Nutella Chocolate Brownies

I would say brownies is easy to make but I have not come across a recipe that I really like.  The last time when I bake one, my lover boy told me please not add nuts into brownie again and I knew he wouldn't like dried fruit as well.  I alway believe that when baking chocolate cake or slices, using cocoa powder is not as good as using real chocolate.  And I want to proof that I'm wrong so I'm trying to make one using cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate but I must put in chocolate bits just in case it doesn't work.  When it is all ready to go into the oven, I couldn't stop myself putting some Nutella on top.  I know I have got the idea from somewhere.  Then I find that it is from kitchenbelleicious's Nutella Coconut & Caramel Brownies Although this brownie is made for my son, my husband loves it the most and I've made the boys happy.

Nutella Chocolate Brownies

1 1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
130g butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
4-5 tablespoons Nutella
60g milk chocolate, chopped coarsely
60g white chocolate, chopped coarsely


  1. Preheat oven to 180c/160c fan-forced. Grease 19cm x 29cm slice pan; line base with baking paper.
  2. Melt butter in pan, leave cool a little.
  3. Sifted flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sugar and salt into the mixture until well mixed.
  4. Add melted butter and beaten eggs into the dry ingredients. Stir in chopped chocolate. Spread mixture into pan. 
  5. Spread Nutella diagonally or vertically along the pan and then use a knife to swirl up and down the mixture to form a pattern.  
  6. Bake brownies 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan before cutting into slices.
