One of my favourite bakes has got to be brownies, not just any type of brownies! The thick fudgey kind with molten chocolate bits inside.
These brownies are a breeze to make because its prepared in 1 bowl! That alone has got me doing hand stands around the kitchen with joy. I made these on Friday and everyone loved them! They’re exactly what a brownie should be, don’t believe me? Try for yourself.
240g butter, melted and cooled
30ml vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
15ml vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cake flour
1 cup good quality cocoa powder
200g roughly chopped chocolate or large chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Lightly grease an 20 x 30 cm baking pan with baking spray. Line with baking paper, set aside.
2. Combine melted butter, oil and sugars together in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk well to combine. Add the eggs and vanilla; beat until lighter in colour.
3. Sift in flour, cocoa powder and salt. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until JUST combined. Fold in 3/4 of the chocolate pieces.
4. Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top out evenly, and top with remaining chocolate pieces.
5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the centre of the brownies in the pan no longer jiggles and is just set to the touch (the brownies will keep baking in the hot pan out of the oven).
6. After 10 minutes, carefully remove them out of the pan and allow to cool to room temperature before slicing into 16 brownies.
