It was really yum I loved this recipe so much!! I will use this recipe again as it is so yum and easy to make !!

I don't know why it turned out like a cake

wow wow wow!!!!!

The actual brownie is very yummy but I found that if you leave it in the oven for the full 25 minutes then it turns into more of a cake. The next time I made it I only left it in the oven for 15ish minutes and it came out gooey but semi firm and was perfect. Will definitely make again.

Hi this was a total success! I will definitely be making more in the future! :)
P.S. it even turned out like in the picture thanks so much!

I recently found this recipe, and I've been making them since! They're easy quick and you can easily whip up in 30 minutes. This is definitely my go-to recipe. Delicious sweet treats perfect for parties and great for any occasion! I definitely give you three stars! But just a question they're so sweet couldn't you put in a little less sugar?
CHELSEA: Hi there, if you find the brownies too sweet you could remove a little of the sugar (approx. 1/4 cup) without affecting the texture too much.

This is too much of a cake, this may be the most disgusting food I have ever tasted

disgusting!!!!

More of a cake then a brownie but still good.

great

i love this recipe it is good for taking to your friends but it does not turn out exactly as the photo but it is still yum mmmmmmm :) .

The brownie did not come out gooie like the picture
Disappointed with the recipe !!

yehh.. beautiful and rich:)

I make mine in cupcake tins and add berries,
They are delicious!

Is it meant to be runny?CHELSEA:With 250g butter and 4 eggs it is expected for the mix to be runny giving that fudgy texture.

These were yummy. give it 5 stars yar.

Love it, easy to do with the kids

Was not the best.It was nothing like the picture.More like a cake than a brownie

This recipe was great worked really well

I love to bake it is my hobby

Tasted sooo good! Love how gooey they are and the crunch of chocolate on the outside!

It was quite dry and was more suit to be a dry cake than a fudgy brownie that the picture shows. Though it was very easy to make, and didn't taste that bad, I wouldn't recommend it unless you prefer cakey brownies over fudgy.

Definitely more of a cake recipe. Added vegetable oil (2 tablespoons) which helped

I loved it it is great

Nice and easy . Ill be using this site a lot more now that I know it's here.
Thank you

The recipe was really easy. Took about an hour total and turned out really well. Light, fluffy and cakey, just how I like them. However, different people have different brownie preference, and this recipe is MUCH more of a cakey brownie as opposed to the more fudgy type brownie.
One of the best recipes I've used though. Highly recommend!

It worked perfectly loved it I will be making it again DELICIOUS

It was pretty damn geeeewd

It was yummy

Came out quite dry and cake like.. the kids ate it but I won't be making again..

Just a chocolate cake recipe. Tasty but disappointing as was wanting brownies.

I'm not much of a baker but this was very easy to make.

Perfection! Absolutely delicious.

It was very easy and quick to make, although I would recommend keeping in oven for a bit longer because when I cut it up it hadn't baked through the middle properly, was very disappointed, didn't end up tasting great. But good if you want something to make really fast.

I love food, I will do anything for food.

Easy, tasty, and fast. I have no idea why this recipe have ONLY 4 stars.

It was so good! Thanks!

good recipe

Best Brownie recipe I've come across!!

Really great brownie. I would really recommend it with mashed banana.

This is my favourite brownie recipe, quite cake-y, super easy and everybody loves it. Cook a little longer and its like cake, a little shorter and it is more fudge. Perfect.

Was more like a cake than a brownie!!

Came out cafe quality. Thanks

I made it and it was very yummy!!!

This is my favourite BROWNIE recipe SO far.

Oh my brownieness! This recipe is beautiful; simple yet very effective! :-D

I think these are the best brownies I have ever tasted.

Unfortunately for us the end result was more of a cake than a brownie! Will need to try out some other recipes for a brownie.

Finally found a brownie recipe that gave a meringue type topping.

Baked 20mins then taken out of oven.

3/4 large block of whittakers creamy milk chocolate roughly chopped and added into mix gave this brownie decadent chunks of bliss when eaten later cooled

Every time I make brownies using this recipe they are delicious. I like to add chocolate chips because it makes the brownies extra dense and to die for. I have had a lot of brownies that are light and fluffy like chocolate cake but this recipe gets it just right.

It's not a brownie it's a cake. It was terrible.

This recipe helps me when having to bake for family gatherings, and is very tasty.

Delicious

so amazing

I love this recipe. Thank u!

Ok but too cakey - even when cooked for the shorter time of 20mins. Think I'll stick to my brownie recipe next time! ;)

Good as recipe was a bit like a cake but if you want a fudgey consistency, don't cook it as long. Mixed in some chocolate buttons and coconut oil and it was sweet as! Will definitely make again as it tastes good as a cake, brownie and just eating the batter. Chur Chelsea!

The brownie was really nice and it tasted beautiful, didn't look anything like the picture, having another go hopefully it looks a bit better.

Well I am 13 yrs old and I love to bake, and it was perfect. The only thing I could have done would of been add icing sugar on top, but other than that I loved it.

Great

Did not look anything like the picture. Looked more like a cake. Very disappointed.

