Easy One Bowl Cocoa Brownies with a crinkly top and a soft, cakey centre.


  • 170 grams (3/4 cup) butter, melted
  • 200 grams (1 cup) caster sugar or granulated sugar
  • 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 40 grams (1/2 cup) cocoa powder, sifted
  • 70 grams (1/2 cup) plain flour or all purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75 grams (1/2 cup) chocolate chips, optional


  1. Preheat 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.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter, sugars and vanilla and whisk together. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each one.
  3. Add cocoa powder, flour and salt. Whisk well until you have a thick and creamy chocolate brownie batter. Stir through chocolate chips, if using.
  4. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared tin and place in the oven. Bake brownies for approximately 25-30 minutes or until they no longer wobble in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Cooking time: The baking time will affect the texture of the brownies. Try not to over bake them to ensure they are still a little fudgy in the centre.
