Mussahir, from Pakistan and living in Australia, sent in this fudgy brownie recipe. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you make?

I made fudgy brownies.


• 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons salted butter melted
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup melted milk chocolate chips
• 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 cup milk chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

Add melted butter into a large mixing bowl. Whisk in sugar by hand until smooth, 30 sec.

Add in eggs and vanilla extract.
Add melted chocolate until combined and smooth.

Use a rubber or wooden spatula to stir in flour, cocoa powder until combined. Stir in whole chocolate chips.

Line a metal 9×9 pan with parchment paper.

Pour into prepared pan and smooth out.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes and cool for 30 minutes before slicing.


Use room temperature eggs and don’t overbeat the eggs as this introduces too much air into the batter, causing the brownies to be more cake-like and less dense.


This recipe is quick and easy.
