The recipe for the ultimate thick and fudgy brownies with a shiny crackly crust. Learn the secret to creating the perfect brownie with the trademark cracked crust and rich, fudgy interior.


  • 250 g Unsalted butter, melted (1 cup)
  • 200 g Semisweet chocolate (7.50z)
  • 4 Eggs, room temperature
  • 360 g Caster sugar (1 1/2 cups)
  • 65 g Flour (1/2 cup)
  • 80 g Cocoa powder (1 cup),  dutch processed
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 125 g Walnuts, roughly chopped (1 cup), optional
  • Pinch of flakey salt, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F)
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a medium sized bowl over a hot water bath or in the microwave
  3. In a large bowl add the eggs and caster sugar, whisk until smooth
  4. Add the chocolate and butter mixture into the eggs, stirring until combined
  5. Using an electric beater, beat the eggs and chocolate until doubled in volume and paler in colour (this will take some time, but it is the trick to getting that beautiful shiny crust and finish)
  6. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt, mix until just combined
  7. Fold in the walnuts (optional)
  8. Pour into a brownie pan (8 x 8 inches) and bake for 25-30 minutes. A toothpick inserted should come out with a few gooey crumbs.
  9. Cool, sprinkle with flakey salt and cut into squares
