I used to think that baking brownies is hard and time consuming until I once decided to just buy a baking tin and try it out. As with all unexpected try-outs it all turned out to be super easy. But of course I wasn’t satisfied, the next step was to make that perfect, moist, gooey brownie. Countless chocolate soups were created and so it took me quite some time to come up with a recipe that truly serves its purpose. Now let me state the following: I personally love my brownies the way they come out with this recipe. So if you don’t like moist, gooeyness, a sour pinch (cranberries) and an earthy, nutty bottom, then don’t make it! Then again, if you’re reading this I’m hoping that you trust me when it comes to recipes, right? 😉 Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Dishtales Cranberry Macadamia Brownies


  • Serving a bunch of brownies
  • 250 gr Butter
  • 250 gr dark chocolate (crushed)
  • 350 gr sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 150 gr Flour
  • pinch of salt
  • crushed macadamia nuts (around 200 gr, but really as much as you prefer)
  • dried cranberries (same here, use as much as you prefer)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F
  2. Melt butter and chocolate in a bowl (au bain-marie) and set aside to cool
  3. Mix sugar and eggs in a separate bowl for 2-3 minutes
  4. Keep mixing the wet ingredients while slowly adding the butter/chocolate mix. Make sure it's mixed well
  5. I highly recommend that you do this next step by hand. Gradually add the sifted flour & salt into the wet ingredient mix. Don't mix this in, however, fold it in gently with a spatula. Make sure it's all mixed well though
  6. Grease a baking tin (approximately 25 cm) and and line it with baking paper. Now add the crushed macadamia nuts onto the bottom and spread evenly.
  7. Add the brownie mixture onto the macadamia bottom and even it out with a spatula. Time to bake (for about 30 minutes)!
  8. Note: don't panic when you check on your brownie and a toothpick does NOT come out clean. With this recipe you're actually supposed to bake a gooey brownie! Trust me, it's yummy! 🙂
  9. Decorate and serve as you wish. I love some fresh fruit alongside and powdered sugar all over it (as you see on the post pictures)
