⏲ Total Time
60 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🍫 245 g dark chocolate
  • 🧈 200 g butter
  • 🍬 175 g granulated sugar
  • 🍁 125 g light brown sugar
  • 🥚 4 large eggs
  • 🍦 2 tsp vanilla
  • 🌾 115 g all-purpose flour
  • 🧂 1 pinch salt
  • 🍫 100 g dark chocolate chunks (optional)

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 30 x 23cm cake tin
  • 1 baking parchment
  • 1 large heatproof bowl
  • 1 balloon whisk
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 wire rack

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 30 x 23cm cake tin with baking parchment.

Step 2

Put the roughly chopped dark chocolate and butter into a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water (don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water underneath) and leave until melted, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Remove from the heat and cool the chocolate down by whisking in the granulated sugar and light brown sugar using a balloon whisk. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix in with a wooden spoon until combined. Sift over the all-purpose flour and salt and stir again until smooth and combined. Pour into the prepared tin, smoothing the top level.

Step 4

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until cracked around the edges and soft in the middle (it will firm up as it cools), rotating the tin halfway through baking.

Step 5

If you are adding the dark chocolate chunks (optional), take the brownie out of the oven after 20 minutes and vigorously throw the chunks of chocolate at the half-baked brownie so they break the surface. Return to the oven for the remaining cooking time.

Step 6

Transfer the brownie to a wire rack and leave it to cool in the tin, then cut into squares before serving. Once cooled, the brownies will keep in an airtight container for up to a week. Alternatively, cool the cooked brownie in the tin for 10 minutes, then cut into squares and serve warm with a dollop of thick cream.
