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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

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.
