The Best Fudgy Brownies Recipe by Tasty

9 servings

total time


  • 226g good-quality chocolate, semi-sweet

  • 12 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1 ¼ cups sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 20 cm square baking dish with parchment paper.

  2. Chop the chocolate into chunks. Melt half of the chocolate in the microwave in 20-second intervals, saving the other half for later.

  3. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer, then beat in the eggs and vanilla for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture becomes fluffy and light in color.

  4. Whisk in the melted chocolate (make sure it's not too hot or else the eggs will cook), then sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Fold to incorporate the dry ingredients, being careful not to overmix as this will cause the brownies to be more cake-like in texture.

  5. Fold in the chocolate chunks, then transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish.

  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how fudgy you like your brownies, then cool completely.

  7. Slice, then serve with a nice cold glass of milk!
