Mom’s Chocolate Brownies – Recipe

An easy brownie, that tastes great. Not too sweet with a great chocolate flavour. This brownie is great by itself, with ice cream, a glass of milk or with a cup of coffee or tea. Or watch me make it here.

Mom's Chocolate Brownies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Mom's Chocolate Brownies


  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 4 ounces dark/bitter chocolate
  • 1/2-3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Melt chocolate over low heat, using a double boiler or a glass bowl over a pot filled with simmering water. Make sure the water in the bottom pot is not touching the bottom of the bowl, containing the chocolate.
  2. When chocolate is melted or almost melted, add butter.
  3. Stir until butter is melted.
  4. Take off of heat.
  5. Make sure the chocolate/butter mixture is not piping hot. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  6. Add sugar, mix well.
  7. If it's hot set aside for 5-10 minutes before adding eggs.
  8. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix well.
  9. Add flour with baking powder & salt mixed to the above mixture.
  10. Bake in a greased and/or floured pan, at 350 F, for approximately 15 minutes. Oven times will vary. Check about 10 minutes into baking.
  11. Do not overbake, brownies will continue to bake for a few more minutes after they are out of the oven.
  12. I would pull them out around the 12-14 minute mark.
  13. If you use the toothpick test, it should be slightly wet.
  14. Cool in pan. Cut into bars & enjoy!


If using unsalted butter add 1/2 tsp salt, to flour & baking powder mixture

If using unsweetened chocolate add an extra 1/4-1/2 cup sugar.

If you like a sweeter brownie and 3/4 sugar instead of 1/2 cup. If using a frosting or sprinkling with powdered sugar, the 3/4 cup of sugar may be too sweet.

Using more cane sugar will result in a chewier brownie.

Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice.

I always use a lower oven temperature with baked goods, because they seem to turn out better. You can use 350 degrees but keep, as always a close eye so that the edges or tops do not over bake.
