Homemade Brownie Recipe

Collection of homemade brownie recipes with ingredients and easy to follow instructions and photos:

Homemade Brownie Recipe

Each homemade brownie recipe below has been kindly supplied by chefs and food writers. They include little tips to make baking easier, instructions and alternative ingredients and serving suggestions. The photos were taken by us after baking each free brownie recipe.

The Drummer Boy

The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.

Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.

Brownies Recipe

This has been kindly provided by Stacy Adimando, the author of The Cookiepedia which collects her family and favourite cookie, cake and biscuits. We love her books with their charming introductions to each treat with tips to make cooking so much easier. For example Stacy says:

It's hard to imagine a time when brownies wouldn't be a hit, but there's something particularly special about them when they're made at home. Owed in part to a not shy helping of good baking cocoa. This version has the most satisfying chew, somewhere between a thick cookie and a piece of fudgy chocolate cake. They take a little longer than most cookies to bake, but the batter is almost unbotchable. And, hello, are they not worth the wait?

Ingredients for Brownies

When reading the ingredients for brownies in Cookipedia Stacy writes using the American measuring system of cups. We have included the grams we used to make the homemade brownies pictured on this page. This will make just over one dozen.

180g unsalted butter

120g all-purpose flour

50g cocoa powder

Three quarters of a teaspoon of baking powder

Half a teaspoon of salt

250g of sugar

3 eggs

One and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract


How To Make Brownies

Preheat the oven to 350F

Heat the butter until it is just melted and set it aside. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and the salt in a bowl and set aside.

Pour the butter into the sugar and beat until the mixture looks smooth and thick.

Slowly add in the flour mixture, about a third at a time, making sure that you beat the mixture after each addition to let the dry ingredients mix. When it starts to look like brownie batter, you're done.

Grease a 9 inch square glass or metal baking pan and pour in the batter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside to cool and cut to size and shape.

When writing about how to make brownies Stacy gives a tip of layering a piece of parchment on top of the greased pan and grease the paper too to make easier removal.

Variations suggested in Cookiepedia include adding white chips into the finished batter. Stacy also suggests saving the last handful to sprinkle on the top just before baking.