I altered this recipe slightly to make a more gooey brownie. Like what you see in the photo provided by Chelsea. Instead of 1 ½ cups of sugar, I mixed in only 3/4 cup of sugar. Recipe also calls for 1 cup flour, I only added 3/4 cup of flour. I added 1 whole size 8 egg along with 2 egg yolks. Even though the recipe asks for 4 eggs. I also added a handful lot of choc buttons , both milk chocolate and white chocolate, for extra gooeyness :) Add whatever floats your boat.
As for all other ingredients and instructions, those remain the same.
NOTE: Do not over cook brownie. It will look under cooked in the centre and a bit wobbly...that's ok. Suppose to be that way. However if you are unsure then an extra 5 mins should be fine. Just keep your eye on it.
I made these changes after reading the reviews and noticed a lot of avid bakers had baked themselves a cake instead of a lovely brownie. I could have easily done the same hehe :) Having tried different recipes over the years and just experimenting, I hoped I had picked a few things up along the way so went ahead and tweaked things a wee bit. 3 stars to Chelsea. 4 ½ stars after tweak lol
Happy baking everyone!

Fabulous! Easy to make, even with a 7 year old trying to help. Deliciousness!

Makes more of a cake brownie hybrid. Nothing like the picture, very disappointed as I was hoping for something like the picture.

Best brownie I've made so nice and everyone loves them. Also so easy and quick.

Very nice, it turned out great love this, hahaha btw my name is chelsea too hehe xx

It taste great but is on the cakey sure and looks nothing like the picture.

I'm really disappointed with how it turned out it was basically a chocolate cake and did NOT taste like a brownie and looked nothing like the picture I'm very disappointed

This comes out like a normal chocolate cake which is dissapointing

terrible

It's delicious however I did tweak up the recipe. Instead of using white sugar I used 1 cup of brown sugar, 3 eggs instead of 4 and less flour . I preheated the oven 180 cooked it for 25 min . It was yummy and moreish!! I think if I tweaked it even more by adding less egg and butter maybe flour and add in choc buttons it would be a success as a more of a browny rather a cake.

Perfection in a bowl! Don't forget the vanilla ice cream ;)

This brownie is a firm favourite in our house and super easy to make.

I love this brownie recipe! It was easy to prepare, and tasted great!

This is not brownie, rather, a pretty average bland chocolate cake. Very disapointed. There is no way to recreate the brownie as shown in the picture with this recipe.

image description

YUM! I always use this recipe now as it's the best one I have found. We love gooey ones so I just cook for less and comes out perfect every time.

Just made this brownie and it is SO good. Dusted with a little icing sugar, also added 1/2 cup chocolate chunks into the mixture. Can't stop eating it.

Kia Ora. I am 14 years old and I love baking, especially for my friends!!!
I remember trying to look for the perfect brownie recipe to impress my mates and I had finally found it. They love the brownies and they always want me to make them. They loved them soo much, I had run out of ingredients when I was about to make some more.
You really have to try them, they are DIVINE!!!! I recommend using 1 cup of sugar because you don't really need the other half.
Please try them because I bet every single person who tries these brownies will have no ingredients left to make more :) (PS If you like gooey brownies, do not make these).

This is not a brownie but a cake. Nice but disappointing when you really wanted a brownie !

Brownie can be made gooey or cakey, very easy to make GF as well.

This brownie is amazing i will make this again!!!

It was a great recipe and everyone LOVED it.

This recipe is awesome , Even My fussy child will eat it and share it I'll definetely make it again. Thank you

Average chocolate cake, not a brownie. I don't know how these ingredients could have made a brownie like in the picture.

I halved the recipe and whipped it up for a rainy afternoon treat. The best part about this (apart from the taste) is that I had everything in my cupboard already - no need to traipse down to the dairy for chocolate drops or walnuts

It was delicious and i will definitely make it again

Very nice as a cake but not as a brownie. It has the flavour of a brownie but has the consistency of a cake. I prefer a more fudgy brownie, this one is fluffy

it was ok but is was like a cake

i love it kit sounded so good thats why i chose it

Just an average chocolate cake, not so much a brownie

image description

Loved this recipe, I used 1 cup of sugar instead of the recommended and added white chocolate buttons..my sisters colleagues enjoyed eating them as we all did..Many Thanks ; )

Was pretty yum, but it was definitely cakey and i would suggest making a different recipe with chocolate chips if you enjoy a brownie that is more dense :D

It's a nice moist ''cake' but not a 'chocolate brownie ' at all.
Use Chelsea brown sugar instead of white sugar add 3/4 cup of chocolate chips to receipe.
Yum!

Tastes ok, but agree with the reviewer that states this is cake, not brownie. Not dense and chewy like brownie, and like photo looks. Also tastes a bit "eggy"

You have 2 different recipes and this one was cake not brownie. And the taste was bland wasnt pleasant.

Absolutely adore this recipe. It was successful on my first try! My family loved it! I added in a cheeky bit of peanut butter too. It was really easy to follow for a person like me, who has no idea how to cook. Hahahaha. 10/10!!

This was such an amazing recipe, so easy and simple to make for family and friends, 10/10 for me, just marvelous!

We made these with 1 and 1/2 block of whitikers chocolate, 1 cup of cocoa and only 1 and a 1/2 cups of sugar instead of 3. It was amazing and the vanilla ice cream toped it off perfectly!! :)
