My all-time favourite brownies recipe

My all time favourite brownies recipe - Ever-changing Life of a MumThe wait is over. Here is my family’s all time favourite brownies recipe. It’s a recipe I return to time and time again as the whole family loves it and it certainly doesn’t last long in the pantry!

I have posted images of these brownies several times on my blog’s Facebook and Instagram pages and each time I get asked for the recipe, so here it is.

I originally found this recipe on I have adapted it slightly as I like to use milk chocolate and add a little more chocolate than in the original recipe (naughty I know!). I also choose to melt the ingredients in my microwave rather than on the stove to save some time.

The best thing is that this recipe takes next to no time to put together – in fact, it takes longer to cook than it does to pull out the ingredients and mix it all together!


220-250g block of milk chocolate
200g butter
5 eggs (3 whole, 2 yolks) – since posting this recipe, I have also tried using 4 whole eggs and it works just as well
1 1/4 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder


  1. Preheat oven to 160C degrees.
  2. Spray a slice tin with oil and line with baking paper allowing the sides to overhang
  3. Place chocolate and butter into a microwave-proof bowl and melt in the microwave. Check every now and then as it melts, using a metal spoon to stir.
  4. While this is melting, combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
  5. Whisk eggs in a jug.
  6. Once butter and chocolate mixture has melted, allow it to cool slightly then add in the eggs. Stir to combine – it will thicken slightly.
  7. Add the chocolate and egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don’t over stir as this can make the brownies tough.
  8. Pour into prepared pan and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes.
  9. Allow to completely cool in the pan. Remove from pan and slice into portions.
  10. Enjoy!
