Cakey on the outside and fudgy in the middle, this easy recipe really is the best!
FOOD FACT: The first brownie ever made was actually a mistake. The baker didn’t have any baking powder and the final product ended up being a fudgy treat. The original ingredients were only butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs, and flour.
