Perfect Chocolate Brownies Recipe

Chocolate BrowniesI’ve had a go at making chocolate brownies many times over the years but the perfect chocolate brownies recipe has always eluded me. Last week though I came across a recipe which is absolutey brilliant and gives you the perfect brownies in less than 40 minutes! Just 15 minutes to prepare and 25 mins to cook!

Chocolate Brownies

75g plain chocolate (I used Bournville but it doesn’t matter if you use another one)

100g butter

125g caster sugar

3 eggs

125g self-raising flour

25g cocoa

1 tablespoon icing sugar

  • Heat oven to Gas 5 or 190C electric. Grease & line 20cm square tin
  • Put chocolate & butter into heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water to melt.
  • Whisk sugar and eggs together until frothy
  • Fold in the melted chocolate mixture
  • Pour into prepared tin and bake for 20 to 25 mins until risen and just firm. Cool and cut into 20 squares. If you want you can dust with icing sugar.

All that’s left to do now is eat them! Yummy!

Here’s another Chocolate Brownies Recipe which worked well for me.

Mrs C
In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
