I was a member of a choir. Probably the best thing that came out of my time singing, is this recipe for Brownies. On the last sing along for the year we all brought along a “plate”. An Australian way of saying bring some food to share with everyone, and one lady brought brownies. They were amazing! Melt in your mouth, delicious. Luckily, before I gave away my highly talented hobby as a singer, I was given the recipe.

I am sharing it with you as everyone has asked for the recipe over and over.

Chocolate Brownies

• 400 grams Milk or Dark Chocolate ( choose the best you can find, the highest cocoa value)

• 250 grams of unsalted butter

• 5 large eggs

• 1 cups of castor sugar

• 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence

• 1 cup of almond meal

• 200 grams of nuts (your choice) roasted in the oven till light brown. This is optional

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Prepare the baking tin with baking paper. Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave or over double boiler until runny. Stir in vanilla essence and set aside to cool a little. Beat eggs and sugar until thick and stir in the chocolate mixture. Add the almond meal and then hand stir in the nuts. (or you can just decorate the top of the brownie)When mixture is well combined spread into the baking pan and bake for almost 30 mins. (My oven is hot so I take them out after 25 mins) The surface should be flaky in appearance. Take from the oven and put in the fridge to cool.  Best left overnight Cut and serve when cooled.

There are lots of brownie recipes on the blog, just type Brownie into the search bar.


Good Luck. Jacqui G
