5 Minute Chocolate BrowniesAND they are so quick to whip up! As in, sooooo quick! You’ll go from getting your ingredients out of the cupboard to popping your brownie into the oven in 5 minutes flat (maybe even less if you’re superwoman!).

But don’t be tricked into thinking that something so basic and easy couldn’t possibly be that good. These are crazy good! They’re everything you want in a chocolate brownie… rich, decadent and moist. Yummity-yum-yum!

Once your brownie is cooked and cooled, you might like to sift a little bit of icing sugar over the top. Or you could go totally crazy and add some frosting and chopped up chocolates!! On the other hand, you can keep it totally simple and leave it as is. Whichever you choose, just know that you’re about to be eating the most ridiculously delicious brownie!!

    Made this for Bake off at work. Judges liked it. Won runner up. Just added few things like Coconut frosting and toasted Coconut on top.
    Thank you again

      Ohhh that sounds amazing!!!!

  2. Natalie says:

    Could I use SR Flour instead of plain? I’ve just ran out of plain flour!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Natalie, the plain flour keeps them moist and dense rather than cake-like. xx

  3. Lisa Parnell says:

    I halved the sugar and they came out rather rubbery. Will this be resolved if i increase it, and do as i’m told ;-)?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Lisa, hmm a rubbery texture in baking is usually a result of over mixing – but yes I’d also suggest using the full amount and seeing if that changes the texture.

    I want to add marshmallows and perhaps some nuts when should I add these? Xx

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi there, I’d fold them through right at the very end before pouring into the tin to cook. 🙂

    Can I double this recipe in the Thermomix? I have a TM5

    1. Lucy says:

      If it fits without going over the max line it should be fine!
