Hello and welcome to another baking post! I asked my fiance if there was anything he would like me to bake, other than the usual cookies I do most weeks, and he responded with ‘chocolate brownies!’. I haven’t made brownies from scratch in quite some time, and they are super easy to make! It was a good idea from him, and I also already had all the ingredients which was a huge bonus!
This recipe I used makes 16 brownies, but this also depends on the size of your tin. It is best to use a square tin, around 22cm x 22cm.
What you need
- 125g butter, melted
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 3 eggs (60g)
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla essence
- 1 ½ cup caster sugar
- ¾ cup plain flour
- Pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees C and line a square baking dish with baking paper and oil spray.
- Sift the cocoa powder into a mixing bowl, then add the melted butter. Whisk together with a fork until smooth.
- Whisk together the eggs and vanilla essence, then add to the cocoa mixture. Again, whisking with a fork.
- Stir through the caster sugar with a wooden spoon until well combined.
- Fold in the flour and stir gently until just combined.
- Pour the mixture into the baking dish and evenly spread it out.
- Place baking dish in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until firm to touch. Allow the brownies to cool in the tray before cutting and serving.
- Eat and enjoy!
This recipe is so quick and easy, anyone could do it! This recipe can also be made dairy-free by using Nuttelex/dairy-free margarine instead of butter. You can also add things into it with different texture and to add additional flavour, such as:
- Dried fruit
- Choc chips
