Nigella Lawson Brownies

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

I made these last night, and they are absolutely sinful. I've never made a batch of brownies with so much chocolate. I think her cooking time is a little on the short side, so opt for close to 40 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9 x 13" pan.
  2. In a double-boiler, or a small pan melt the butter and chocolate.
  3. whisk until well blended, and let cool.
  4. While chocolate is melting, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until frothy and slightly lighter in color.
  5. gently fold the cooled chocolate mixture into the eggs, and whisk until well blended.
  6. Fold in the flour and salt and mix well.
  7. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25- 30 minutes.
  8. Brownies are ready when the outside crust is lighter in color and speckled and the insides are still a little gooey (took about 40 minutes in my oven!).
  9. cool on a rack before slicing into 48 pieces.

These are better than anything you can buy in a box - a whole 9x13 pan lasted less than 24 hours in my house!

These are really chocolaty, and really delicious! Nigella really knows her brownies. I made as directed baking for only 35 minutes. I will add chopped nuts to my next batch, but I wanted the first to be exactly as the recipe described. Excellent! Thanks for posting, Mizzy!
