Best Fudgy Cocoa Brownies


These were sooo good! I even used organic pure cane sugar and they turned out amazing! I set the timer for 25 min and when I checked them they seemed kinda jiggly in the middle so I set the timer for 2 min longer. After eating them I think I will stick with the 25 min. After they cool they aren’t jiggly at all.


    ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
    1 tablespoon cooking oil (olive oil or coconut oil are fine)
    1⅛ cup superfine sugar (caster sugar)*
    2 large eggs
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    ½ cup all purpose | plain flour
    ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    ¼ teaspoon salt


    Preheat oven to 175°C | 350°F.
    Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking oil spray. Line with parchment paper (or baking paper); set aside.
    Combine melted butter, oil and sugar together in a mediumn-sized bowl. Whisk well for about a minute. Add the eggs and vanilla; beat until lighter in colour (another minute).
    Add flour, cocoa powder and salt, gently stirring the dry ingredients through the wet, until JUST combined (do NOT over beat as doing so well affect the texture of your brownies).
    Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top out evenly.
    Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the centre of the brownies in the pan no longer jiggles and is just set to the touch (the brownies will keep baking in the hot pan out of the oven). If testing with a toothpick, the toothpick should come out dirty for fudge-textured brownies.
    Remove and allow to cool to room temperature before slicing into 16 brownies.

*Regular white, granulated, sugar can be used if you can't find caster sugar
1. Whisk your butter and sugar really well.
2. Beat in your eggs for a good minute. This step is crucial for that crackly top
3. Do NOT over beat your batter once the flour and cocoa powder are added. THAT creates air pockets in the batter which will give you cake-like textured brownies.
4. Do NOT over bake them! I like mine at exactly 25 minutes. You can go a little bit over if you like them set a bit more, but I don't recommend it if you're looking for the fudgiest brownies in this lifetime.
