American Fudge Brownies - Recipe

So, the side-effect of leaving for Cape Town last week was that I got to visit my boyfriend and all I had to do was present at a GirlEng workshop (which, for a free flight, was completely worth it!)

And since I'm a good girlfriend and like to bake, I made him some DELISH chocolate brownies. And since I was in the creative mood, I took some pics so that you could see how to make chocolate brownies too (and this is probably the best chocolate brownie recipe in the whole WORLD!)

SO, the recipe for American Fudge Brownies (or just plain old Choc Brownies, if you prefer) goes something like this:


250 g margarine (lucky for me it's free!)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
8 T cocoa
1 cup flour
*you can also add some chopped up nuts

1. Melt the marge so it's soft (it doesn't have to be completely runny, just soft)

2. Cream the marge and sugar

3. Add the eggs and vanilla to the creamed mix and mix it some more, until all the eggs and vanilla is mixed in

4. Sift the flour, cocoa and salt (see below, it looks really pretty when you sift them together like I did!)

5. Slowly add the sifted ingredients (otherwise you just make a mess of flour/cocoa everywhere) to the creamed ingredients so that you end up with a mixture looking kind of like the image below

7. Put the mixture into a roasting pan (think mine was about a 12x30 cm roasting pan)

8. Bake up 180 degrees C for about half an hour (this is very dependant on oven type!)

9. When you take the brownies out, don't worry if it seems a little bit liquid (but if it's a lot liquid, leave in the oven for a while longer).

10. Let the brownies cool. Once they've cooled, cut them up and sprinkle icing sugar over the top (if you have some lying around) for an extra bit of yum.

And there you have it. Easy, yummy chocolate brownies!
