There are times when a craving for a single cookie, a slice of pie or some other type of decadent treat will not go away. Sometimes, when I want something sweet to eat, I don’t always feel like making a large batch. This is where my favorite smaller portion desserts such as this brownie recipe come in. Minimal time, minimal ingredients, wonderful taste in a smaller portion.

Single Serving Brownie Recipe

Here I’ve taken my tried and trusted brownie recipe and scaled it down a bit. Instead of making a normal batch of brownies, I’ve made just enough for one or two people.

For this easy brownie recipe, I use one bowl and one spoon so it keeps things super easy with fewer dishes to clean.

These brownies are chewy and slightly gooey with a lovely crackled crust. The rich center is moist and pretty close to perfect.

They’re so much better than boxed brownies and easy to make too. Just a few simple ingredients and you’re on your way to some incredible brownies.

Depending on the size of the pan you use, this recipe will yield about six smaller sized brownies or two large brownies that just call for a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

The pan I use often for mini cakes is an 8 x 6 baking pan.

I also use a standard bread loaf pan. Depending on the size of the pan you use, the baking time will be between 20-25 minutes.

If you use a larger pan than the ones mentioned above and the brownie batter is thinner, bake for less time. If the pan you use is smaller and the batter is thicker, bake a little longer.

Always test to see if the brownies are done by inserting a toothpick or the tip of a sharp knife in the center and if it comes out slightly sticky, they’re done.

This brownie recipe is the perfect dessert for date-night or when you want to curl up on the sofa with a great movie after a long day.

  1. I’d make a lot more brownies if I had this recipe! The kids eat their share and then I feel obligated to have the rest…this way they can eat the brownies and then it’s done!

  2. OMG – I love these recipe ideas for one! I am sharing with all my single gal friends as they complain that they hating cooking because they have leftovers! Perfection.
