Who Ordered Brownies?

Actually my little sous baker had been requesting these for quite some time, except I never had the courage to attempt something like this. I prefer cakes, cookies, jellies, and puffy things. A brownie is like a block of chocolate, well, almost.
Since she mentioned it again today, I gave her one chance to collect all the ingredients and if she was able to find it all in the pantry, then I'd attempt it. Doesn't it look decadent (above picture)? Those white bits are actually white choc bits, making this brownie a really chocolate-sugar filled treat. It's 2cm x 4 cm x 4cm, and we made about 16 pieces though the recipe calls for 10 pieces but one little piece was enough for even the sweet-tooth sous baker.

Chocolate Brownies
Makes 10-16

75 grams butter softened
1/2 cup baking cocoa (unsweetened)
2 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/3 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup white choc bits


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degree Celsius. Line a 9cm x 14cm x 3 cm (approx.) tin with baking paper.
  2. Melt butter and stir in baking cocoa, allow to cool slightly. Beat in eggs. Stir in sugar and vanilla.
  3. Sift flour and baking powder together. Add to mixture and stir thoroughly. Stir in white choc bits. Pour mixture into tin.
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until firm when pressed in centre. Leave in tin to cool for 20 minutes before removing. Allow to completely cool then cut into bars.
