Fudgy Dark Chocolate Dutch Brownies

If you are looking for a rich, dark chocolate brownie. You found it right here. In most of my recipes I usually use regular unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder. Sometimes when I want a really deep flavor of chocolate, I use Dutch processed cocoa. You will find Dutch cocoa in many of the store bought cookies. It’s very mild and has the most amazing chocolate aroma. Give this fudgy brownie a try. Next time at the market, pick up a container of Dutch cocoa powder. It works in so many great recipes.


Fudgy Dark Chocolate Dutch Brownies

Servings 9 square brownies


  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine or you can use butter
  • 1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1 cup pure cane sugar, or regular granulated sugar
  • 2 large or extra large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour, I used organic flour and sometimes 1/4 cup pastry flour with 1/4 cup all purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8X8 square pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, (I used a nonstick) On low to medium heat. Melt margarine or butter. Take off heat, add sugar and mix well. Make sure the egg mixture is cooled down. Add in eggs one at a time. Mix again. Add vanilla, salt, baking powder and flour. Gently mix well with a rubber spatula. Make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed into the wet. Try not to over mix though. When all is incorporated, pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes. Middle should look set and a toothpick should come out with moist to dry crumbs. If not yet done, put back into oven and bake until done. Test again.
  4. Cool in pan on a wire rack for at least 20 to 30 minutes. It’s easiest to cut up brownies with a plastic knife. Brownies don’t usually stick to the plastic knife.

Enjoy the fudgy yumminess!
