The Lazy Cook's Brownie

Also known as the Best Ever Brownie.

So, Happy Easter to y'all. And if you haven't had enough of the good chocolate stuff already, whip up some of these and get them into you. You know I am the laziest cook out there (although I prefer the term "simplistic" ;-) and after trying this recipe the other day and finding the Tupperware dish empty after the men had smoko, I knew I was onto a winner.

Warning: possibly not the most diet friendly recipe!

Also to note: the recipe calls for Plain flour and baking powder however I misread the first time and used Self Raising, so omitted the baking powder when I came to it. They came out perfectly so you can choose which you would like to use.

250g choc bits or melts (dark or milk, personally I prefer dark)

1 cup plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 can condensed milk

2 tablespoons melted butter

2 heaped tablespoons cocoa

Preheat oven to 180 Celsius. Mix all ingredients until well combined (by hand - good for the upper arms!) Spread into lined or well greased brownie tin. Bake 20-30 mins moderate oven. Cut into slices when slightly cooled and rest.

Don't know how long it will keep for as it hasn't lasted more than one day so far.

Bon appetite!

PS there will be fights over who gets to lick the dish!


  1. Yum, I love simple recipes like this. You can't have too much chocolate on the Annual Chocolate Holiday

  2. Lazy doesn't matter.... YUM is all any chocolate lover cares about :)
