FOR THE BROWNIES: – 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/3 cup (28g) cocoa powder – 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar – 1/2 cup (100g) light brown sugar – 3 large egg – 1/2 cup (118ml) milk – 1/2 cup (113g) melted butter, slightly cooled – 1 cup (170g) chocolate chip FOR THE MERINGUE: – 3 large egg white – 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar – 1 teaspoon lemon juice – 1/2 cup (85g) semisweet or dark chocolate chip


Step 1

MAKE BROWNIES: Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease and parchment a 9"x9" pan. 

Step 2

Mix flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl. 

Step 3

Whisk eggs, milk, and melted butter in another basin. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until mixed. Add chocolate chunks and stir again. 

Step 4

Place batter in pan and spread evenly. Bake brownies for 25–30 minutes until almost set but the center wobbles. Let brownies cool in the pan on a wire rack after baking.

Step 5

MAKE MERINGUE: Place egg whites, lemon juice, and sugar in a heatproof bowl (ideally stainless steel or glass).

Place the bowl over simmering water. Simmering water should not touch the basin, which should fit tightly. Stir regularly until the sugar melts and the mixture is hot.

The meringue should reach 160°F. Then remove the bowl from heat.  Beat 5-6 minutes till white and fluffy using an electric or stand mixer.
