Quickest, Yummiest Chocolate Brownies Ever!


Quickest, Yummiest Chocolate Brownie Recipe Ever!

You don’t need any chocolate to make this recipe and it is wiped up in a minute plus baking time! I must confess that this one is based off one of my favourite cooks Donna Hay with slight FunkyForty tweaking – smile.


  • 250g butter (melted)
  • 1 + 1/3 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 + 1/4 cups brown fine sugar
  • 3/4 cups sifted cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Mix all ingredients together to form a smooth paste, then place in a lined 20cm square tin and bake at 170°C for 50 minutes.

Let the brownies cool right down before cutting into equal square portions.

Optional – sprinkle icing sugar on top for the final finishing touch! If you want to be truly decadent you might even try a layer of melted white chocolate on top – serve whilst the white chocolate layer is still warm (getting hungry as I write)…Enjoy!
