Easy Brownie Recipe for Kids

This easy brownie recipe is from Max's French cookbook, so of course it has a nice French name. You'll find it to be basically like brownies, but don't hesitate to learn a little French. Fondant means melting and that's how this cake should taste in your mouth.

Le Choco Fondant

Makes 16 (2 1/4 inch) squares


  • 6 ounces dark chocolate
  • 6 ounces butter
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • pinch of salt


  1. Break the chocolate into small bits and melt it with the butter in a pot on very low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat when all is melted and blended.
  2. Let cool for five minutes then mix in flour, sugar, eggs and salt, beating well after each ingredient.
  3. Butter and flour a 9 inch cake pan (Max uses a fluted edged pan for a pretty effect) and pour in batter.
  4. Bake at 375° F for about 20 minutes. Just the edges of the cake should be cooked through - the center should still be a bit soft. Let cool.
  5. This tastes great if you serve it while it is still warm.
