  • 125 grams dark chocolate chopped
  • 60 grams butter cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup flour


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Prepare an eight-inch cheesecake pan by wrapping the sides and bottom with two layers of aluminum foil.
  • Lightly spray the inside of the pan with oil.
  • Place the chocolate and butter in a microwaveable bowl. Melt in the microwave oven for 45 seconds on HIGH. Mix until smooth. Cool for a bit.
  • Mix in the sugar and salt.
  • Add the egg and stir.
  • Lastly, add the flour and mix until the mixture looks homogenous.
  • Pour the brownie mix into the prepared pan. Bake at 350F for 40 to 45 minutes. Prick the center with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, the brownie crust is done.
  • The crust will be higher along the edges. That's how it should be.
