  • 2oz (1/4 Cup) Water
  • 1oz (2 Tbsp) Unsalted Butter
  • 250 Grams(1 1/4 cups) Granulated Sugar
  • 90 Grams (Scant Cup) Bensdorp Dutch Cocoa Powder
  • 3oz (scant 1/3 cup) Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Large Egg Yolk and 1 Large Egg, at room temp.
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch/ Cornflour
  • 60 Grams (scant 1/2 cup) All-Purpose/ Plain Flour
  • 4oz Chocolate (chips, chunks, or bars chopped)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F/180C and line a 9X9 or 8X8 square pan with foil and grease heavily.
  2. In a large pot add the water, butter, sugar, and cocoa powder. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes until it is all combined together, the mixture will look weird and not liquidy enough, that is fine. Take off the heat and add the oil and vanilla extract. The oil may not look like it is combining evenly with the chocolate mixture, that's is fine just mix a few times.
  3. Take off of the heat, let sit for 5 minutes then add the egg and egg yolk. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add the baking powder, salt, cornstarch, and mix to combine. Gently add the flour and chocolate chips by using a spatula to fold until just combined, just until no flour streaks remain. Do not over mix, this will affect the end product.
  5. I use a medium cookie scoop to divide the batter into 20 mini muffin baking cavities. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Everyone’s oven is different, for me, the brownies always bake right around the 19-minute mark but I would start checking at 17 minutes for your oven. Don't overbake the brownies. You want a toothpick in the center to come out with moist crumbs, not completely dry. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely. 
  6. Store in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 4 days.


Freezing Instructions: Brownies are great for freezing. Once the brownie bites have completely cooled place them on a plate or sheet in a single layer not touching and place in the freezer for an hour or two to flash freeze. After the brownies are hardened/frozen transfer them to a freezer-safe container. Then when you fancy a brownie bite take one out at a time and let it thaw on the counter for about an hour.
