Baking with Chelsea – Brownies

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


The method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees C and line a square baking dish with baking paper and oil spray.


  1. Sift the cocoa powder into a mixing bowl, then add the melted butter. Whisk together with a fork until smooth.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and vanilla essence, then add to the cocoa mixture. Again, whisking with a fork.
  3. Stir through the caster sugar with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  4. Fold in the flour and stir gently until just combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and evenly spread it out.
  6. 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.
  7. 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:

  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit
  • Choc chips
  • Coconut

Thank you for reading this recipe post – I hope you try it out! You can view the original recipe here.
