Super Chocolate Brownie recipe

Brownies are interesting treats — one can totally mess up the proportion of ingredients, but they will somehow still work.  The variations just result in either a chewy or fudgey brownie, or somewhere in between.  But once you over-bake them, they become a dry, inedible mess.  Do not exceed 25 minutes of baking in the oven when you follow this rec1pe.  The brownies will continue to cook to perfection while cooling.


Brownies RecipeBrownies (makes one 8×8 inches pan)

  • 85g  plain flour (3/4 cup)
  • 30g cocoa-power (2 tbsp)
  • 55g salted butter (1/2 cup)
  • 100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 225g caster sugar (1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ml vanilla extract (1 tsp)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (Optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 175°C (350F) and line an 8×8 inches baking pan with buttered parchment baking paper.
  2. Melt butter, chocolate and sugar together in a large, dry mixing bowl. The simplest way is to warm the mixture in a microwave and stir it at 30 seconds intervals.  Alternatively, the traditional melting method calls for the use of a  ‘double boiler’.  Once melted, leave to cool. You will still see sugar crystals.
  3. Stir in the eggs and vanilla extract (and the optional sour cream).
  4. Stir in flour and cocoa-power
  5. Spread into prepared pan and bake for exactly 25 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and leave to cool in pan for at least 20 minutes before cutting.
