  • 70g self-raising flour

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar (for sprinkling, optional)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 150g caster sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 80ml extra virgin olive oil

  • 3 medium eggs

  • 115g 70% cocoa chocolate


  1. Place chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water. Stir until the chocolate melts. Alternatively melt in the microwave for around 20 seconds. Do not overcook in the microwave. Whisk in oil. Leave to cool.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. In another bowl whisk the eggs and sugar until light and pale. Stir in the vanilla extract and chocolate mix. Gently fold in the flour mix, until all is incorporated. Line an 8in/20cm square non-stick tin with baking parchment and oil lightly. Pour in brownie mix and smooth over.
  3. Bake in a pre-heated oven 180C/Gas Mark 5 for 20-22 minutes. Test with the point of a thin sharp knife which should come out just clean, but slightly moist. Cool then cut into squares. Serve sprinkled with sifted icing sugar.
