Cocoa Brownies

Okay, okay… I know we have a lot of brownie recipes – and we keep on calling them the best (which they are) – but there is always room for one more variant.

These brownies are chewy and super rich, and yet contain no melted chocolate. I made these last night for a last minute dinner and they were such a hit that I was ordered (yes, ordered) to put them up on the website.

They take 15 minutes to make and 25 minutes to bake.



Cocoa Batter

160 g salted butter, melted

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 325 F or 170 C and line a square baking pan with parchment paper, or just grease it.

2. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and whisk until bubbly.

3. Add the cocoa powder, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Pour in the flour. Mix until creamy.

4. Fold in the chocolate chips.

5. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is set and a knife comes out with just a few crumbs attached.
