The component of a perfect brownie is a matter of personal preference. We'd suggest that there are few better things in life than getting your hands on a soft, gooey brownie that literally melts in the mouth, complemented by some cooling vanilla ice cream – heaven!
Others disagree and prefer one that is chewy, with a fudge-like consistency. The beauty of our brownie obsession is that restaurants across Ireland are creating indulgent chocolate desserts inspired by the much-loved brownie in all shapes and sizes, catering for all textures and flavours.
Whichever brownie camp you find yourself in, you can be reassured that there are a number of restaurants in and around Cork and Douglas that offer fresh chocolate brownies for you to take away and devour from the comfort of your own home – perfect for that Saturday night-in with a blanket.
With that in mind, we thought now would be the ideal opportunity to shine a spotlight on some of the best freshly baked brownies available from Deliveroo restaurants in Cork and further afield.
1. EAST By The Rocket Man
EAST By The Rocket Man is the second located by Rocket Man in Cork city centre. The chain has been in existence since 2012 with the intention of providing convenient yet healthy food and using fresh produce from the farmers' markets of Cork. EAST specialises in deli and falafel, but its coffee and cakes are to die for too, especially their double chocolate brownies that are a super-rich and perfect accompaniment to a fresh coffee.
2. Krüst Bakery
Reportedly the world's inaugural 'smart' bakery/café, you simply must to venture to the heart of Dublin city centre to find delicious melt-in-the-mouth brownies that go down wonderfully with an organic coffee. Krüst Bakery also specialise in the new nitro coffee trend, as well as dreamy donuts and cronuts and gourmet sandwiches that provide a delicious snack at any time of the day.
3. Quattro Woodfired Pizza
On the outskirts of Dublin in Stepaside Village sits Quattro Woodfired Pizza, a quirky Italian pizzeria committed to delivering real Romana style wood-fired pizza and indulgent desserts to boot. As you can see from the image above, they are big fans of combining vanilla ice cream with their brownie, not to mention oodles of chocolate sauce on top!
The common mistakes when making your own brownies

- Baking with poor-quality chocolate
- Burning the chocolate when melting it
- Scrambling your eggs with piping hot melted chocolate
- Adding too many intricate flavour combinations
- A lack of patience leading to under-baked brownies!
