A chocolate brownie is a baked chocolate dessert. The 2 main kinds for brownies are cakey and the fudgy. In today’s video, I’ve shared the recipe for the perfect fudgy brownies. These are the fudgiest brownies you can ever think of, perfect crisp crackly top, super fudgy center, moist and gooey in all bites. You can add nuts or chocolate chunks to your brownies or serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream as per your preference.


  • 200 grams / 200 grams Semi-sweet dark chocolate
  • ½ cup / 113.5 g Butter 1/2 ((115 grams))
  • 1 cup / 200 g Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup / 110 g Brown sugar
  • 3 medium size / 3 medium size Eggs
  • ¼ tsp / ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp / 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • ½ cup / 62.5 g All-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup / 21.5 g Cocoa powder


  • First, grease a 7×7-inch dark metal pan with melted butter and line with parchment paper, leaving overhang on all sides.
  • Then preheat your oven at 350℉ (180℃).
  • Now take a little water in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer.
  • In the meantime cut the chocolate into small pieces and place them in a heat resistant bowl.
  • Now place the bowl on top of the simmering water making sure that the bottom of the bowl isn’t touching the water.
  • Then add 1/2 cup of butter to the bowl.
  • Now whisk the chocolate and the butter together until melts.
  • After the chocolate completely melts and becomes smooth, take it off the heat and let it cool.
  • In the meantime, in a separate bowl, take both the sugar.
  • Now add 1 egg at a time and mix properly using a hand whisk.
  • When the mixture is a little creamy add the salt, the vanilla essence, and the cooled chocolate and butter mixture.
  • Mix everything well. The batter will have a thicker consistency.
  • Finally, sift the flour and the cocoa powder into the bowl and carefully fold them into the mixture using a spatula.
  • Now pour the batter into the prepared baking pan then gently shake and tap the tin couple of times to spread the batter evenly.
  • Bake it in preheated oven for about 30 minutes.
  • When your brownie is baked take it out of the oven and let it cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Now slice them into 9 squares and enjoy your warm fudgy brownies.

You can also make these brownies without an oven. For that preheat a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat with a small rack or stand inside for about 15 minutes. Then place the baking pan on top of the stand inside the pan, cover and bake on medium-low heat for about 35-40 minutes.

    As my family loves brownies, I have tried out different recipes that I have found online, youtube etc. However, this is by far the best recipe that my family enjoy tremendously. It has the rich, dense cocoa flavour that taste even better when you eat it cold. As I try to bake a healthier version, I only use 1/3 cup of brown sugar, totally omit the white sugar. I used 70% dark chocolate with special dark cocoa powder from Hershey. So the end results is a very velvety, fudgy brownie. I used a 8×8 pan, which gives me 25 square brownies, each top up with a salted glazed whole pecan.

    • I’ve wondered the same thing but would you still use cocoa powder or substitute it with toasted milk powder to stay closer to a white chocolate brownie? What do you think?

    a.1 cup granulated sugar (200g) + 1 Tablespoon unsulphured molasses increase to 2 Tablespoons of molasses if you would like to make dark brown sugar.
    b.Use ¾ cup of honey for every 1 cup of brown sugar. If there’s other liquid in your recipe, lessen it by 3 to 4 tablespoons per 1 cup substitution. If there isn’t any additional liquid, add 1 extra tablespoon of flour per ¼ cup of honey.
    c. make your own brown sugar using a combination of white sugar and liquid sweetener. Try maple syrup, agave nectar, or honey, and follow the same ratio as above.
