Delicious brownies with a fudge centre and crushed walnuts. They take less than 30 minutes to bake and are so yummy. The nuts are not entirely mandatory but I think it adds flavor to your brownies.

Tips for a great brownie

  • Sift the flour and cocoa powder for best results.
  • Beat the butter and sugar for at least 2 minutes. This gives the brownies the yummy crinkle top texture.
  • Avoid over-mixing the ingredients. Use a spatula wherever you can for brownie batters. Over-mixing it will turn it into a cake.
  • Check on your brownies around the 20-minute mark. A sign that your brownies are almost ready are when your kitchen smells like chocolate. I always bake my brownies for 25 minutes because keep in mind that the brownies will continue cooking in the baking tray after it comes out of the oven
  • When you take the brownie out of the oven, don’t cut into it right away. Let it cool so it can harden and you will have a easier time cutting through it.

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Pinch of table salt

Preheat the oven to 350F/175C.
Lightly grease a 13x9 inch pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving about 2 inches of excess paper to hang on the sides of the pan. This makes it easy to remove the brownie from the pan.
Using a hand or stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together for two minutes. This gives the crinkle top on the brownies.
Then whisk in the eggs and vanilla extract into the same bowl. 
Using only a spatula, fold in the sifted flour, baking powder, salt, chocolate chips, and sifted cocoa powder until just combined. Don't over-mix.
Pour this batter into the lined pan from step 2 and bake for 25 minutes.
Let the brownie cool on a wire rack then cut into your desired squares.
Serve with ice cream or syrup of your choice.
