Chocolate Brownie Recipe

11 Jul

This is a recipe which has been passed down to me by my Mum. I have good memories of eating it with my best friend when we got home from school!

The way is goes crispy on the outside, while still staying gooey on the inside is just amazing, especially considering it is such a simple recipe!

It can be served as a snack, as part of afternoon tea, or could be served warm, with ice cream or cream as a yummy pudding.


  • 4 oz Butter
  • 1 – 1 ½ oz Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 8 oz Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2 oz Self Raising Flour
  • 2 oz Raisins / Nuts/ Chocolate Chunks


1. Grease and line an 8” tin (I normally just use a normal round cake tin) and preheat the oven to 180º.


2. Melt the butter over a low heat and stir in the cocoa powder until melted and combined.


3. While the butter is melting beat the eggs and sugar together in a bowl – then add the combined chocolate mixture, along with the vanilla essence.


4. Sift the flour and slowly combine into the mixture. Add raisins, nuts or chocolate chunks as required. I don’t normally add anything so it’s just really to taste.


5. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
