Brownies have to be one of the most loved baked good.
I would never argue with that. Ever. I’m just here to make the brownies.
Today I’m sharing a piece of brownie and fudge heaven. I firmly believe there are two kinds of brownies. There’s the chewy, cakey brownie and there’s the fudge brownie! Both have their strengths and weaknesses. I like different brownies depending on my mood!
There are many different ways of achieving your desired brownie. I like to break it down in the most basic way possible for myself, because ‘brownie science’ can be quite intricate.
Thick batters = cakey brownies
Thin batters = fudgy brownies
As you can see in the first image, I could have stopped there! However, I wanted these brownies to have a fudge kick. (The ‘kick’ is explained in the recipe below) I opted to add a special liquid ingredient to make the batter very thin, in fact, it can get drippy if you’re being clumsy like I always am!
I added some chocolate swirls too, they’re my new favourite thing right now!
You should end up with something like this:
You can see the lovely melted chocolate swirls too!
I’m guessing you want to see that recipe, right? Here goes!

All-Time Fudgiest Brownies
Here's a recipe for the fudgiest brownies ever!
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 150 g butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup instant coffee, hot
- 1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Line Tray with greaseproof paper
Combine flour, cocoa powder and baking powder
In a separate bowl, mix eggs, sugar and vanilla extract.
Melt the butter slightly if it's very hard then add it to the wet ingredients.
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry
Add coffee to the mixture you'll see it get considerably wetter. Don't panic, this is the fudgy goodness.
Pour the mixture into your lined tray. I used a small tray so it made two batches but it varies depending on the dish you use.
Put into the oven for 20 minutes. Check if the brownies are done towards the end of the time by poking them with a skewer to see if it comes out clean.
Allow to cool and cut into squares.
Serve with cream or ice-cream
If you want to try a different variation of this recipe, go coffee-less. You'll end up with a cakier brownie!
