My Brownie Recipe

I brought in brownies to work today, and it caused me to realise that I’ve never posted my brownie recipe.

Given that my brownie recipe is the best in the entire world, and really easy to make to boot, this is a mistake that should be rectified.

Note: Cups here are US cups. i.e. about 240ml


  • One pat butter (I think these are 250g)
  • Two cups granulated white sugar
  • One cup cocoa. The darker the better. Use the best you can find – these brownies live or die on the quality of their cocoa
  • One cup flour
  • Four eggs


Melt the butter. Stir in the sugar and the cocoa until it’s thoroughly mixed. Add the flour and eggs and stir further.

Decant the whole mix into a greased baking tray (I usually make these about half an inch deep). Bake at 160C for about 20 minutes. Check the brownies religiously towards the end. If you overcook these they will be too dry (still tasty, but less delicious). The brownies are ready when you can stick a knife in the middle and it comes out clean.
