Hi everyone!

This past weekend was World Baking Day! I am a little late but there is never a bad time to bake right?

World Baking Day is the third Sunday in May each year. Everyone is encouraged to bake — for themselves and their families and their friends. It has been observed since 2012.

You can still bake something for friends and family. Like this one!

1 8 X 8 pan


Brownie Ingredients

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 c. unsalted butter
  • 2 c. granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 t. real vanilla extract
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. ground cocoa powder sweetened
  • ¼ t. salt
  • 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 c. chopped walnuts

Frosting Ingredients

  • ½ c. unsalted butter
  • 1/3 c. cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1-1½ c. powdered sugar
  • 2-3 T. whole milk


  • Place the top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, and salt to a large bowl and stir to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until just combined. (Do not over mix or the brownies will turn out “cakey”).
  • Stir the chocolate chips and walnuts into the batter and transfer to the prepared baking pan. Spread into an even layer and transfer to the preheated oven.
  • Bake for 22-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Brownies will still be soft and will finish setting while they cool.
  • To prepare the frosting, mix the butter with the cocoa powder and 1 cup powdered sugar. Add in one tablespoon of milk at a time until desired consistency is reached. If necessary, add the remaining ½ cup powdered sugar to thicken.
  • Once cool, spread frosting on top of the brownies before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
