Brownies on crack.

This is by far one of the easiest and most delicious Brownie recipes known to man. Follow the simple steps below to achieve Baking God/ess status on your way to FoodPorn heaven.

I got the recipe from ‘Tasty’ and tweaked it to my liking – you can watch their video here.


Servings: 9

8 ounces chocolate (or roughly 225g) – I use 1/4 dark chocolate and 3/4 milk chocolate
¾ cup butter, melted (I guessed this was about 180g and it turned out fine…)
1¼ cups sugar (granulated sugar is fine)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
¾ cup plain flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt


Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F/180°C.

Reach your chocolate out and stare at it lovingly… eat any extra.


Step 2

Chop chop chop your chocolate. Try and get a mixture of big chunks and little chunks.


Step 3

Melt half of your chocolate and save half.

I melted mine in a microwave on a low heat for bursts of 30 seconds because I couldn’t find a glass bowl…

Try not to eat any, but you’re allowed to lick the spoon.


Step 4

Whisk/mix the melted butter and sugar together.

It will look like it’s never going to work as it’s so runny and you will panic. Don’t.


Step 5

Keep whisking. Add the vanilla.


Step 6

Keeeeeep whisking. Add the eggs. Whisk until you think your arm is going to drop off, then whisk a bit more.


Step 7

…after 1-2 minutes the mixture should become nice and fluffy and will look much lighter than before (I told you not to panic...)

Whisk in the melted chocolate – make sure it’s not too hot or the eggs will start to cook(!)


Step 8

Et voilà – it should look something like this.


Step 9

Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and salt.

Try not to get flour all over the kitchen worktop/floor/yourself like I did.


Step 10

Fold the dry ingredients in. Do not stir them or whisk – gently does it! This will keep the brownies nice and light.


Step 11

Fold in the chocolate chunks. Take a moment to appreciate how beautiful it is.


Step 12

Pour the godly mixture into a baking tin/dish lined with baking paper (yay less washing up).

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or if your oven isn’t great like ours then until they stop wobbling on the top!

They firm up a little as they cool so keep that in mind.


Step 13


Try not to eat them all in one sitting.

Or do, I’m not here to judge :).

Catch you next time, LS x
