Harry’s Brookies

My favourite cooking show is Masterchef Australia. I don’t really like the other country versions that are on air. They seem TRP focused, while the Australia one is warm, delicious and u connect with the judges as well as participants.

The episode where Nigella and Matt wake up the participants for a midnight snack was superb. Harry made these Brookies and I just wanted to jump into the TV and share a midnight snack with him. Both the Brookies and Harry looked scrumptious. This is my layout for a midnight snack with Harry ?


Finally made these and they are to die for. Made 2 lots. One bigger and with less cooking time, they were chewy like a brownie and then these ones with the mentioned cooking time which were crunchy. Both though were simply delicious.

Recipe from http://tenplay.com.au/channel-ten/masterchef/recipes/dark-chocolate-brookies (with a few inputs & changes)


350 gms pure dark chocolate (i used 50% Van Houten)

45 gms Amul Butter

210 gms Caster Sugar

80 gms Cornflour

1 tsp baking powder

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp Nescafe powder

ChocoChips for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Place chocolate and butter in a bowl and microwave for a minute. Stir to melt and combine. If not completely melted then microwave at 10 seconds interval. Remove and set aside to cool until needed.
  3. Sieve the cornflour, sugar, coffee powder and baking powder and mix it well.
  4. Add the eggs, Vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.
  5. Add cooled chocolate butter mixture and mix until well combined.
  6. Let it rest for 15-20 mins.
  7. The mixture is wet, so fill it in a piping bag and pipe it on a silicon mat or baking paper.
  8. Dot the top of the cookies with the dark chocolate chips, pressing gently into the dough. Bake for 10-11 minutes in the preheated oven. Shut the oven and leave it in for 3-4 mins. Then remove from oven and set aside to cool.

(Cooking for a minute less or more will change the texture of the brookies. Lesser will make it soft and chewy like a brownie and longer will give u a crunch. Both taste yum This batch will give a huge amount of brookies so experiment with both textures)
