Best ever classic chocolate brownies

By Janine Ratcliffe, Olive Magazine

A classic, gooey chocolate brownie recipe that can be ramped up with added ingredients. We’ve included three suggestions of additional ingredients for more opportunities (excuses) to bake this wonder.

Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: serves 12


  • butter 100g, chopped
  • dark chocolate 200g, chopped
  • eggs 4
  • golden caster sugar 250g
  • plain flour 100g
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • cocoa 30g


  • white or milk chocolate chunks 100g, chopped
  • hazelnuts 100g, toasted, roughly chopped
  • pecans 100g, toasted, roughly chopped
  • baby marshmallows 2 handfuls


Step 1

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.

Step 2

Line a 22cm square brownie tin with baking parchment. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a microwave or in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Whisk the eggs and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Step 4

Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and sift on the flour, baking powder, and cocoa.

Step 5

Fold this in to give a fudgy batter.

Step 6

(To ramp it up, add 100g chopped white or milk chocolate chunks OR 100g toasted, roughly chopped hazelnuts or pecans OR 2 handfuls of baby marshmallows.)

Step 7

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is cracked but the middle just set. Cool completely, then lift out of the tin and cut.
