Sweet, Sweeter, Brownies!

Oookay, I know… it’s Monday already. But to defend myself, I started work really early on Sunday and had to work overtime cause there was just so much to do. That however didn’t keep me from preparing a delicious breakfast for myself. Just had to get up a little earlier 😉

The recipe is from Stephanie’s beautiful blog A Modern Christian Woman. I really enjoy her posts about cooking from scratch and on a budget so be sure to check it out yourself.

My craving for chocolate seems extremely intensified those last couple of days, so what better than to whip up a batch of these?

Dense, sweet, soft and chocolateyyy. Oh and of course incredibly easy to make.

Back to Basics Brownies

{recipe adapted from A Modern Christian Woman}

1 stick butter

12 tablespoons cocoa powder

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 eggs or 4 flax eggs {4 tbsp ground flax seeds with 12 tbsp water}

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

Melt together butter, cocoa and oil until a thick paste. Combine with rest of the ingredients. If using flax eggs, add in a bit of milk or buttermilk for moisture or your dough will not be “brownie-like”. Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan lined with foil.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes until set.


I did feel a little guilty while indulging in them because they were so full of chocolate flavour 😉

Wishing you a beautiful week!

… from Berlin with Love,
