“Brownies are my go-to treat for picnics or afternoon tea. I like to drizzle them with extra chocolate sauce before serving.” – Michelle Southan




  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease a 20cm (base measurement) square pan and line with baking paper.

  2. Place butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Stir with a metal spoon until melted. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in egg, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Beat with a wooden spoon until combined. Pour into pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out with moist crumbs clinging. Set aside to cool completely.
