Cocoa Cake Brownies

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


about 2-1/2 dozen

These fudgy brownies are delicious. People say that the moist treats have a texture somewhere between chewy and cake-like brownies. We like to break them into pieces and create a trifle with chocolate pudding, toffee chips and whipped topping.—Helen Turner, Upland, Indiana

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 7 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture just until moistened.
  2. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.

    My husband asked me to make cakey brownies for his birthday. After much searching, found this recipe. Only made two changes - increase the cocoa to 2/3 cup and added 1 1/2 cups of mini chocolate chips. After all, if some chocolate is good then a lot more is even better!

    I thought these brownies were very dry as well. If not for the ice cream and fugde sauce we put on them, i would have ditched them in the trash.

    These were really dry, we were quite disappointed in them.
