Chocolate brownies


  • 175g butter
  • 250g cooking chocolate (better quality = better result)
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line a 20 x 30cm sponge roll tin.
  2. In a medium sized saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over a low heat. Remove saucepan from the heat and stir in flour, sugar, vanilla, eggs and walnuts (if using) and mix until well combined.
  3. Pour in tin and bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle has crumbs sticking to it. Be careful not to overcook it because dry brownies aren’t very nice! Delicious (and indulgent!) iced with chocolate icing.
