  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 300g caster sugar

  • 200g dark chocolate

  • 200g unsalted butter

  • 140g plain flour

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 3 eggs large


  1. Line a tin with baking parchment (about 23 x 33cm).
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter together.
  3. Beat the eggs, vanilla extract and sugar together.
  4. Beat in the chocolate mixture.
  5. Fold in the flour and salt.
  6. Pour into the tin and cook at 160-180C until cracks start to appear on the surface and firm on the outside but gooey on the inside.
  7. Leave to cool in the tin and then cut into 24 squares.

Handy Hint

By far the best chocolate to use is Green and Blacks 72% cooking chocolate.
Make sure you keep whisking the egg mixture when you pour in the warm chocolate mix so that you don't end up with scrambled eggs!

    Very simple but scrummy brownies. They contain no nuts so are suitable for little people too (although you may not want to share them!) Perfect warm with vanilla ice cream. Easy to bake with toddlers as the recipe is interesting but not too taxing and quick to prepare.
