Chewy Chocolate Brownies

This is a fantastic brownie recipe for those chocolate addicts like myself. I originally got the recipe from a lady at work and modified it slightly.
I get regular requests to make them and they have become a family favourite. If you cut them a little larger you can serve them as a dessert warmed in the microwave with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.


  • 125g western star butter

  • 1 cup caster sugar

  • ¼ cup nestle cocoa powder

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon of queen vanilla bean paste

  • 1/3 cup plain flour

  • pinch of salt

  • 250g club chocolate (good quality chocolate makes it so much better, i like to use chocolate with nuts or toblerone)


  • 1.

    Butter a brownie pan and line with baking paper (gladbake).

  • 2.

    Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  • 3.

    Break chocolate into squares and place on the bottom of your prepared baking pan.

  • 4.

    Gently melt butter in microwave.

  • 5.

    Place sugar, cocoa, eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl and combine using a spatula.

  • 6.

    Add melted butter and mix well.

  • 7.

    Add sifted flour, salt and mix well.

  • 8.

    Cook in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  • 9.

    Remove from oven and cool in pan.

  • 10.

    When sufficiently cool cut into squares. You can remove by gently pulling on the baking paper and cut on a cutting board if you like.

  • 11.

    Lightly dust with sifted icing sugar.

  • 12.

    Refrigerate in a sealed container until needed.


This recipe keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for weeks and freezes well.
