Chocolate Brownies


  • 250 gr butter
  • 350 gr dark chocolate
  • 400 gr sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 250 gr flour
  • 300 gr walnuts roughly chopped
  • two pinch of salt


  1. give the butter and the chocolate in a pot and slowly melt them on low heat, till liquid
  2. take the pot from the fire, add the sugar and mix it
  3. test if mixture is not too hot, then add the eggs, give it a good stir
  4. then add salt, vanilla sugar and the flour, mix again
  5. last, add the roughly chopped walnuts, mix everything
  6. put the dough in a good greased cake tin and give the tray into the pre-heated oven on 180° C for about 40 minutes, make the toothpick text
  7. let it cool down, then cut it into squares


  • for a fodmap or gluten-free diet, take gluten-free flour it works perfect, and nobody will taste the difference
  • for a lactose free diet, take lactose free butter
  • if you serve the cake when still warm, cut the pieces a little bit bigger and serve it as a warm chocolate cake. Don’t forget the ice cream (vanilla, straciatella or walnut flavour) and the whipped cream, they just match perfectly to it.
  • If you are in no rush, let the cake cool down totally, if possible even over night , it’s then easier to cut nice squares.
  • the ingredients are calculated for a cake tin size 24*30cm
  • you can easely freeze the brownies, so each time you have unexpected guests you can defrost them in 20 minutes and can serve fresh home made cookies. I always have some for emergency reasons in my freezer.
