Everyone should have a dependable brownie recipe. It's important to get the baking time right, so check regularly with a skewer until the mixture looks set, yet still moist and slightly gooey.
- 250g unsalted butter
- 125g dark chocolate (58 per cent cocoa), chopped
- 2 cups castor sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/4 cup dutch cocoa
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 125g toasted walnuts, chopped
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat fan-forced oven to 180C (200C conventional). Lightly grease and line a 18cm x 28cm shallow rectangular cake pan. Heat butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time and stir in vanilla. Sift in dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended. Stir in walnuts. Pour into prepared pan and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out covered with lots of gooey crumbs. Then, remove from oven and allow to cool in pan. Cut into rectangles.
