Nigella’s Everyday Brownies Recipe / Best Chocolate Brownies Ever

“Brownies” Saying that name makes me happy...I love brownies,I love each letter of the word “Brownies”.. If I see any recipes named as Brownies,I will stare at that atleast for a few minutes (From this you get to know how much I love brownies)..

  34. Really yummy looking brownies!

  35. lovely recipe but I have a small doubt.How hot should the mix be when u add the eggs/ i did it while it was on the gas and they nearly turned to omlettes! should it be just warm or lil warm or straight off the gas?? Please revert

  36. @Annie you should not add eggs when the mixture is in flame,you should take it out of the flame and let it cool for 2-3 min.then add in your eggs so it wont scramble...Hope you got it..

  37. Hello Arthi,
    Firstly, Congratulations!! you are doing a amazing job!!!

    I hv a doubt regarding brownies, what flour do u use? maida or rice flour??

  38. @ReBOrn.. Thanks for your comment. i used regular All purpose flour / Maida

  39. Hi Aarthi, I am planning to do this Everyday brownies tomorrow. I have 2 doubts.
    1) CAN I SUBSTITUTE OIL IN THE PLACE OF BUTTER. If so, how much oil should I add?
    2)Will all other ingredient measurements remain the same if I add butter?
    Please reply at the earliest. Bye..... UmaRaghu/Poland

  40. @Anonymous

    yes you can use oil instead of butter,no the measurements remains same

  41. @Aarthi Thanks for ur Immediate reply. Please tell me HOW MUCH OIL I SHOULD USE?

  42. @Aarthi Thanks for ur Immediate reply. Please tell me HOW MUCH OIL I SHOULD USE?

  43. Hi Aarthi, Is 100ml of Oil enough for this cake measurement? Thanks for your immediate reply. UmaRaghu/Poland

  44. hi Aarthi,

    thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe..

  45. Thank you for the recipe the picture looks perfect :):)
    Very good instructions too, easy to follow

  46. Hi Arthi, Can I make this in a cooker or pressure pan? If yes could suggest for how long? thanks.

  47. @Anjali NO you cannot. I have never tried it

  48. Hi Aarti, Happy Deepavali!. Can I make this brownie in microwave? If yes for how long?

  49. @anamikaIf you have convection/Baking mode in your microwave, you could make this at the same temp and time mentioned. If you have normal microwave then you could not make it

  50. Brownie looks so moist and perfect.....!!!

  51. I tried making this in the microwave oven, the top part was cooked but the bottom was all gooey. where did I go wrong?

  52. @AnonymousDid u bake it in convection oven, you should have cooked it longer, so the bottom would have cooked

  53. hii....can we substitute egg in dis recipe?
    if yes, by what

  54. Hi Aarthi,u said to switch off the heat when adding cocoa right. But am I suppose to switch on the heat again after adding it? Pls do reply. I am waiting for ur reply :)

  55. @AnonymousNO you dont need to switch on the heat again

  56. Instead of eggs can I add yogurt ...?

  57. Hi arthi

  59. Hello Arthi
    I tried your chocolate plum cake 5 mins recipe of microwave and it turned out pretty well except that it was trifle dry ...can you tell me how to rectify that and in this browni recipe you have used baking soda not powder is that correct???plz ans

  60. @Dr AfshanJust brush it with some sugar syrup to keep it moist. And this recipe calls for baking soda.

  61. Hi aarthi I live ur recipes and ur blog a lot...In this recipe u have used milk chocolate chopped into pieces right...can I use dairy milk chocolate for that or wat kind of chocolate do I need to buy from the store...thanks in advance..

  62. Hii..did u cover d tin while baking

  63. Awesome recipe! I just baked a batch and they are scrumptious!

  64. Brownies came out perfect. Was wondering if u have tried replacing butter with oil completely of maybe half n half with butter. It gets hard in winters

  65. is baking soda necessary? can i use baking pwdr instead

  66. Hey this recipe is very good but can i use fresh milk in this recipe or you have any alternative with egg. I am vegetarian and i cant used egg in it.
    Thank for sharing

    1. Not sure about egg sub in this recipe

  67. Can I use salted butter for this brownie recipe...

    1. Salted butter will make it too salty

  68. Can u pls give butter in terms of cup measurements

  69. Hey.. can I substitute wheat flour instead maida?

  70. Can i use oil instead of butter ?.
    If yes then what I oil measurement?
