Easter is all about food, right? (Well, in our house anyway!) So it’s perfect timing that Masterchef is back on Network Ten this Easter Monday, 18th April at 7:30pm. And how lucky are we? One of this years contestants, Steph Woon has created an Easter Brownies Recipe, just for all of our Kids In Adelaide followers!

If you need a dessert to take to your family Easter catch up, something to take with you on a school holiday outing, or you just want to do some cooking with the kids over the long weekend, this is the perfect recipe for you!

Here’s the recipe:



  • 200g 70% Dark Chocolate
  • 150g Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Egg
  • 225g Brown Sugar
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 60g Plain Flour
  • 30g Dutch-processed Cocoa Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Approx. 20 mini Easter Eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees (fan forced)
  2. Line a 8”x 8” tin with baking paper
  3. For the brownie, melt the butter and chocolate in a microwave at 30 second increments until combined.
  4. Whisk the eggs with the brown sugar until pale with a hand mixer (or stand mixer if you have one) then add in the vanilla extract and melted chocolate.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt.
  6. Sift the dry ingredients onto the chocolate batter and fold until well incorporated.
  7. Pour batter into prepared tin and spread evenly.
  8. Gently push the chocolate easter eggs into the batter.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 160 degrees.
  10. Leave the brownie in the tin for 10 minutes before removing from tin. Let the brownie completely cool before serving.
