Best Ever Brownies

Brownies are a rich, decadent and purely hedonistic treat that always hit the spot when you’re craving something sweet. There are a million variations of this beloved dessert, but there’s one thing they all have in common. Brownies are always best served with a cup of Nerada tea.


  • 200 g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 250 g butter, chopped
  • 300 g brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 40 g cocoa powder
  • 180 g plain flour, sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 180 g milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (325ºF). Place the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
  2. Place the sugar, eggs, cocoa, flour, baking powder and milk chocolate chips in a bowl. Add the chocolate mixture and mix until combined. Pour into a 20cm-square slice tin lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 50 minutes or until an inserted skewer withdraws clean. Allow to cool slightly in the tin before slicing. Serve warm or cold. Makes 16 slices.
