Brownies for the Win – Easy Recipe for Beginners


120 g butter
50 g 70% dark chocolate
2 large eggs
150 g castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
120 g cake wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
40 g Nestlé cocoa powder
For the sauce
1 cup Nestlé dessert and cooking cream
200 g 70% dark chocolate
To serve
3 tbsp Nestlé cocoa powder — for dusting
250 g strawberries


Preheat the oven to 160ºC and lightly grease a 20cm square baking tin and set aside.

Melt the butter and chocolate over a double boiler and stir until smooth. Allow to cool completely.

Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy and whisk into the chocolate mixture.

Sieve the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into the chocolate mixture and mix to combine. Do not over mix. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 – 40 minutes.

Make the sauce by combining the dessert cooking cream and chocolate in a small pot and over medium heat stir until the chocolate has melted. Remove and stir until smooth.

With a round cookie cutter, cut out the brownies and set on a serving plate, dust with cocoa powder, drizzle with the sauce and serve with strawberries, cream and ice cream if you desire.
