Walnut brownies

Walnut brownies


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150g walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 180C.

Lightly grease a slice tin (33 x 23 cm) with butter and line it with baking paper.

Melt the butter on the stove or in the microwave.

Using a mixer, beat the eggs and sugar together, add vanilla, flour, cocoa, salt (optional) and the melted butter next.

Using a spatula fold in the walnuts and gently pour the mixture into the tin.

Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes. You can test if the brownies are cooked through by inserting a wooden skewer into the centre of the tin. If it comes out clean, they’re ready to be taken out of the oven.

Let the brownies cool and dust with sifted icing sugar. Decorate with cut strawberries and serve on a platter.


  • If you like a denser, gooier brownie, remove from the oven at around 18 minutes.
  • This mixture becomes more cakelike if you beat the batter for an extended time.
