Gooey-centred Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Brownie


I’ve been craving something sweet and chocolaty lately and decided to take advantage of the fact that I’m still on leave and become the domestic goddess I know I could be (if I tried harder).

I’ve never considered myself the Martha Stewart type, but every now and then I feel like rolling up my sleeves and getting stuck in. Whether it be a new chicken recipe, or baking I try take advantage when the mood strikes as those days are far and few between. The main reason why I don’t bake is because of time. Why spend hours in the kitchen when there are a million great bakeries who have professionals do this for you? Well these brownies are super quick and easy to make (under in hour from start to finish) and they’re a definite crowd pleaser. Even I could make them.

  • Serves 8
  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Cooking time 30 minutes


  • 400 grams chocolate
  • 200 grams butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 ml castor sugar
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 250 ml plain flour

Cooking Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190’C for 15 mins
  2. Grease and line 25 x 25 cm baking tin with baking paper (I’m not a regular baker and just used spray and cook in a baking tray – that worked too)
  3. Melt 250 g of the chocolate and butter together in a bowl over simmering water. Set aside to cool.
  4. Chop remaining chocolate into chunks and set it aside.
  5. Beat together: eggs, castor sugar and vanilla until pale and fluffy, then beat into chocolate mixture.
  6. Fold in the flour, then stir in chocolate pieces
  7. Pour into the tin and bake for 25 – 30 minutes.
  8. Don’t be tempted to keep on cooking – its supposed to look “uncooked” and will set as it cools. The centre still needs to be soft and gooey.
  9. Cut into squares.

You can dust with icing sugar or cocoa if you like and decorate as desired. I used a variety of sprinkle toppings and grated some top deck chocolate on the others too. These sure do get rid of that sweet craving when it strikes.
