BY Asif

Here’s a super simple, but super yummy recipe of brownies that’d love to whip up for your family. 

Bonus: It has coco, and not baking/cooking chocolate so everyone can make it and enjoy it!  

You’d need: 

1 1/4 cup white sugar (granulated) 

3/4 plus 2 tbsp coco powder. 

1/2 cup plain flour. 

10 tbsp unsalted, softened butter 

1/4 tsp salt. 

1/2 tsp baking powder 

2 large eggs 

1/4 tsp vanilla essence 

2/3 cup chocolate chips OR chopped chocolate OR walnuts 

TIP: ALWAYS weigh dry ingredients (flour or coco powder) by lightly spooning it into the measuring cup, and levelling the top with a knife. 


Preheat oven at 175 C. 

Line and grease an 8×10 inch baking pan. 

1. In a heatproof glass bowl, combine coco, butter, sugar and salt. Microwave it in 19 second intervals till butter melts. Mix it well and let it cool for 8-10 minutes. 

2. Add eggs and vanilla and mix it well. The batter should look homogenous and silky. 

3. Add flour, baking powder and choc chips/walnuts/ chopped chocolate

4. Spread evenly in the lined and greased pan. 

5. bake for 20-22 minutes till the Centre is just set. Do not overbake the brownies.
