Peter Ojansuu from Melbourne’s Arintji shares his ultimate brownie recipe that is the perfect combination of gooey, fudgy and nutty.


  • 125g butter, softened

  • 125g good quality dark chocolate

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 165g caster sugar

  • 75g plain flour

  • Pinch of salt

  • 100g walnuts


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a small loaf tin with baking paper.

  • 2.

    Melt the butter and chocolate together in a large heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.

  • 3.

    Sift the flour and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla gently.

  • 4.

    Add the egg and sugar mixture to the melted chocolate, followed by the walnuts and flour. Beat to combine.

  • 5.

    Pour the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes (the centre should have a slight wobble to remain gooey).

  • 6.

    Cool at room temperature for 1 hour then refrigerate to set.

  • 7.

    Once set, dip a knife into hot water and cut the brownie into squares, dust with cocoa and serve, preferably with a scoop of good quality raspberry sorbet.
