Slightly Stoned Chef – Issue 10

Delicious gooey chocolate brownies can be enjoyed fresh out of the oven, with a dollop of cream or laced with marijuana. The opportunities are endless. For the sake of this week’s installment of Slightly Stoned Chef, these are the plain brownies you’d make after consuming the naughty ones first. 



250g butter

½ cup cocoa powder

1 ½ cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup plain flour

1 tsp baking powder


Method (slightly stoned):

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a small square or rectangular tin with baking paper.


  1. In the microwave, melt butter in a large bowl. Remove bowl from microwave and mix in cocoa and stir in sugar.


  1. Add eggs and mix well, then add vanilla essence. Sift in flour and baking powder and mix to combine. 


  1. Pour into the prepared tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brownie springs back when touched lightly.


Method (too stoned):

  1. Square? Rectangle? Who the fuck named shapes and why aren’t rectangles called long squares? 
  2. Mmm, cocoa looks so yummy and chocolatey. A little taste this early into the recipe wont hurt.  
  3. Fuck. Cocoa does not = chocolate. Rinse mouth well and take a breather. The feeling in your legs is starting to fade now. Who the fuck named legs and why aren’t they called walking arms?
  4. Regret ever thinking you could make a brownie from scratch in your current mental state. Should have gone with the Betty Crocker boxed brownie mix.
