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!

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.

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

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!! :)
