My Secret Chocolate Brownie Recipe

Category, , DifficultyBeginner

Speaking of chocolate brownies, apart from the brownie without cocoa powder I shared before, I got another crowd favourite. This recipe has been used for many many occasions and created loads of sweet memories. Please do not ask me why haven’t I shared it here before, but the reason I do now is only that my dear friends have been chasing after me for it, so here is my Secret Chocolate Brownie Recipe.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time15 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time45 mins


 130 g butter (room temperature)
 2 eggs
 1 cup plain flour
 ½ cup cocoa powder
 ½ cup caster sugar
 ½ cup brown sugar
 1 cup dark chococlate bits
 1 pinch salt
 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (you can use vanilla essence instead)
 1 tsp baking powder



Preheat the oven at 170° and melt the butter in a deep pan


Mix sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla been paste and baking powder, and pour the mixture in to the pan, mix till they’re all well combined;


Quickly remove the pan from the heat, let it cool down for a bit, around half minute;


Very quickly, whisk egg into the mixture, one at a time, until the mixture is really smooth;


Combine flour and baking powder, then sift the flour mixture and fold it through to the mixture in the pan;


Add choc bits, I normally use 1 cup but you can change the amount accordingly or use M&M instead to make it more playful;


Grease the square tin and pour the mixture into the tin;


Put it in the oven for 30 minutes. Do not worry if the brownie looks a bit soft, when you take it out of the oven. Just let it cool in the tin for 10 -15 minutes, as it will become solid and therefore easier to cut.
