Delicious Chocolate Brownies


Who doesn’t love a good Brownie? I always follow the same recipe, which was once given to me by a former teacher – probably around 20 years ago.
I haven’t made Brownies for quite a while and came across the recipe in my notes the other week…so it was finally time for a round of Brownies :).

The recipe is so easy, even children could make it, and it doesn’t need any fancy ingredients. Why don’t you give it a try on the weekend? I’ve written it down for you below :).


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
  • Mix the four ingredients below well together

145g butter, melted
155g sugar
2 eggs
1 egg yolk

  • add the following ingredients to the mix

70g creme fraiche
1tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
170g good quality melted chocolate
75g flour
80g chopped nuts

  • grease a brownie form and put the mixture in
  • bake for around 20 minutes or a bit longer until the brownies are baked but not dry!


I just had the idea that I might make them again in the next couple of weeks and add some wintery spices – that could be the perfect pre-christmas-treat :).

I’m glad I decided to make these again because they really are delicious and I also love to use old, hand-written recipes that are already full of stains and greasy finger prints. Do you have any of these hand-written notes that you use over and over again?

  1. I’m guilty of always making the same brownies, too. Over and over! But these look fabulous!
