These fudgy brownies are scrumptiously thick, rich, chewy, and oh so chocolatey. The perfect brownies for dark chocolate lovers!

PIN IT FOR LATER!

Happy birthday to me! I’m celebrating with one of my all-time favourite recipes – fudgy brownies. You just can’t beat the classic recipes!

Thick and Chewy Brownies | Marsha's Baking Addiction

This is my favourite brownie recipe. These are thick, chewy, fudgy, and rich in flavour. These are a dark chocolate lover’s dream brownie! The batter comes together so easily and quickly, using melted butter to speed up the process. The batter is quite thick, and will need to be spread out in the prepared pan. Baked in 25 minutes, you can have deliciously warm brownies to devour share in under an hour!

These brownies will keep fresh stored in an airtight container for up to a week… but trust me, they won’t last that long.

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/4 sticks (140g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (250g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (75g) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, cold
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain/all-purpose flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line the bottom and sides of an 8x8" baking pan with aluminium foil, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the butter, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Stir in the vanilla extract, then mix in the eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each one. Fold in the flour until fully incorporated, beating until thick and shiny, about 40 - 50 strokes.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and spread out evenly. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into squares.

    if i’m going to like a brownie, it HAS to be chewy. those cakey ones are not for me, and i don’t like it if they’re too fudgy either. this is a happy medium! πŸ™‚

    Never have tried brownies with cornflour in them before – definitely curious to try the addition out to mine next time!

It’s true that great minds think alike. Haha. Love that yours are made with just a touch of cornflour. Is that the secret ingredient? πŸ˜‰ Great recipe, Marsha! Pinning, of course. xo

    When you say “cornflour”, is this the same as cornmeal?

    Hi Marsha,

    I’m coming back to this recipe. Out of all your brownie recipes, would you say this is the best one in terms of being full of chocolatey flavor? I had a brownie at work and I can’t get my mind off of it. It was delicious. LOL.

    Hope you’re doing well!
