Easy Chocolate Brownies

The day started so well with me baking a batch of brownies, but soon turned pear-shaped when Hubby phoned to say he had broken his leg!

Now for the next 6-8 weeks I will be his taxi and we will be in each others company 24-7 a bit scary after being together 35 years!

(I'm also playing nurse to Rosie our dog who had a fast growing lump removed from her nose by the Vet yesterday).

So back to the yummy brownies.  Here is the recipe:

  • 200ml Vegetable Oil
  • 125g Dark brown soft sugar
  • 125g Golden sugar
  • 100g Self Raising flour
  • 100g chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 60g Cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sodium Bicarbonate
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract


Pre-heat the oven to 180

Lightly oil (brush the base and sides) with Vegetable Oil and add a sheet of baking parchment to the base of a 8'x10" baking tray.

Put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat together.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes. (You'll notice the surface will have a few cracks in it.

Leave to cool then cut into approximately 12 pieces.
