If you are a baking newbie, this is the perfect recipe for you! There’s minimal baking skills required unless you consider mixing ingredients a skill. It’s quick,easy and most importantly,yummy! You are just 7 steps away from chocolate heaven!So,what are you waiting for?


Makes 12

80g (2 ¾ oz) butter

40g (1/3 cup) cocoa powder

145g (2/3 cup) caster (superfine) sugar

2 eggs

60g (1/2 cup) plain ( all-purpose) flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

100g (1/2 cup) chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven on to 180C (350F/Gas 4).

2. Brush your cake tin with oil or melted butter, put a piece of baking paper in the bottom.

3. Melt the butter in a saucepan. When it is ready, take it off the heat and stir in the cocoa and sugar,followed by the eggs.

4. Put a sieve over the saucepan and tip in the flour and baking powder,along with a pinch of salt. Sift everything into the saucepan, then mix it in. NOTE: Make sure you don’t have any pockets of flour.

5. Add the chocolate chips and stir them in.

6.Pour the mixture into your tin and bake it for 30 minutes or until cooked (depending on the size of the tin used).

7. Once cooked, leave the slab to cool in the tin,then tip it out and cut it into brownie pieces.


This is my first brownie attempt and I found this recipe quick and easy. Not to mention,yummy! If you are a first timer, you will know your brownies are cooked when you can poke a skewer or knife into the middle of them and it comes out clean. Remember though, the chocolate chips make have melted and if your skewer hits one of those, it might look as if the mixture is still wet. I also mix the cocoa and sugar together in the bowl first rather than adding one after the other to have a better well-mixed consistency (maybe my extemporaneous preparation in the pharmacy helps to explain this!). If you don’t want to put chocolate chips, you can always add other variations such as white chocolate or dark chocolate,whatever that ticks your fancy.
