"Imagine the softest, gooiest brownie make it yourself!"

  • Baking
  • Chocolate



  • 100g Butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence (a good one!)
  • 1 cup (NZ) brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 400g dark choc, melted and cooled
  • Icing sugar to dust
  • 4 tsp instant coffee powder
  • 70g chopped nuts
  • 50g glace cherries
  1. Preheat the over to 180C, 350F. Lightly grease and line a 30 x 20 cm rectangular baking pan with baking paper.
  2. Melt chocolate carefully and leave to cool. This is crucial or you end up with bits of cooked egg in your brownie as you make it - yuck!
  3. Combine butter, vanilla essence and brown sugar in mixer and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs, 1 at a time and beat well until each combined.
  5. Add flour and any optional ingredients.
  6. Mix in cooled chocolate and pour into the prepared tin.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until just firm. Remove from oven and leave in pan to cool.
  8. Lift out the baking paper, cut into squares, dust with icing sugar and serve. Makes about 20 3 x 3 cm squares.
  9. This also makes a great dessert with ice cream, cream or yoghurt.
