Hummingbird Chocolate Brownies

These brownies rock, they are super gooey and always come out incredible. They also just require mixing with a spoon and a little melting so no way you can mess up.

Makes 12

200g Dark chocolate roughly chopped
175g Unsalted butter cut into small pieces
325g Caster sugar
130g Plain flour
3 Eggs

Preheat the oven to 170˚C. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a big heatproof bowl over boiling water, making sure the bowl isn't touching the water.
When all melted take off the heat and stir in the sugar and then the flour, then the eggs one at a time until smooth.
Pour into a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake in the oven for 30 mins. They should have a slightly flaky top layer and be soft all the way through. I let them cool and then put them in the fridge because they are good cold but otherwise you can't go wrong if you serve them warm with ice cream.


  1. These chocolate brownies are always a wonderful gift for friends or family. It is a great alternative to the traditional brownie. It's more cake-like, contains nuts and is topped with chocolatey cream-cheese frosting. Thanks for sharing this loving post.
