Fudgey Brownies

29 Nov

I don’t think there is one person I know that doesn’t like brownies. Its like saying you don’t like chocolate but one hundred times stranger! That is why I think every person should have a go to brownie recipe because then they will never ever be stuck for any occasion  whether it is a birthday party or to say thank you to someone, they always go down a treat (No pun intended!). I have tried out many, many brownie recipes. I have to admit there was a point there that I was ready to admit that I would never find a brownie recipe that I was one hundred percent happy with and that was when I found this recipe. It is so perfect. It is easy first of all which I think is a must. It is also rich but not ovrly so without even using real chocolate in the batter. And most importantly it has a heavenly fudgey, chewy texture that is super moist but not runny which screams perfect brownie. There is nothing I hate more then a dry, cakey “brownie”!

Fudgey Brownies (Makes about 14 slices)

1 cup butter

2 1/4 cups caster sugar

1 1/4 cups cocoa powder

1/2tsp salt

1tsp baking powder

1tsp vanilla extract

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups plain flour

2 cups white chocolate chips

  • Preheat the oven to 175ºc/350ºf and grease and line a 9″ x 13″ tin.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan or a bowl in the microwave. Once melted, stir in the sugar and either return to the heat or the microwave and heat until the sugar is more dissolved and the mixture comes away from the sides when you stir it.
  • Mix in the cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Beat in the eggs one at a time until they are all incorporated and you have a smooth glossy mixture.
  • Stir in the flour and chocolate chips then pour into the prepared tin and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Bake in the oven for 30-35mins or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out with only a few moist crumbs on it.
  • Let cool completely in the tin then remove and cut into slices
