Rich Chocolate Brownie

19 Aug

I remember a friend said once before – a good chocolate brownie is crispy outside and gooey inside. I can’t agree more on this!

This Anna Olson’s brownie recipe is a bit unusual and this is the reason that I wanted to try – it replaces butter with mayo. Have you ever thought about putting mayo in a cake before? No, I hadn’t! The result was pleasant – it was rich, soft and moist. I didn’t dust the brownie with icing sugar because I wanted it to look rustic and also to show you its crispy outside and gooey inside. 🙂

If you love chocolate and brownie then give it a try!

Rich chocolate brownie

  • 120g unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • ⅔ cup boiling water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 180 °C. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the chopped chocolate in a large bowl and pour boiling water overtop. Let the chocolate mixture sit one minute, then whisk to melt.
  3. Whisk in the sugar, then add the mayonnaise and then the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. With a wooden spoon or spatula, stir in the flour, cocoa powder and salt until evenly blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for about 30 minutes, until a tester inserted in the centre of the brownies comes out clean. Cool to room temperature.
