The case of the “OMFG” Brownies…

Yep, I said this many times while both making, and eating, these divine chocolatey, treats!

The first time was when I realised how much sugar and butter I was putting into my body….the next was when the mix became so thick I could barely mix it with my wooden spoon (it was VERY tar like!)…and finally, I exclaimed it multiple times whilst devouring the sweet, rich, mounds of chocolate goodness.

I have seriously never tasted anything like these brownies, that has not come from a box! I have also never had so much success in achieving a rich, gooey, brownie before. I took them to a BBQ on the weekend, and they were a hit! So, do you want the recipe?

Of course you do! And I am going to link you up baby!!!



You can find the recipe for “Good Ol’ Homemade Brownies” over at Buns In My Oven, and I DO suggest you have a go at baking them! Not only were they FAN>TAS>TIC!, but I really enjoyed the process of baking them. I will pop the recipe at the bottom of the post for you to read through, but first, my pics!!

Good Ol’ Homemade Brownies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.
  3. Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  4. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until well combined.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.

On that note, I think I might go bake a batch now, ready to have with vanilla ice cream after dinner tonight xx
