The month of May is especially busy in my family as there are several birthdays, anniversaries, and other events during this time of year. Of course these celebrations often involve the baking, making, and partaking of sweets and desserts.
One of my family favourites is the following fudgey brownie recipe I use time and again. It's a one-bowl, super quick recipe and is wonderful just out of the oven with a couple of scoops of vanilla ice-cream. I can usually have it ready to bake in less than 10 minutes and it's done baking in about 20-25 minutes.
Enjoy and let me know how it goes!
Dark Chocolate Fudgey Brownies
- 1 stick (125 g) butter, melted
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate, melted
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup plain/all purpose flour
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celcius/350 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celcius/320 degrees Fahrenheit if fan forced).
Lightly grease a square metal baking pan.
Mix the butter, dark chocolate, cocoa, and sugars until well combined. Add both eggs and mix thoroughly. Stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Fold in the flour until just combined. The mixture will be quite thick.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes. It is ready when an inserted skewer shows a few crumbs. Don't bake it any longer so it retains its fudgey consistency.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
