This CRAZY easy, rich and fudgy brownie recipe is one you need in your life! Made in just one bowl, there’s minimal pots to wash too. Indulgent, chocolatey & gooey… these are the kind of fudgy brownies we like to make!
A few years ago I went on a bit of a brownie mission. I wanted to find the most amazing brownie recipe and, consequently, made quite a few! It all ended with my Ultimate Chocolate Brownie recipe (which resulted in these epic Creme Egg brownies too – WIN!).
As amazing as they are, I think I may have topped it. This incredibly easy one bowl fudgy brownie recipe is SO ridiculously simple to make and yields the most decadent results! Seriously, you’d be out of your mind not to try this one.
Suffer from an intolerance or allergy? I’ve also conquered the fudgy vegan gluten free brownie recipe too and I’m super proud of it! (Well, it did take me 14 batches to perfect…) So if you need a free from version to impress your friends and family instead – you should absolutely check that out!
Here is what you need to make 9 large or 16 smaller bars.
(For a printer friendly version, see the recipe card at the end of this post)
Firstly, grease & line your baking tin with baking paper and set to one side. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C.
Next, add the butter (110g | 1/2 Cup) into a large bowl and break in the chocolate (110g | 3.9 oz). Melt in the microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring well between each time. Try not to overheat. Leave to one side for a few minutes to cool to room temperature.
Then, one at a time, beat in the eggs (2 in total). Mix very well until completely blended.
Next we need to add in the sugar (225g | 1 + 1/8 Cup) and give it a really good beating with a spatula or whisk. It should stop being really grainy and become quite smooth.
Time for some flavour! Stir through the vanilla (1 tsp) & salt (1/4 tsp) then sift in the flour (60g | 1/2 Cup) & cocoa powder (2 tbsp).
Now fold it all together with a spatula but don’t overdo it. Fold just until you can’t see anymore flour left in the batter.
Finally, pour your fudgy brownie batter into your prepared tin and smooth it out evenly.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. It will likely be a little crispy on top but fear not – there is lots of gorgeous chocolatey goo underneath!
Oh, you noticed the pegs? Yep, that’s what happens when you’re lazy and only line the base & 2 sides of your tin. The paper falls onto the brownie mid bake & creates those unsightly lines on the top. Oops!
Anyway! Time for the hard part. Allow to cool completely (be patient here and you’ll be rewarded!) before removing from the tin and slicing into 9 large or 16 smaller bars. Store in an airtight container (I prefer metal) at room temperature and consume within 5 days. Crunchy top, chewy edges & gooey middle. 100% gorgeous chocolate heaven! I’d say this one bowl fudgy brownie recipe was a bit of a winner wouldn’t you?
