World's best brownie recipe


World's best brownie recipe

Even though I have the tendency to hyperbolize for a dramatic effect, I really mean it when I say that these are the best brownies. Everyone loves them.

If you want to watch me make them - I have a video up on YouTube

P.S. The Ingredients are measured out for a small breat tray. I find it easier to make it in this. If you are going to use a normal tray - 20h30cm, make sure to use double the amounts below!

Ако поначало харесвате по-сладки неща – сложете повече захар. Аз слагам по-малко, защото така предпочитаме вкъщи.

120g melted and cooled butter

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

100g white sugar

50g brown sugar (the darker - the less sweet it will be)

2 large eggs at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

65g white flour

50g cocoa

A little bit of salt


Big wooden spoon

Bread tray (again - if you are using a regular one, double the amounts!)

Optional: 100g of chocolate (cut into chuncks) or nuts


  1. Warm up the oven to 175°C without the fan. 
  2. Prep your tray with oil and baking paper. 
  3. Mix the melted butter, oil and sugars in a big bowl and whisk them well. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract. Whisk well until the mixture turn lighter in colour.
  4. Sieve the flour, cocoa and salt. Start to gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ones, doing your best not to stir. Stop once they have mixed. Do not overmix your batter as that will affect your brownie texture.
  5. Optional: You can fold most of the chocolate or nuts, if you are going to add those. Do. Not. Stir. 
  6. Pour the mix into your tray and add the rest of the chocolate/nuts. 
  7. Bake for 25-30 mint for a fudgier center to 35-40 for fully baked. 
  8. Once you take it out of the oven, let your brownie cool in the tray for 10-15 mins. Keep in mind that your brownie will continue to bake in the hot tray. If you are looking for a fugdier texture - a toothpix should come out dirty. 
  9. Take it out of the tray and let it cool to room temperature. Cut and serve. 

Store up to 3 days at room temperature or up to 5 days in the fridge.
