These were delicious and fudgy. And were surprisingly easy.

Makes 14 huge slabs.


250g butter
250g dark cooking chocolate
4 large eggs
2 t vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups plain flour (sifted)
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
chopped walnuts (about 1.5 cups, or more to your liking)
chocolate chips (about 1.5 cups, or more to your liking)


Preheat oven to 180 deg C.

Butter a brownie baking pan and line the base with parchment paper.

Melt the butter and cooking chocolate. Set aside to cool slightly.

Lightly beat eggs, sugar and vanilla essence.

Add egg mixture to chocolate mixture. Stir in flour and baking powder. Stir gently until all the flour is incorporated into the chocolate mixture. Don’t over beat.

Pour mixture into greased pan and bake for 30 mins.

  1. Hi, I tried baking this recipe of yours over the weekend. Smells heavenly and almost perfect, except for the texture. I am not a pro baker, hence i followed your instructions completely. However, the brownies turned out to be more spongey (powdery) instead of fudgey/chewy. Is it because I added too much flour (1.5 cups as per your instructions)?

    • Hi Michelle, I’m really not sure why the brownies didn’t work well for you. My kids loved them. I haven’t baked these in a while so I can’t remember if they were fudgey/chewy. I double checked my notes, the amount of flour is correct. Perhaps I would try underbaking them a little. Some ovens could be overly efficient and cakes/brownies can get overcooked thus becoming “powdery”. Try underbaking by 5 mins. Were the brownies nicely browned or slightly burnt?
