About this Recipe

By: The Nervous Cook

This is my family’s all time favourite chocolate brownie recipe.  It is a no fail, low mess recipe that will make kids and adults alike very happy.

For an adult version, just add some macadamias or walnuts, and if you serve them hot with ice cream, they make a wicked dessert!

Mixture doubles well – just double everything, cook in a larger pan for the same amount of time!

Ingredients

125g butter

185g dark chocolate

¾ cup castor sugar

2 eggs

1 cup plain flour

1tsp vanilla

20cm square cake tin lined with glad bake

Optional: macadamia or walnuts

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Melt butter & chocolate in microwave – stir every 30 seconds or over low heat on cook top – put bowl over simmering water so chocolate does not burn.

Step 2

When melted, take choc/butter mixture off the heat and mix in sugar. Then add eggs one at a time and mix in well. 

Step 3

Add flour and vanilla essence and mix until combined.

Step 4

Bake at 180 (160 fan forced) for 30-35 min.

Brownies are done when a skewer comes out clean 5cm from side of tin.

Cut into squares and dust with icing sugar.
