of baking in a 9×9 inch pan, I used a 10.25″ cast iron pan from Lodge. Click here! Oh…and I also added chopped walnuts. When I tell you, this is the best homemade fudge brownie recipe ever…it is the BEST. You will never buy a box mix fudge brownie mix again. The best part…you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry. It does require a number of steps that you need to follow exactly…but you got this!

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare your pan or cast iron skillet by spraying bottom and sides with cooking spray. Add a touch of flour and coat the spray. Shake off any excess. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. I just laid the skillet on top of parchment then traced a line with scissors and cut out the circle.

Adjust the temperature of your microwave to low. Pour the oil into a microwave-safe bowl. Place in microwave and heat in five-second intervals. Four to six intervals should do. You just want the oil to warm up…not hot. Remove bowl from microwave and whisk in the cocoa powder. Set aside as you prepare the other ingredients.

In a smaller bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl (if you are using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, that bowl is perfect), combine the eggs, powdered sugar and brown sugar. Beat on medium for about three minutes. You are looking for a fluffy texture and light color. Beat in the vanilla.

Add in one-half of the cocoa/oil mixture and beat on medium-high for about five minutes. You will notice the batter take on a sheen. Add in the flour mixture and beat on low until combined. Add in the remaining cocoa/oil mixture. Beat for another minute. Gently fold in the walnuts.

Pour batter into prepared skillet/pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Longer, if you want a more crispy-edged brownie. Do not test the middle with a toothpick…these are fudgy and the toothpick will not come out clean.

Allow to cool before cutting (if you can). There you have it…the best Homemade Fudge Brownies! Serve with homemade whipped topping or ice cream. ENJOY!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
