Brownies. Are you a fudgy brownies fan or a cakey brownies fan? What if I told you it’s possible to have both?
No need to choose with these decadent, family size Fudgy and Cakey Brownies. They are absolutely delicious and decadent.
And my guys love them.

And harmony is always good in a family. Especially with chocolate.

- Category: Dessert
- Method: Bake
1 cup butter, melted
1-1/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
1/2 cup water
1-1/2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips, divided
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9″ x 13″ baking pan or line with parchment paper for easy removal.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the cocoa, and sugar, stirring until smooth and the chocolate is shiny. Add eggs, salt, baking powder, vanilla, espresso powder, if using, and 1/2 cup water. Mix until light and creamy.
Add the flour and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and continue to stir until smooth. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips over the batter.
Bake for 30 to 32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs. Cool completely before cutting.
These brownies freeze really well. I usually cut them into serving size pieces and wrap each individually with plastic wrap and freeze in a freezer bag. Perfect for lunches!
