Heavenly Bakes

Whilst whipping up a few batches of brownies (for a Christmas cake sale) today it struck me that I always come back to this tried and tested recipe. I first came across it in the first issue of ‘The Simple Things‘ magazine and after a tweaking it a little it is foolproof:


125g Butter (I like salted but unsalted works too)

200g of the best dark chocolate you can afford (I love Lindt 70% cocoa)

Melt together in a bowl ( over a pan of boiling water)

Meanwhile sieve the following ingredients in to a bowl and mix well:

125g Plain Flour

200g Caster Sugar

1 tsp baking powder

40g of the best cocoa you can get

….. add the choc/butter mix in until it is a nice paste, then add 3 eggs and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and whisk until the mixture is a lovely glossy, gloopy texture.

smash up 150-200g white chocolate into chunks and mix in.

You’re ready to bake!

180 degrees for 20 min gives you a super chewy/soft brownie – especially good if you are not eating them straightaway, go for 25 min is you prefer a bit more of a cakey texture.

Try not to eat them all at once x
