I Have The Secret To The Best Brownies In The World!

I consider my children, at 3, to be well informed, experienced connoisseurs of the ever popular "Brownie".  Above all slices, biscuits and cakes I have ever baked, the one they repeatedly request is this ever loyal treasure.  It never fails in its delightful taste and texture and is so easy to make...all with ingredients we more often than not have residing in our pantries.  All credit goes to Donna Hay - Australian celebrity chef, food stylist, editor, author and Midas touch giver to these fast and fabulous Brownies!


You'll need:-

  • 150g butter
  • 1 1/4 cups castor sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plain flour

How it happens:-

In a saucepan, stir the butter, castor sugar and cocoa over a low heat until smooth. Place this in a bowl and adding the eggs and vanilla extract.  Sift the flour into the mixture and combine.  Pour the mixture into a tin lined with baking paper and put into a 160 deg C oven for 30-35 minutes or until a knife blade comes out clean.  Allow the Brownies to cool in the tin before cutting and dusting with icing sugar.

I am asked for this recipe time and time again.  Everybody says they are the best Brownies they have ever tasted!  Enjoy....
