How to make Fudgy Nutella Brownies

I am a huuuggeeee Brownies lover! Yes! I  LOVE BROWNIES. So at any point I get, I try to make them experimenting it with other flavors and then sharing the end result with my family – they are my trusted tasters! lol.

I have received countless requests for my recipe for fudgy nutella brownies so I’ve decided to share it here so it is available at all times. It is not a complicated dessert/snack at all. Very easy to make BUT your measuring of the ingredients determines the outcome!

Ingredients:
2 eggs
3/4 cup all purpose flour (soft flour)
2 tbsp cocoa powder (I prefer bitter cocoa)
1 cup granulated sugar (I use brown sugar)
1 1/2 cup chocolate (I use Kingsbite chocolate. I melt 1 cup and just break the remaining into tiny pieces)
5 tbsp Nutella (You can put in just as much as you like)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup melted salted butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to gas mark 4 (350 degrees F/ 177 degrees C). Line your baking pan with parchment paper (a.k.a tracing paper)
  2. Pour melted butter into a large mixing bowl. Whisk in your sugar by hand or machine until smooth
  3. Crack in your eggs and vanilla extract and whisk it for about a minute or until its well mixed.
  4. Whisk in your melted chocolate and 3 tbsp Nutella until combined and smooth
  5. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the flour, cocoa powder and salt until combined
  6. Stir in the remaining chocolate pieces
  7. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and smooth it out.
  8. Bake in your preheated oven for about 30 mins. ( stick a toothpick in it after 30 mins. If it comes out dry and not wet, your brownie is ready!)
  9. Let it cool in the pan for another 30 mins or whenever it is cool before slicing it up!

Bonus tips:

  • Here is a link to the oven temperature conversion whenever you come across a recipe and you’re confused about the temp settings
  • Grease your pan even when you line it with parchment paper
  • Visit this link to find out what you’ve been doing wrong when baking brownies!

Now that I have promised to make brownies for my friends, I better head off to start preparing the batches!

Tag me when you make your brownies! I’d love to see how it looks and also hear from you on how it tastes!

With love

Let’s Bake!

I have actively started baking. What I mean by that is I’ve decided to give my mom mini heart attacks when she hears unusual sounds from the kitchen. Lol!

Why did it take soo long for me to get here!? Baking is absolutely fun! I almost always forget all the 1001 problems I have. The only downside is being on your feet for long. But once you get a hang of it, you don’t even feel tired. Ok…maybe…just maybe someone is getting old. 😐

The first thing I decided to try my hands on was meat pies. Why did i do this? It looked pretty easy if you ask. I had also seen one of my fav spice queens, EssieSpice prepare it live on her Insta stories and damn, it looked both easy and cool. So yours truly decided to try her hands on it. My first attempt was a disaster. Hahah. It tasted like bread. My mom had a good laugh but I didn’t let that get to me. I made sure she ate it. Lol. Cos after all nothing goes to waste in her house. ☺ After a couple of attempts..i mastered it and the taste and texture was superbo!

I then decided to try my hands on something I thought was complicated. Lol. I’m a “throw me a challenge” kind of girl. Scratch that … I’m a “bake something exciting” kind of girl. Lol.

I had been to a friend’s house and as usual, the flair and simplicity of how she baked her brownies gave me the kick that I could even bake ’em and make them look more exciting. So I checked up Pinterest recipes on how to make brownies and gosh I got soo many recipes. That alone was the beginning of my problems. I spent about 2 hours glossing through recipes and telling myself I’d beat that…only to try the first brownie and dump them quietly into the bin outside my house for the unnecessary laughter and teasing that my mother would have rained on me. My next couple of attempts were encouraging. At least I could eat it and even share some with my colleagues at work to taste and give me their opinions.

I’m happy to say I’ve progressed and might even start selling my awesome delicious brownies. You ain’t getting it for free this time. Lol. Even my mother will have to pay before enjoying. Hahaha

Give it a try. Baking is for everybody. Just get your measurements right. Check Youtube for tutorials or Pinterest. Experiment but make sure its edible.

What will you bake today?
