  • 100  (3.5oz) dark (70%) chocolate
  • 113  (1 stick / 1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • large eggs, room temp
  • cup  caster sugar
  • 1/4  cup  (50g) dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 130  (1 cup) plain (all purp) flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 25 g (1/4 cup) cocoa
  • 3/4  cup  milk chocolate chips

  • Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / 160C fan forced. Grease and line an 8x8 inch square baking tin with baking paper.
  • Place the butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each until melted and smooth. Set aside.

  • Add the melted chocolate and butter and the vanilla and stir through with a spatula.
  • Sift over the plain flour, cocoa and salt and stir through with a spatula until just combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for around 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with some sticky crumbs on it (see notes).


Equipment used: 8x8 inch square baking tin, handheld beater
  1. For best results, you should always weigh ingredients like flour and sugar. Kitchen scales are relatively cheap but if you can’t weigh the ingredients, use the spoon and level method (don’t scoop).
  2. Brownies are done when a toothpick comes out with a few sticky crumbs on it. They will carry-over bake in the tin.
    • Toothpick comes out with wet mix - not done
    • Toothpick comes out with sticky crumbs - DONE
    • Toothpick comes out with no mix or crumbs - overdone (save these for serving with ice cream - yum
