I wish I had a pound for every time I have made brownies in my life and for every new brownie recipe I have tried! I’d be a rich woman! This is my old standard that I return to every time. Moist and delicious with full on chocolate flavour, these are everything a good brownie should be! You can leave the nuts out if you wish. If you want you can add chocolate chips instead. They then become double chocolate fudge brownies!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180*C/350*F.
  2. Grease and flour the bottom of an 8 inch square glass baking dish; tap out any extra flour.
  3. Melt the butter along with the chocolate over low heat in a large pot.
  4. Allow to cool, then stir in the sugar, eggs (one at a time) vanilla, flour and salt, mixing with a wooden spoon and being careful not to over mix, no more than 50 strokes!
  5. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out a little wet if you want fudgy brownies.
  7. Bake until it comes out cleaner if you want cake type brownies, about 40 to 45 minutes for the fudgy ones.
  8. Let cool a bit before cutting into squares.

Nice and chewy and delicious. We love the nuts in them, and I have to admit I added 1 cup and it wasn't too much for us!

Make sure you don't overbeat these or they will come out cake-like instead of chewy! I added 1 c. of nuts instead of 1/2 c., as we love them throughout the brownies, the more the better! We loved these chewy moist brownies! I'm glad we had a whole pan, because we couldn't leave them alone :) Thanks MarieAlice for another great dessert!
