Oh So Good Brownies! These chocolate brownies really are amazing! 

This delicious recipe has been generously shared by one of our Lovefoodies supporters, and a dear friend of mine, Gerda Rink.

Gerda has made her brownie recipe many times, and each time I have visited Gerda's house, she's always got a supply of her Brownies for sharing! I can tell you now, these are so addictive!

The tops are delicately crispy and then you bite into one and it's just full of brownie goodness! They're nice and chewy inside and rich with chocolate goodness. They really are 'Oh So Good'! 

For this brownie recipe, Gerda has added walnuts. I've made this recipe many times and swapped the walnuts for pecans, cashews, and a variety of other nuts over the years.

So feel free to make the recipe your own by adding whatever your favorite nuts are! 

Brownies are great for making to give away as gifts, particularly over the Christmas holidays. You can make up a few batches and wrap them in some festive bags or pop them in jars and give them as presents. After all, I think most people love brownies!

So after a year or so, I've managed to persuade Gerda to share her recipe, so here it is! Please enjoy our Oh So Good Brownies recipe!

Prep Time

10 minutes

Cook Time

25 - 30 minutes

Yield

24

You will need

8 x 8 (20 cm x 20 cm) pan

Please note, if you choose a larger pan, your brownies won't come out as high as Gerda's!

Ingredients

150 g / 1 cup walnuts
100 g / 2/3 cup dark BAKING chocolate
100 g 1/2 cup butter
325 g / 1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
125 g / 1 cup All Purpose / Plain Flour
2 Tablspoons Cocoa powder unsweetened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch salt

UPDATE: Please note as we are getting some questions about the dark chocolate, please try and use the DARK BAKING CHOCOLATE. It will say it on the packet it is for baking and can be found in the baking section of the shop. The cocoa content and fat content is better suited for baking!

Instructions

1. Grease and line your 8 inch square baking pan and preheat oven to 175 C / 325 F / Gas 3

2. Beat vanilla, sugar & eggs until light.

3. Melt butter & chocolate in the microwave in 20 second intervals until completely melted. Alternatively, you can melt in a bowl over hot water.

4. Combine flour, salt & cocoa powder and add to egg mixture.

5. Add chocolate & butter, mix well.

6. Break the walnuts with your fingers, I like mine quite chunky and without all the crumbs. Then spoon them into the batter.

7. Pour batter into the baking tin and bake for 30 - 40 minutes.

8. Allow them to cool on a rack and cut into squares after they have cooled.

If you try and cut them whilst they are still hot, they will be too gooey, and you can't cut them nice.

    I try this for sure because I love walnuts ?I put some pices of peppermint bar in my brownies and If you like me like the taste of peppermint,try it….. Happy holidays to you all. Irene

    1. That sounds like a lovely addition to the brownies Irene. I would never have thought to add peppermint candy. Thanks so much for writing in and letting us know, and a very Happy Christmas to you and your family too!

    1. Hi Anu,
      I would suggest you substitute the eggs for what you normally use when you are baking for your kiddies.
      I haven’t tried this recipe without eggs, so unfortunately I am unable to advise you properly for a sub which I know works!

  2. Oh dear GOD! I was trying to be good. I said that I would be good but now, now I have to make these and try them. Yum Yum YUM!

    1. Haha! Hi Tee! Well, my advice if you want to be good, is to freeze some of them then you won’t be able to eat them all at once (because once you start eating these you wont stop!!)
      Happy baking friend!

    1. Hi Pam,
      I have never used Chocolate Syrup with a batter before so I can’t say how it will turn out in the brownies. I imagine the syrup is not the same as the chocolate when it is melted and perhaps ‘stickier’? You can always try say have the recipe to see if it will work, or maybe wait until you can get hold of the baking chocolate as I would say the chocolate really is what makes these brownies so good.
      Please do let me know how they turn out if you try the recipe using syrup.

  3. How do I wait for them too COOL! That’s going to be the hardest part of all! So want to make these right now. May have to use pecans (as I have them here now) or no nuts so kiddos can take them to school! (nut free school!)

    1. haha!!! Patience is for sure what you need for them to cool Jen! You could split the batch and do half nuts and half without! ….or make TWO batches :)
      Please enjoy!!! They are very rich so go steady on them!!! I only managed 2 pieces in one go, even though I wanted more! They really are amazing!

      1. Made them! Waited forever to cool! Well, maybe a little exaggerated and then ate 3!!!!!! So far! Very yummy! Did this batch nut free for now! Next might add dome pecans and caramilk bar pieces like my recipe from the Bridge Lover’s Cookbook to make turtle brownies! Hmm brownies!

      2. haha! So glad you finally got to eat them and they turned out good! Your new twist sounds great Jen, looking forward to your next update on the ‘turtle’ brownies!

  4. I made the recipe today and it is Wonderful! Delicious! Easy! Thank you very much for sharing this amazing recipe!!!
    Hi! from Mexico

    1. Hi Pilar, everything you need is right there in the recipe, so don;t worry! You can trust that it will turn out just as the photo so long as you follow the recipe. Many many people have tried it and can say it certainly works!

    Your recipe is amazing! It’s like molten, fudgey sin! I had to sub semisweet baker’s squares for half of the dark chocolate; it’s what I had in the pantry. They still turned out utterly decadent. I will be using this recipe again. Pardon me while I go eat another one (or two). #^ o ^# ~<3

  6. So going to make these! However, I see on the temperature section that you have 325 then you have /Gas 3…is the temperature for a gas stove/oven supposed to be different?

    1. Hi Beth, the gas temperature is what is used in European ovens, officially called Gas Mark 3, the temperature you need to go by if you are US is the Fahrenheit one, so that would be 325. Europe go by Gas Mark and Celsius, so that’s why I have 3 different temperatures on the recipe!

    I think I am addicted to this page! This is the fourth recipe I have tried in 2 weeks. When they are done I will give an updated review.

    1. Hi Audra! So happy you are enjoying the recipes. Please feel free to pop over to our Facebook page when you have any updates or photos of your creations! Would love to see them and it will be easier for me to give reaction and guidance if needed via Facebook. Enjoy our recipes!

    1. Hi SHirley, I think that should be fine, the brownies may not fill the pan as high as the original recipe, but only by a little less in height due to the pan being larger that what Gerda used. So I would advise to reduce the cook time a little , say 5 minutes less, just to be sure! They are wonderful brownies!
