Recipe instructions for chocolate brownies

1. Preheat the oven to 170C. Line the baking tin with greaseproof paper. Greasing the tin with butter will not be enough when you’re baking anything with a chewy centre, so it is important to line the baking tin with greaseproof paper.
2. Put the dark chocolate chunks and the butter in to the same bowl. Melt this over low heat and stir with a wooden spoon until melted.
3. Once the chocolate and butter have completely melted, put this bowl aside to let it cool down completely. Then add the sugar and stir well.

4. Add the beaten eggs and vanilla extract into the bowl and stir until smooth.
5. Next, add the chocolate chips, flour and salt into the bowl and lightly fold in the mixture. Don’t beat the mixture too heavily, keep it light and airy as you can. You don’t want to over-beat this part.

6. Pour the mixture in the lined cake tin and tap the sides a couple of times to get rid of air bubbles.
7. Place the tin in the middle of the oven at 170C and bake for 45 minutes.

8. After 45 minutes, check to see if it’s cooked by sticking a toothpick in the middle of the brownies. If it’s baked, the toothpick should come out clean.
9. Let it cool in the tin for 15 minutes and then remove it on to a cooling rack. Leave it to cool down completely before cutting in to it. Cut to size as desired. I’ve gone for 16 little squares.

Finally, enjoy your chocolate brownies! Every last crumb will be gone before you know it! But as they’re so easy to make, you can whip up another batch in no time!
They taste the best on the day you’ve baked them if you like the chewy-ness. They will soften up the day after in to a divine melt-in-your-mouth chocolate ganache kind of texture.

  1. Oh my! These look incredible! This post has made me one very hungry girl, who is now 100% craving chocolate brownies! x


  2. These look really good. I love making brownies… they are kinda legendary. My boyfriend takes them to work and shares them between everyone. I like to put Lindt Lindor chocolates in the middle. The only thing I hate is the fact they create that top layer lol… I end up grating white chocolate over them to make it look pretty xx

    1. That's a great question, and I can see why this would confuse anyone. After a quick search on the Internet, I discovered that there are a few reasons but the main one is that: Baking recipes call for unsalted butter and then have you add salt is so that the amount of salt is controlled by you. Different brands of salted butter may have differing amounts of salt added, and by adding it yourself you can add according to recipe, or even to your own taste. Hope this helps!

  5. HI, I am making your brownies is it right that it is only 30g of flour? it does;'t seem like a lot of flour so I though I would check 🙂
