Quick and Easy Chocolate Brownie

I love a good brownie. Who doesn't?
My friend made us a batch of these brownies when she came over for dinner and I just had to have the recipe.
It's super simple, but man - they have to be some of the best brownies I have ever tasted. Add some cream and OMG it's like heaven in your mouth.

  • 200g butter
  • 2 cups caster sugar
  • 1 cup coccoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200g chocolate chips
Melt butter in a large bowl (I just do this in the microwave). Sift in the cocoa, add the sugar and vanilla essence, mix to a smooth paste. Sift in the flour and baking powder, then add chocolate chips.
I put mine in a casserole dish, but the recipe says a 20cm x 30cm swiss roll tin. Bake at 150'C for 65 minutes.

The mixture should feel slightly under cooked, you can sprinkle with icing sugar once the brownie is cool.. I tend to serve mine warm with cream, so don't add any icing sugar.

I love how easy and quick this is to make, and once you have tasted it, you won't want to make any other brownie. I tried this one with white chocolate buttons, which was probably a bad idea, as the buttons were heavy and sunk to the bottom, so next time will just the smaller chips, so they disperse throughout the brownie mixture.


Original recipe seems to have come from a school recipe book - and it's titled Pandora's Chocolate Brownie, I tried to google it, but I can't find it.
