Easy Chocolate Brownies…it doesn’t get easier (or more indulgent) than this!

Chocolate Brownies

After learning how to make Chocolate Brownies through finding a delicious recipe for Salted Caramel Brownies (see my review here) I decided to ditch the caramel and use this recipe to make the classic chocolate brownie as it worked so amazingly well. You would not believe how quick and easy it is to make a batch (I certainly didn’t realise just how easy it would be…I choose this all the time when we eat out so how I’ve not made this before is a mystery – although honestly, I would always stick to my default World Famous Muffins as they are my signature bake).  Using only six ingredients, here’s how to make your own:

  • 200g unsalted butter, plus a little extra for greasing
  • 200g chocolate (I made mine with a 50/50 mix of milk and dark chocolate)
  • 200g golden caster sugar (I used white caster sugar as it was all I had)
  • 4 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 130g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder

You’ll also need:

  • 23cm tray bake tin
  • Medium saucepan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring scales
  • Spatula
  • Baking Parchment

Method:

  1. Heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius/Gas Mark 4
  2. Grease and line your baking tin with baking parchment
  3. Melt the butter and chocolate in a saucepan on a low heat, stirring continuously until fully melted
  4. Put the sugar and eggs into a mixing bowl and beat together until well combined
  5. Add in the melted chocolate and butter and stir again until combined
  6. Sift the flour and cocoa on top of the chocolate mix and beat briefly until smooth
  7. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tin and level it with a spatula
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until risen all the way to the middle with a firm crust on top. When ready, the brownie will jiggle just a little when you shake the tin
  9. Let it cool completely in the tin, then cut into squares

Check out the photo – look at the crust; look at the super indulgent centre…yes, it does taste as good as it looks. If you enjoyed this, why not make your own and share it with us on the What Corrine Did Next Facebook page?
