bloomin brill choc brownies!!


serves 20

ingredients


• 250g unsalted butter


• 200g dark Fairtrade chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken up


• optional: 75g dried sour cherries


• optional: 50g chopped nuts


• 80g cocoa powder, sifted


• 65g plain flour, sifted


• 1 teaspoon baking powder


• 360g caster sugar


• 4 large free-range or organic eggs


• optional: zest of 1 orange


• optional: 250ml crème fraîche


Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Line a 25cm square baking tin

with greaseproof paper. In a large bowl over some simmering water, melt

the butter and the chocolate and mix until smooth. Add the cherries and

nuts, if you’re using them, and stir together. In a separate bowl, mix

together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, then add

this to the chocolate, cherry and nut mixture. Stir together well. Beat

the eggs and mix in until you have a silky consistency.



Pour your brownie mix into the baking tray, and place in the oven for

around 25 minutes. You don’t want to overcook them so, unlike cakes,

you don’t want a skewer to come out all clean. The brownies should be

slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle. Allow to

cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and

cut into chunky squares. These make a fantastic dessert served with a

dollop of crème fraîche mixed with some orange zest.
