  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 11 TBSP cocoa just under 1 cup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1⅓ cups oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • chocolate chips optional topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour (sifted), cocoa (sifted), baking powder and salt. Mix and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs well. Add the sugar gradually and mix in the oil and vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. A spoon or spatula will do the trick.
  • Lightly spray a 9x13in (33 x 23cm) pan with oil and pour batter in. Option to sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips on the top before baking. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean.


  • Use a little less flour and ½ tsp of baking powder for more fudgier brownies.
  • This recipe can be halved for a 9x9 pan.
