Chocolate Ganache Brownies

Pin It Now!
Brownies are often classified as fudgy or cakey, my favourite brownie is thick, fudgy, chewy, chocolaty, and rich. This recipe is so easy to make and taste wonderful, I have frosted the brownies, if you are a chocolate lover you will love these ganache brownies…

Chocolate  Brownies


1 cup butter

2 cups white granulated sugar

3 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

½ tsp baking powder

1 ½ cup all purpose flour

 1cup unsweetened coco powder

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Ganache frosting:

½ cup cream

 1 cup chocolate (you can use chocolate chips, or any chocolate of your choice) 


1) Preheat oven to 180 C, Grease and flour a 9x13 baking dish.

2) Sieve the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in a bowl, add in the salt and mix nicely.
In a large sauce pan melt the butter over low heat, combine the butter sugar and vanilla in large bowl, beat in the eggs one at t a time, mixing well after each addition, until thoroughly blended.

3) Now gradually stir in the flour mixture in to the egg mixture until well blended but do'nt over mix it, stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the mixture in to baking dish and bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes.

 4) It’s done when a toothpick inserted in the tallest part comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs sticking to it. Do keep in mind we have added chocolate chips in it, if you hit one with the toothpick it will have melted chocolate on it, so poke a couple of spots to make sure you are not hitting the chocolate chips. Remember not to over bake the brownies.

 For Frosting:

While the brownies are baking you can make the ganache frosting for brownies.
 Add cream in to sauce pan and bring to boil over low heat, as soon as the bubbles starts to appear, take the pan off the stove,  add in the chocolate chips add whist until smooth.
Let it cool down until it gets slightly thick, Pour over brownies after brownies are cooled slightly. Let sit for about 1 hour, or in refrigerator until set, then cut and serve
