Chocolate Brownies

It’s as easy as ABC…

A. Grease an oblong tin about 11 by 7 inches, 1-inch deep. Sieve together flour, salt and cocoa. In another bowl beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add eggs a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold sieved ingredients into mixture with milk. Mix well. Turn into prepared tin.

B. Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 35 minutes until centre of sponge springs back when lightly pressed. Allow to cool in tin.

C. Melt butter for icing. Add cocoa. Cook over low heat for 1 minute. remove from heat and add evaporated milk and icing sugar. Mix in thoroughly. Spread over cake in tin and leave to set, then cut cake into 15 squares.


Cocoa gives a strong chocolate flavour. It is essential to cook it for all recipes and to add sweetening. Chocolate powder is already sweetened and does not require cooking in recipes; the resulting flavour is less chocolatey.
