Cranberry Brownies!

Fittingly, I want to show you my favorite brownie recipe first! I absolutely love this one. Its decadent, but not overly sweet/rich- a balance of tart and sweet with fresh cranberries and dark chocolate. I would have never thought that ‘from scratch’ brownies could be so easy, or so good! Check out the photos, the recipe is below!

melting butter, adding cocoa

Cranberry Brownies

  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup baker’s cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts/almonds (opt)
  1. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in cocoa. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, and almond extract and stir until well blended.
  3. Stir chocolate/butter mixture into dry ingredients. Add cranberries and nuts and mix until just blended.
  4. Pour batter into a greased 9×13″ pan. Bake at 350* for 30-35min. Cool completely. Cut with plastic knife.

If you try it out, I’d love to know what you think!
