Just Brownies Original Chocolate Brownies

[ 3 ] Comments

just brownies brownieI was sent one of these individually wrapped brownies by the lovely woman behind the Just Brownies name. Working in batches, she creates some unique and crazy flavours in her brownies, setting her apart from more traditional brownie makers. Using local Sussex laid eggs & self raising flour (among other things) her brownies are then individually wrapped in plastic for onward delivery.

When I was contacted, I was offered any brownies I wanted. Wanting to choose just one and wanting a representative sample, I opted for the original plain chocolate brownie.

just brownies brownieThis brownie arrived looking more like a cake bar than a brownie. The long, thick chocolaty brownie almost had a typical crust on top and as you can see there is some aeration in the brownie with some bubbles breaking the surface.

The flavour is very nice but is closer to a dense cake than a brownie which I know is going to be great news to some readers who don’t like my preference for fudgy brownies 🙂 The brownie is moist with lots of chocolate flavour and the aeration in the body helps give it a slightly lighter body & less dense makeup.

If you prefer your brownies more cake-like than fudgy then I recommend Just Brownies. This was an edge piece so was likely slightly dryer & more cooked but given the aeration of the brownie I’d gamble that they are mostly lighter & cakier 😉 and that is going to be a winner for a lot of people.

  1. Cakey brownies aren’t brownies, they are cake. Baking expert Nick Malgeri once said “If you like fudgy brownies, you’ll like this recipe, if you like cakey brownies…well…that’s just wrong”

  2. Phil Bennett says:

    I have tried a variety of Just Brownies products, and can vouch for the quality and great range of flavours.

  3. Many Thanks to Judith for taking the time to blog about Just Brownies. We agree that Just Brownies are a little lighter than some fudgy brownies that you can purchase but far from being a cake. We are continuing to improve our brownies all the time, and appreciate other peoples feedback, that way you learn about what customers like, We have added another 150g of chocolate to every tray bake since ‘Mostlyaboutchocolate’ sampled our brownies back in November, giving a deeper chocolaty scrummy brownie without the stodge.
