    Few people can resist chocolate, put it in a brownie and it gets even better. Try serving this version as a quick and easy dessert with ice cream and chocolate sauce.

    Serves: 20 

    • 1/2 cup (125g) butter, at room temperature
    • 1 1/3 cups (200g) dark chocolate, chopped
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup (230g) caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 cup (100g) walnuts, roughly chopped

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line with baking paper a 20cm square cake tin.
    2. Melt the butter and 3/4 cup of the chocolate in a bowl set over gently simmering water. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
    3. Whisk the eggs in a bowl with electric beaters. Gradually add the sugar; beat continuously until the mixture is thick, foamy and leaves a ribbon-like trail when the beaters are lifted. Add the vanilla essence and the chocolate mixture and blend in thoroughly.
    4. Sift flour and cocoa powder over the mixture then scatter in walnuts and the rest of the chocolate. Fold the mixture together with a large spoon.
    5. Pour batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is a rich brown. Place a piece of foil over the top if it looks to be in danger of burning. Cool brownies briefly in the tin; cut into squares. Cool brownies completely on a wire rack.

    These are ultra-chocolatey and fudgey. They were a huge hit at work  -  11 May 2013


    Average recipe. Tasted ok, not particularly sticky - the walnuts reduce the sweetness and add volume.  -  20 Jun 2016
