My Favourite Chocolate Brownies


These Brownies are Just…. ummmm… I don’t have any word to explain them.
These brownies are just so moist and chocolaty even if you don’t add really chocolate to them, I could eat them all day. They are incredibly quick and easy to make, and you can add just about anything to them. The mayonnaise in the recipe just helps stop the cocoa in the brownies from drying them out, and you honestly can’t taste it at all.


  • 110g melted butter
  • 150-175g granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 60g self-raising flour
  • 30g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Milk to Mix (about 2.5 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp Mayo
  • 60g chopped walnuts, chocolate, hazelnuts, dried fruit, or anything else you want to mix into your brownie (optional)



  1. Mix together the melted butter and sugar until the sugar starts to dissolve.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla then beating well.
  3. In a large sieve, sift together the flour, cocoa and salt over the butter mixture beating well after every third of the flour added.
  4. Slowly mix in the milk and mayo then stir in your walnuts.
  5. Preheat your oven to GM4 – 180°C – 350°F
  6. Grease and Line a 20cm square tin.
  7. Pour your brownie mixture into the tin and back for 20-30 minutes until the edged are firm and the middle is still soft.
  8. Leave to cool for half an hour in the tin before turning out and cutting into squares.
  9. Serve with warm milk, or hot chocolate topped with marshmallows in front of a warm fire.
  10. Store for up to a week in an airtight container.


  • To add coffee into the brownie mixture heat up 2 tbsp of the milk and mix it together with 1.5tsp instant coffee until the coffee granules have dissolved then add to the brownie mixture.
  • To add peanut-butter to your brownies replace 3/4 of your butter for peanut-butter and melt along with the butter, follow the recipe as above.
