A brownie is a dessert that consists of melted chocolate, cocoa powder, sugar, eggs, salt, and butter or margarine.
It was created out of a creative inkling by Fannie Merritt Farmer when she drastically reduced the flour in one of her chocolate cookie recipes.
In most places, they either sell cake-like or fudge-like brownies and the outcome depends on the ratio of fat and chocolate to flour. The higher content of fat from oil and moisture of molasses in brown sugar and the shorter the baking time, the fudgier a brownie should be.
Personally I love the fudgy ones. They would have a chewy or cookie-like consistency that’s baked flat with a crackled top.
Hence, here are 11 places to get your fix for some fudgy brownies in KL.
1. Good Ground Bakery
At Good Ground Bakery, they’ve got their brownie recipe sorted.
Crackly on top, fudgy, chocolatey, sweet and with a touch of sea salt in the middle, the cookie base adds a nice crunchy texture to this gooey square of joy.
Not cakey but decadently moist, we’d see this going perfectly well with a glass of red wine.
Hours: Tuesdays-Saturdays: 10.30am-7pm (Closed on Sundays and Mondays)
Address: 143, Jalan SS 17/1a, Ss 17, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor

2. Jaslyn Cakes
If you’re a fan of chocolate with a touch of salt, this is another option for you. Jaslyn Cakes is now available in both Bangsar and Mont Kiara with their baked goods made fresh daily.
They’ve got brownies made with Valrhona Guanaja chocolate chunks and sprinkled with sea salt flakes and Blondies. For their Blondies recipe, they have replaced the chocolate with brown sugar and vanilla.
To get your hands on a tray (16 slices) of brownies, do note that you are required to pre-order them a week in advance.

I have been the longest fan of their coffee since my first sip in 2012 and nothing makes the love grow stronger than a decadent bar of brownies to go with it.
In the menu, the brownie is described as, “Rich and moist chocolate brownie with toffee and chopped walnuts, topped with cocoa powder dusting.” I don’t know about you but I’m sure as heck excited to return and give these bars a try.

We’re loving how sinfully delightful the cakes at Chewy Bakes look. Based in Subang Jaya, all their brownies come with chocolate chips on the inside and chocolate drizzles on the outside.

Gluten-free and vegan, their cakes are equally as delicious as your regular brownies. They’ve got 6 different types of brownies and blondies with different consistencies to choose from. I’ve had their Brown Cow Brownie and it was delightfully chewy out of the fridge.
Their Choc Stellar brownie is a chunky gooey fudgey gluten and nut-free brownie which sounds great too. If you’re mad about matcha, their Matcha heaven blondies could satisfy your matcha and brownie cravings all at once. 😉
P.S.: 10% of their total sales are donated to a cause each year. How’s that for feel-good brownies?
