easy brownie OR chocolate cake - 1 mixing bowl
There's always room in every home for a quick brownie or chocolate cake. This recipe is easy, does NOT require an electric mixer (less cleaning less stress)  and can be turned into a chocolate cake by simply adding bi-carb and baking powder. 

Take note this is not the kind of brownie that has a crispy glaze on its top. That requires a different recipe which generally involves melting baking chocolate. I this because of the lower sugar content . The family loves it just as much as the super sweet glazed option.

  • 125g butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup plain flour

*Add 1/2 tsp bi carb powder plus 1/2 tsp baking powder if you prefer a less dense, cake consistency.

1.Pre heat oven to 160 degrees C and line a medium (22cmx22cm) square baking dish with baking paper. I use a 20cm round for the cake version.

2. Sift the cocoa into a medium bowl. Melt the butter over low heat. When the butter is melted add to the cocoa in a steady stream, stirring with a metal fork as you go. Continue to whisk until smooth

3. Whisk the eggs and vanilla essence together. Add to the cocoa mixture in a steady stream, whisking with the fork as you go, until smooth.

4. Stir through the caster sugar until well combined.

5. Sift the flour (and baking powder +  bicarb  for cake ) and very gently fold in evenly and until just combined.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until firm to touch. Allow to cool in the tray before cutting and serving.
