3-Ingredient Brownie Baking Activity

This delicious brownie recipe is a sure win! It's three simple ingredients and two easy steps. We recommend enjoying these with a scoop of ice cream for dessert tonight!

BROWNIE FUN FACT: The first brownie ever made, like other culinary mishaps (the sandwich, pizza, potato chip) was actually a mistake. The baker didn’t have baking powder and ended up with an unleavened fudgy treat!

Take it a step further! What does Baking Powder do? Baking powder increases the volume and lightens the texture of baked goods. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into a batter or dough through an acid-base reaction, causing bubbles in the wet mixture to expand and thus making the mixture rise. This is why brownies are thinner than a normal chocolate cake!

INGREDIENTS 1  1/4 cup Nutella

2 large eggs

1/2 cup all purpose flour


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 inch x 9 inch metal baking pan. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix until batter is smooth. Pour into baking pan and smooth top with spatula.

2. Bake for about 15 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to bake too long otherwise brownies will dry out. Let brownies cool and set before cutting and serving.
