Plain flour

Cocoa powder

List the amount of every ingredient I will need to make these.

The Best Brownies

0:10 Prep  0:35 Cook  Makes 1 tray of 20 brownies


Melted butter or margarine, for greasing

125g butter, chopped

200g (1 cup, firmly packed) soft brown sugar

125g dark chocolate, chopped

3 eggs

50g (1/3 cup) plain flour

35g (1/3 cup) cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

150g (1 1/4 cup) walnuts



Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease an 18 x 28cm cake tin with the melted butter or margarine and line the base of the pan with non-stick baking paper.

Combine butter, sugar and chocolate in a large microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl. Heat, uncovered, for 2-4 minutes on Medium High/650 J watts/70%, stirring every minute until well combined.

Remove from heat and beat in the eggs using a wooden spoon.

Sift together the flour, cocoa and baking powder into the chocolate mixture and stir until well combined. Stir in the walnuts. Pour into the prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until firm and until a few crumbs cling to a skewer when it’s inserted into the centre.


These reliable brownies are equally delicious served as a dessert, straight from the oven in larger portions with scoops of vanilla ice-cream. For those who are not big fans of nuts, you can substitute with white chocolate chips or leave out the nuts altogether.
