As a last minute Fourth of July addition following my visit to the USA this month (and well, any excuse for brownies really), I’ve decided to share my jaw-dropping, ground-breaking, all time favourite brownie recipe. Having (over) indulged in brownies on this trip and every trip to the USA, I’ve got a good feeling this recipe is up there with legendary brownie recipes.

Although I tend to find brownies all over the world through my travels, there just seems to be none that compare to those you find in America. Full of gooey goodness and all the fun stuff (these are most certainly NOT sugar free, gluten free or any of the fun stuff free), these are pure indulgence with every bite.

As such, I like to cut my brownies into bite size indulgences, giving me all the more reason to eat a few in one sitting and provide some sort of portion control (although control, especially self-control, has never been my strong suit).

Recipe Notes

While I like to measure my ingredients exactly (out of habit), you can use cup measurements for rough conversions as brownies are pretty forgiving.

Baking a couple of minutes less will result in a more gooey brownie (delicious served warm).

Serve with summer berries and double cream for ultimate indulgence!

    These look totally yummie! Do you know you can actually make vegan brownies as well? Just as gooey and mouth watering as yours look πŸ™‚ Nuts and coconut flakes are optional, but certainly adds to the experience in my opinion πŸ˜‰

    As you, I am a died in the wool brownie lover. These look like they will be amazing. I have one problem, I am diabetic. If I were to try these, small pieces (very small) would be my only option. Do you have any recipe’s designed for either low carb or diabetic diets? I also have a super power that limits my eating. I’m what my doctors call a super taster. I have very sensitive taste buds that make eating certain thing a problem. Would love to hear any suggestions you have.
