Some days I am just plain lazy in the kitchen.  One bowl, one pan, and 5 minutes to get it in the oven is about all I have.  In comes the Lazy Day Brownie.  Perfectly chocolaty and it comes together in 5 minutes.


I love this recipe as a base for yummy trifles and really enjoy souping these brownies up to make several varieties of outrageous brownies. These are certainly the most requested recipe in our house.  I cut this recipe into tiny brownie bites and stick them in the freezer.  They are the perfect cure for that chocolate craving when ever you have one! Also awesome for stirring into vanilla ice cream.

    1. True, there are no nuts in these recipes. If you want brownies with nuts try these: http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2012/11/simple-double-chocolate-pecan-brownies.html

    1. I measure first and then pour the measuring cup into a sifter (if necessary) and sift right into the bowl. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  12. Why do you have a separate recipe for brownies WITH nuts? can't you just add nuts to this recipe.??? or is there a specific REASON you have NOT? thanks for the reply

  13. I subsitituted the butter gor vegetable oil as it tends to be softer, delicious!

  14. Just made .. and these are good, quick and easy! I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and then sprinkled 1 tbs of mini choc chips on top. After trying paleo, vegan, low cal brownies .. these were a welcome change - and the only recipe that I didn't toss!!

  16. I normally always forget to comment about a recipe, or to let people know how their recipes worked, but OH MY GOD! These brownies are so fast to whip up, and you don't have to worry about beating it to keep it fluffy because you want them as dense as possible. Absolutely LOVED this recipe, and these brownies were a hit at my party yesterday! =) Thank you so much!
