First things first, I’m not a baker. I didn’t even know that you need all-purpose-flour to make brownies till three months back. Yes, that’s how unacquainted I was with baking or kitchen in general. But, I tried baking - for the first time ever - during the lockdown and was so impressed with the results that I decided to make a recipe video. Try this at home and I promise you won’t be disappointed.


Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup castor sugar

  • 1/2 cup melted butter

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • Dairy milk chocolate chunks

  • Chocolate chips

  • Gems (optional)

How to make homemade chocolate chip brownies:

  • In a medium-sized bowl, add brown sugar, white sugar and butter.

  • Mix it well.

  • Add 1/2 tsp salt and mix again.

  • Add one egg and vanilla essence and whisk until light and fluffy.

  • Sift all-purpose-flour and baking soda into the mixture and whisk until no flour is visible.

  • Add chocolate chunks (you can use any chocolate you like, I used dairy milk)

  • Transfer the mixture into the pan and grease it with butter.

  • Line the pan with parchment paper so it’s easier to remove and cut the brownies later. I didn’t have parchment paper so just used extra butter to grease the pan.

  • Add chocolate chips (just add extra chocolate chunks of your favourite chocolate if you don’t have chocolate chips at home). I also added gems for variety.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees.

  • Let the brownies cool for 10 minutes, slice and serve.
