KP's 'Famous' Chocolate Brownies

This is my number one go to recipe when anyone asks me to make a sweet treat. I must have made these brownies for hundreds of people over the years and without blowing my own trumpet, they are pretty damn good! There's no chat about fibre, vitamins or minerals for this recipe, just a delicious rich chocolatey gooey brownie for you to enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes approx. 16 pieces)*:

  • 30g plain flour

  • 45g cocoa powder

  • 375g caster sugar

  • 180g plain chocolate

  • 180g butter

  • 3 eggs

  • 100g white chocolate  

Method:

  • Turn your oven onto 180 degrees centigrade to heat up

  • Line a 20cm x 30cm tin with baking parchment

  • Melt the butter on the hob over a low heat

  • Whilst the butter is melting, chop the plain chocolate & white chocolate into small pieces (I tend to chop a small square into quarters). Ensure you keep the plain & white chocolate separate. 

  • Mix the plain flour, cocoa powder, caster sugar & plain chocolate pieces in a large mixing bowl

  • Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix (at this point the mixture often looks quite granular and thick)

  • Whisk the eggs in a mug then add to mixture and mix together (now the mixture will be become more silky and the texture you would expect)

  • Add the chopped white chocolate and do your final mix

  • Add the combined mixture to the lined tin and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. The brownies should be slightly 'wobbly' when you take them out the oven (this will mean they are nice & gooey)

  • Leave to rest in the tin until cool

  • Cut the brownie into approximately 16 pieces (these are generous size pieces so you can go smaller if you wish)

 

For those with allergies/intolerances/ dietary exclusions this recipe can also be easily adapted*:

  • Coeliac disease/wheat intolerance - use a gluten free flour (I often make this recipe gluten free and I never notice the difference!)

  • Dairy allergy - swap to a dairy free butter and exclude the white chocolate

  • Lactose intolerance - exclude the white chocolate. You could add nuts to the mixture instead

  • Low FODMAP diet - use a wheat free flour and exclude the white chocolate. You could add low FODMAP nuts such as chopped walnuts or macadamia nuts instead of the white chocolate  

*Always check food labels for allergens before using ingredients.
