Pop! the Magic Brownies

NO its not that kind of magic, unless you want it to be *wink*

So I gots me a new oven , AWWYEAAAH!!
There are very very few things that bring such joy to life. But yeah less jibber jabber . Let's get down to the business of making the best brownies there ever have existed, and they're just cocoa brownies!

This recipe has been tried and tested and made and remade and loved and loved and loved , so don't hesitate , Bake!

Borrowed from here .

Roastin me some walnuts

That's how brown it should get . anything more and bam ! blackness

Mixin it all in

Awesomeness Brownies

Preheat oven at 180 C
Grease with butter and dust  your favourite baking tray with cocoa powder.


150 gm(3/4 cup) Butter
250 gm (1&1/4 cup)Sugar - measure and then powder
3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Vanilla essence
2 Eggs (chilled)
35 gm(1/3 cup +1 Tbsp) Flour

1 cup Chopped walnuts, almonds, Lalala freedom to go nutso
1 cup chocolate chips or ooh White chocolate chips!*Just came up with this one . MUST TRY*
1 tsp Instant Coffee - incase you want an overly intense dark brownie experience.I honestly don't


  • Put butter in a pan and heat on low flame till light caramelly in colour. It'll be really foamy so keep swirling and by no means leave it unattended . It will burn and you will end up with brownie poo :(. This will take about 3-5 minutes. Switch off heat. Cool for like 5 minutes while you boogie/pee .
  • Add sugar and beat in with a wooden spoon ( your kitchen will now smell of butterscotch deliciousness)
  • Sift in cocoa powder (or don't , incase you like yourself some lumps) and coffee powder- if using ( Again - I don't)- and Vanilla essence .
Id like to take a break from the recipe to tell you that I use double or triple the amount of vanilla mentioned in any recipe . If like me you too like to live dangerously , follow suit.
  • Now crack those chilled from the fridge eggs in and beat with a wooden spoon . Beat and beat and sing a song about it too!
  • Sift the flour in and gently stir. Now add or not add your optional additives
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes .
And now My mouth is watering so Im gonna go bake another batch . Toodles :*
