How to make easy chocolate brownies

Follow this simple 9-step chocolate brownie recipe and enjoy the most delicious homemade brownies you’ve ever tasted!

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160° Fan, 350°F, Gas 4.

Step 2

Bring a saucepan one third full of water to the boil and take off the heat.

Step 3

Put the butter and the chopped chocolate in a bowl and place it over the hot water to melt.

Step 4

Stir at intervals and when melted, leave to cool.

Step 5

Whisk the eggs and sugar together for 8-10 mins. It should increase in volume and become frothy.

Step 6

Pour in the melted chocolate mix and stir gently.

Step 7

Sieve and fold in the flour and cocoa powder. Add a tablespoon of golden syrup to enhance the moisture to your brownies.

Pro tip

If you’re looking for something to go nicely alongside your freshly baked homemade brownies, try a scoop or two of ice cream. Alternatively, hot fudge sauce, caramel sauce, or raspberry sauce are other popular favourites!

Step 8

Pour mixture into an 8-inch tin lined with parchment paper and bake for 25-30 mins or until the crust on the top is cracking and middle is soft but not runny.

Pro tip

You can store your leftover brownies (if there are any left!) in an airtight tin. They should last about 4 days if stored in the cupboard, and up to a week if stored in the fridge.

Step 9

Leave to cool before taking out of the tin.

Pro tip

Your brownies will taste even better if you keep them in an airtight container for 24 hours before eating. The question is…can you wait that long?! Be sure to share this chocolate brownie recipe with your family and friends!
