Baking with Bea - Brownies

 We do a lot of baking in our house, mainly due to the fact we have a lot of eggs to use up, as the chickens are back into laying now the weather has warmed up and we are getting 6 eggs a day.

I also like to make sweet treats so I know what is going into the kids, rather than shop bought. It also tends to be a lot cheaper.

Now Bea is a little older she loves to help out with baking and will get very excited when she sees the mason bowls come out.

Brownies are a firm favourite in the mini beast household and I tend to make them once a week.
So I thought I would share my go-to recipe with you all.

  • 2 cups granulated sugar,
  • 1 1/2 cups of plain flour,
  • 1 cup of melted unsalted butter,
  • 4 eggs,
  • 1/2 a cup of cocoa powder,
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract,
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder,
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt,
  • optional 1/2 walnuts.


  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees,
  • Melt the butter and put to one side to cool,
  • Mix together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder,
  • Add in the cooled melted butter and whisk,
  • Add in the eggs one and a time.
  • Mix until a smooth batter is formed,
  • Spread the batter into baking trays that have been lined with baking paper.
  • (I tend to use two round cake tins, as I have found they cook better this way.)
  • Place into the preheated oven for around 20-30 minutes,
  • Let them cool before cutting.

They should be nice and crispy on the outside and lovely and fudgy on the inside.
