Chocolate Brownies

Simply delicious. 
Simply Chocolate Brownies. 


150g semi sweet chocolate 
120g unsalted butter
180g light brown sugar
2 eggs
5ml vanilla extract 
65g self raising flour 
4. Tbsp cocoa powder
40g milk chocolate chips 
40g chopped walnuts 

This is my favourite cocoa powder, I find it makes the bakes deeper in colour than other brands I've tried. It's also very chocolatey in flavour. 


Preheat the oven for 180c. 
Melt butter & chocolate in a separate bowl over a double boiler. 

Then add the melted butter into the melted chocolate mixing carefully until combined.
Now you have the ingredients all ready. You can start mixing. 

Whisk melted butter with brown sugar till combined and add eggs gradually.
Add vanilla essence and fold in the sifted flour and cocoa powder. 
mix the chocolate chips with chopped walnuts into the batter.

Pour your batter into the lined baking tin, smooth it out with a spatula. 
And bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. 
Take out the oven and cool for 5 minutes before you remove from the baking tin. 
Peel off the baking paper Andover it cool on a cooling rack. 
Nice shiny crust and chewy Center. 
You can freeze these and they are great with ice cream sundaes.




  1. Hi, when did u add in the semi sweet chocolate?

  2. What tin size have u used for this recipe .
    Can we use salted butter ?

    1. yes you can use salted butter, I've used 8x8 cake tin

  3. Can we substitute norml sugar instead of brwn sugar

    1. yes you can, using brown sugar gives it a caramel taste which is tastier.

  4. is there 2 portion of butter? The measurement of 120g butter have to divide into half for melted chocolate and for sugar and eggs?

    1. no just one, add it with the melted chocolates and then mix in the sugar and eggs.

  5. Hi mandy, this recipe is simply delicious. Thanks for helping me look like a pro.
