  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter or cream
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or other nuts optional


  • Leave out butter until the butter becomes room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 175°C ( 350°F).
  • Grease an 9" x 9" (23cm x 23cm) square pan.
  • Whisk eggs until light in a medium sized bowl.
    Then add sugar, melted butter, and cocoa. Mix well.
  • Add flour, salt, baking powder, vanilla, and nuts.
    Mix well with rubber spatula.
    Pour into greased pan.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes in pre heated oven.
    To tell when brownies are done, use a toothpick, stick it into the center, and pull it out.

    The brownies need more time if there is wet batter on the toothpick.
    If there are a few moist crumbs on the toothpick, the brownies are done.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool down to room temperature.
    Remove the brownies from the pan and let them chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
    (chilled brownies are easier to cut).See Notes.
  • Cut the brownies into 20 pieces.
    Use a warm knife to cut, making sure to clean the blade after each cut for clean, neat edges.
