Walnut Brownie


  • 115 grams unsalted butter
  • 115 grams bitter chocolate
  • 115 grams dark chocolate
  • 200 grams brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 40 grams plain flour
  • 150 grams coarsely chopped walnuts


  1. pre-heat the oven to 160C
  2. Line the base and sides of a 20cm square tin and line with baking paper
  3. Melt the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water or in the microwave on a low heat
  4. Once melted, stir to blend the butter and chocolate together, then add the sugar, salt and vanilla
  5. Beat the eggs one at a time, then beat in the flour and half the walnuts
  6. When the batter is smooth, pour into the tin, sprinkle over the remaining pecans and bake for 35 – 40 minutes
  7. Cool in the tin for at least 20 minutes. Lift the baking paper and transfer the brownies to a chopping board
  8. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container for three to four days

If you don’t like walnuts, you can subsitute it for pecans or leave the nuts out altogether. Either way, it’s very chocolately and fudge like. Yum!

I noticed today that Donna Hay has a line of packet cake mixes. They are pricey at around the $15 mark… but the shop assistant tells me they are the best brownies she has ever eaten. Plus they are called Molten Brownies… anything with Molten in the title promises gooey goodness!

I dare you to try them… plus that would save me all the kilojoules. 😉

A challenge i am willing to take! It sounds awesome, i’ll let you know how i go 😀
