Sometimes you need something chocolatey, and you need it at that very moment in time. Luckily, Chocolate Chunk Brownies take very, very little time to whip up.
I tend to enjoy my brownies fudgey (read: undercooked) but I was baking to share with others when I made these chocolate chunk brownies so I opted for a safer type: cake-like brownies. The only thing that truly separates these brownies from a chocolate cake is the tighter and richer crumb; plus the dense texture.
They aren’t my preferred gooey mess but they are still tasty!
- 175 g of butter, cubed
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 175 g of chocolate, chopped into chunks (I used Green & Blacks)
- Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) and line a baking dish with parchment paper.
- Beat together your butter, sugar and vanilla. Then mix in the eggs one at a time. Once that's all been thoroughly incorporated, stir in all your dry ingredients. Once the batter has been brought together, fold in your chocolate chunks.
- Your batter will be very thick. Spread it evenly in your baking dish and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until the sides of the brownie begin to pull away from the dish. Then cut and serve!
Are you a brownie with a glass of milk, cup of tea or cup of coffee person?
