Classic & Triple Choc Brownies

Some of you who follow my blog regularly would know I recently returned from a whirlwind trip to the US and Canada. While away I became acquainted with the delicious brownie and while I wouldn't call myself a chocoholic, I do enjoy the odd chocolate treat - I mean who doesn't? So when my cousin in Canada whipped up a batch or two (actually it was three) I indulged with gusto!

A couple of week's while reminiscing and looking through my overseas pics I decided I would try and get my brownie on and came up with these versions: 

Dark chocolate or Triple Choc Brownies


  • 400g dark chocolate, chopped (note for triple choc I used 130g of dark, white & milk)
  • 280g butter, chopped
  • 2 cups (350g) brown sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cups (150g) sifted plain flour

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place 200grams of chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
Place the sugar, eggs and flour in a bowl. Add the chocolate mixture and mix until combined. Add the remaining chopped 200grams of chocolate and fold through mixture then pour into a rectangular shape tin (see below) lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 45minutes or until an inserted skewer withdraws clean. Allow to cool in the tin then slice. 

Serving suggestion: You can enjoy these hot or cold but I prefer them served warm with a dollop of cream.

Ready to eat!
