The Best Fudgy Chocolate Brownies

Who doesn't love the chewy, fudgy, chocolatey, crunchy goodness of freshly baked brownies! They're like the perfect cross between fudge, cookie and cake and go oh so well with ice cream.

This recipe for fudgy chocolate brownies was found by my grandmother who is the best cook I know. She got me to make them and agreed that they are the best brownies she's had so far! They come out chewy, fudgy and warm on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Easy to make and so yummy.

Ingredients -
  • 10 tbsp Butter
  • 1 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract/Essence
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 3/4 cup Walnuts (Optional)
Mix the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a microwavable bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals, mixing in between, until all the butter is melted and the mixture is relatively smooth. It may appear grainy but that will be taken care of once the rest of the ingredients are added. (If you don't have a microwave you could use a stove, be sure not to burn the ingredients).

Let the mixture cool a little bit till it is warm to the touch. Add the vanilla extract and eggs and stir well. Add the flour and if using walnuts add as well. Fold it all together till the flour is completely incorporated.

Pour the mixture into a cake tin lined with foil (to make it easier to take it out) and bake at 325 F for 20 - 25 mins until a toothpick poked in the middle comes out with just a few crumbs. Take out and let it cool before slicing.

Gobble them up just like that or serve with ice cream.
