Equipment

  • 1 x 20cm square baking tin

  • 150 grams butter
  • 1 cup caster sugar 220 grams
  • ¾ cup of cocoa 75 grams
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup plain flour 75 grams

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line the base and sides of a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
  • In a large saucepan (you want it to be big enough to accommodate the extra ingredients added later), melt the butter, cocoa and sugar over a low heat – stirring continuously.
  • Add the vanilla extract and eggs - whisking the mixture as you go.
  • Sift the flour over the mixture and whisk to combine.
  • Pour the brownie mixture into your prepared baking tin and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Allow Brownie to cool completely in the tin before removing and then cut into pieces to serve.

Thermomix Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line the base and sides of a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
  • Place the butter(cubed), caster sugar and cocoa into your Thermomix bowl and cook for 3 minutes, 65 degrees speed 2. If the butter hasn’t quite melted, cook for a further 1 minute, 65 degrees, speed 2.
  • Add the vanilla extract, eggs and plain flour and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4 to combine
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for another 10 seconds, speed 4.
  • Pour the brownie mixture into your prepared baking tin and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Allow Brownie to cool completely in the tin before removing and then cut into pieces to serve.

Notes

  • It's important not to overcook this recipe, otherwise you won't get a soft and fudgey brownie.
  • As tempting as it is, make sure you let the brownie cool completely in the baking tin before cutting, as this helps it to set.
  • If you don't have any cocoa, you can also use cacao, this will give your brownies a richer flavour.
  • You can ice the brownies with a simple chocolate icing (recipe here) or leave plain.
  • These brownies are freezer friendly.
