Living Local

Kara Thompson, WFXR-TV’s morning meteorologist on Good Day Virginia and Living Local, shows how to make a perfect brownie. The recipe is below:


  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F. Spray 8×8 or 9×9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and cocoa powder. Set aside. 
  • In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the chopped unsweetened chocolate and cubed butter. Stir occasionally until it’s fully melted.
  • In a larger mixing bowl, beat the sugar, eggs, and egg yolk with an electric mixer for 1 minute, until the mixture is pale yellow and doubled in volume. 
  • Once the chocolate is melted, pour it into the egg mixture. Then add the vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Stir with a spatula to combine. 
  • Spoon the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, mixing with a spatula just until combined.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-33 minutes (glass pan) 25-27 minutes (metal pan) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
