Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are one of those magical things that have migrated from the US, along with Coca-Cola, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Hallowe’en.  And the best brownies are slightly gooey in the middle… just like these ones!


  • 125g unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (Dutch cocoa powder is the best)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 125g dark chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Grease a 20cm or 9″ slice tin and line with baking paper.
  2. Mix butter, eggs, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt until even consistency – this will be dry.
  3. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Stir until melted.
  4. Pour melted chocolate into batter and mix until just combined.
  5. Pour into slice tin and bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out with moist crumbs clinging.
  6. Set aside to cool.
