A very detailed method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced.
  2. Grease a cake pan that is 20cm X 20cm and line with baking paper (this will make it easier to take your brownies our when they’ve finished cooking).
  3. Cut butter and chocolate so they fit into a medium sized, heatproof bowl. Place the bowl on top of a saucepan filled with simmering water (don’t let the water touch the bowl otherwise it won’t work!). Combine the ingredients together until melted.
  4. Once melted, take the chocolate and butter mixture off the heat. Add the sugar gradually. Then wait until the mixture is slightly cooled before adding the eggs, one-by-one (you don’t want them to become scrambled eggs in the mixture).
  5. Add the cocoa power, flour and salt (you would also add in the vanilla extract if you were using it) and combine together.
  6. This is the point where you would add any other ingredients to spice up your brownies!
  7. Once combined, place batter into the lined pan making sure to spread the mixture evenly. Place into the oven and watch the magic happen.
  8. Bake for roughly 30 minutes (time will vary depending on oven temperature). You’ll also know it’s ready when you stick a skewer in the middle and moist crumbs are stuck to it.
  9. Let them cool completely before taking those bad boys out of the cake pan and cutting them into squares.
  10. Eat them before everyone else does.

Side note: Sorry I’ve been lacking with these blog posts, uni work has been non-stop lately so it’s been hard for me to upload. I hope you enjoy this delicious post!
