Cupboard Brownies

If you're like me and get those unexpected chocolate cravings then, this is the recipe for you! It's no fuss, all flavor and everything you need is in your cupboard. *Tip: I highly recommend using good quality baking chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder. I always stock up on Scharffenberger, Guittard and Ghirardelli chocolate whenever I go to my local market. This recipe is versatile and you could mix in nuts, chocolate chunks or candies.




Have a chocolate craving? Here's the recipe!

Cupboard Brownies
You'll need:
1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch salt
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Melt the butter over low heat in a medium-sized saucepan.
When it's melted, add the sugar, stirring with a wooden spoon.
Whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and pinch of salt, and then stir into the pan; when mixed remove from the heat.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the vanilla extract and then mix into the brownie mixture in the pan.

Stir in the chocolate chips and quickly pour and scrape into a foil-lined baking pan, spreading the mixture with a spatula, and cook in the preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Transfer the pan to a rack to cool a little before cutting.
