Brownies for everybody! 👊🏻
Here are my easy peasy, super fudgy, downright irresistible, double chocolate, gluten free BROWNIES! Outrageously gooey, spectacularly sweet and a cinch to make.
What more could you want in life? These chocolate fudge brownies are a total lifesaver.
I often describe myself to others as a traditional baker. I like to bake with butter and flour and sugar. I don’t deal well with fads or substitutes, even if they do taste exactly the same.
I like my baked goods how they’ve were baked back in the old days. With fat and sugar and lots and lots of love.
I can’t ignore the fact though, that food intolerances are becoming more and more common and I still want to be able to make dessert for my celiac friends and family.
So while gluten free baking is not my strong suit, I wanted to learn how to make a mean gluten free brownie. One that both you and I could have up our sleeve in case we need to bake something gluten free stat.
So the question is, can you make a delicious brownie using gluten-free flour? Yes. You. Can.
And this is what it looks like 👇🏻 Isn’t she pretty?
This easy fudgy gluten free brownie has ALL the brownie magic. Crinkly top – check. Chewy edges – check. Gooey middle – check, check, check.
This is an easy mix and stir recipe using cocoa powder as the base. When I was recipe testing, I discovered that gluten free flour isn’t as porous as regular flour, so making a brownie with a melted chocolate base resulted in a brownie that was too wet. Switching to cocoa powder was perfect.
I then loaded the batter with chunky chocolate chips for a little extra chocolate magic. All in all, this brownie is delicious and you can’t even tell she’s gluten free! #missionaccomplished
Easy gluten free chocolate brownies with a crinkly top and gooey middle.
- 170 grams (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
- 200 grams (1 cup) caster sugar
- 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 40 grams (1/2 cup) cocoa powder
- 70 grams (1/2 cup) gluten free (all purpose) plain flour*
- 75 grams milk or dark chocolate chips*
- Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Grease and line an 8-inch square pan with baking or parchment paper, ensuring two sides overhang.
- In a large mixing bowl, add melted butter and sugars and gently whisk together. Add vanilla extract and stir.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring in-between, then sift in the cocoa powder and flour. Stir until just combined. Add chocolate chips.
- Pour the brownie batter in the prepared tin and place in the oven. Bake brownies for approximately 30-35 minutes or until they no longer wobble in the middle.
- Leave in tin and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. These brownies are quite fragile so if you can, transfer to the fridge for an hour before cutting into squares to serve.
*I’m aware that gluten free flour may vary country to country, the one I used was White Wings All Purpose Gluten Free flour.
*Check these are gluten free if you are making this for someone who is celiac.
