The time has come for me to share my favourite chocolate brownie recipe. This has been my staple brownie recipe for about 6 years now – it’s a winner every time, and it’s so simple that a toddler could make it. Enjoy!


1 cup sugar
½ cup margarine or butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2/3 cups all purpose flour
½ cup cocoa
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Heat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Mix sugar, margarine, vanilla and eggs. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8″)  greased/lined pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cut into 2 inch squares (makes 16 brownies). It’s a nice touch to sprinkle icing sugar over the brownies for serving. Delicious served hot with ice cream!
