Best Brownie Recipes To Get Your Bake On

Baking brownies is something of an occupational therapy for me. I love that it combines both art and science, with my best brownie recipes calibrated as much with creativity as with steadfast precision.

I learn something new with each batch. Melting the butter with the chocolate and beating in the sugar and eggs manifests in brownies distinctly different from those baked by first vigorously beating the eggs and sugar (until they’ve almost tripled in volume) and then folding in the melted chocolate and butter. Both are equally delicious, but also deliciously different.

Of course, the best thing about brownies is that they speak the language you need depending on your mood, the occasion or the need of the hour. Their devilish decadence is a treat you ought not to miss at any celebration big or small; while the craveable chocolatey-ness is perfect when you need some edible comfort.

Everyone needs a go-to homemade brownie. Here are my best brownie recipes featuring everything from triple chocolate mudslide brownies to brownies swirled with salted caramel. Yes, there are eggless recipes in the mix (including Nutella brownies!) and vegan brownies too for a virtuous treat packed with plant-based ingredients. Happy baking!

Triple Chocolate Mudslide Brownies
Using melted chocolate, pure cocoa powder and chocolate chips are all smart moves that add up to seriously chocolatey brownies. Thick and chunky, they’re as rich as you could wish for and brandished with a craveably-crinkled crust too!
