Best Chocolate Brownies

This is my family favourite.To be frank,I'm not a huge fan of chocolate cake but when it comes to brownies... it consumes me...There is only simple way on how to make brownies and as many possible good results.For me , a good one MUST be chewy or gooey or flaky , rich, buttery and chocolatey or if you’re really lucky, all of the above.Fat will always be the best..I'm a big fan of Nuttella f.y.i...The best part is always the corner part with all the richness of cocoa flavour you can imagine.Let me share this with you.. and you won't regret....


200 grams butter
200 grams plain chocolate
450 grams caster sugar - i find it too sweet, so i cut it down from 600gm original recipe
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
250 grams plain flour
4 tablespoons cocoa
i add couple tbsp of nutella (crazy about it) , some nuts as an additional flavour

How to?

  1. Preheat oven to 180C, Gas 4
  2. Prepare a small rectangular roasting tin or oven proof dish approximately 8 x 12" (20 x 30cm). Grease or line with baking parchment.
  3. Melt the chopped butter and chocolate over a pan of simmering water OR in a microwave. Cool slightly.
  4. Stir in the sugar and vanilla.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring until well blended each time.
  6. Sift the flour and cocoa together, add to the mixture and beat for about 1 minute, until smooth.
  7. Pour into prepared tin, and bake for about 45 - 50 minutes. The mixture needs to be just cooked, so start testing with a cocktail stick at about 40 minutes - it should have moist crumbs, but not wet batter, still clinging to it.
  8. Cool in tin until completely cold before removing from tin.
  9. I cut this size into 24 pieces (8 x 3), but it could easily make more smaller pieces as it is very rich.
  10. You can make a half quantiity and bake in a 7 x 7" tin for about 40 minutes (test after 35 min)"
