Small Batch Chocolate Brownies

5 from 2 reviews

These small batch brownies are made in a loaf pan and are simple to make (the perfect amount for 1 or 2). They are chocolatey, nutty, chewy and moist!


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (75 g) Lindt milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sifted cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup (37 g) Lindt dark chocolate, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 325˚F.
  2. Grease a loaf pan or cover in parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a heatproof bowl slowly melt milk chocolate and butter together. Let cool slightly.
  4. In a separate bowl mix sifted flour, cocoa and salt together. Set aside.
  5. In another bowl whisk egg, sugar and vanilla together until pale and creamy. Slowly add chocolate mixture and whisk to combine. Add flour mixture, walnuts and chopped dark chocolate, fold ingredients together until combined.
  6. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
  7. Place in the middle of an oven and bake for 15 – 18 mins, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (don’t overbake them, you want them to be soft and a little gooey). Cool on a cooling rack.
  8. Enjoy.


For a special treat add ice cream and crushed walnuts on top of a brownie.

Store in an airtight container for 3 days.
