Luxury Chocolate Brownies


Brownies are such a good idea, especially as this recipe is a traybake which is so convenient for cake sales. You could be healthy and have Chocolate and Beetroot Brownies, but they are boring so I decided to share a fully chocolate one (rest assured there is no beetroot in this post!)


  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 250g butter
  • 250g chocolate (any kind but preferably cooking chocolate)
  • 3 large eggs plus 1 extra egg yolk
  • 60g flour
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder


  1. Set the oven at 180°C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Line your baking tin with baking parchment to stop it sticking to the bottom of the tray.
  3. Put the sugar and butter into a bowl and beat either by hand or using a food mixer for several minutes until white and fluffy.
  4. Melt all the chocolate either by using a microwave or using a pan and the hob.
  5. Break the eggs into a small bowl.
  6. Beat the eggs lightly with a fork.
  7. Sift together the flour, cocoa and baking powder and mix in a pinch of salt into a bowl and then add to the food mixer.
  8. Using the food mixer, slowly add parts the beaten egg and repeat until all the egg is gone.
  9. Mix well then add the melted chocolate and mix well.
  10. Fold in the flour and cocoa powder.
  11. Pour the mixture into the tray and bake for 30 minutes.

You could add cream to lighten the richness of this dessert but I think that if you have this on a Friday, you shouldn’t need it as you probably have been working really hard and deserve it! As Joe Wicks says “oh naughty!”
