  • 1 cup salted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease the Baker’s Secret 8x8 square pan and set aside. In a large bowl combine melted butter, oil, granulated and brown sugar. Whisk to combine. Add in vanilla and eggs and beat for 30 seconds, until the batter becomes a lighter brown.
  2. Sift in flour, cocoa powder and salt. Mix lightly until just combined. Add in the red food dye and mix until evenly incorporated. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center no longer jiggles. If you want fudgy brownies, do not over bake! If you prefer cakey brownies, bake for 5-8 minutes longer. Remove from the over and let cool completely before frosting.


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth, about 1 minute. Add in the vanilla, salt, powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk. Cream until smooth. Add additional milk if needed. Top the brownies with the cream cheese frosting and use a spoon or spatula to spread an even layer. Will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days!
