One bowl, 5 minutes prep, and 8 ingredients are all you need to make these super quick, easy, and delicious small-batch brownies with crunchy edges and fudgy centers.
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly grease and line your loaf pan with parchment paper (if you don't care about lifting the brownies out of the pan, you can skip the paper).
In a medium bowl, combine slightly cooled melted butter and granulated sugar and whisk until well combined. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
Add flour, sifted cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth it out so it covers most of the bottom. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs. For fudgier brownies, bake for 19-20 minutes and pull them.
Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
