    Serves: 9 

    • 185g unsalted butter
    • 185g best dark chocolate
    • 3 large eggs
    • 275g golden caster sugar
    • 85g plain flour
    • 40g cocoa powder
    • 50g white chocolate
    • 50g milk chocolate

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Cut the butter and put in a bowl with the dark chocolate over boiling water, stirring until melted. Leave aside at room temperature.
    2. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm shallow square tin (or similar size).
    3. Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk thoroughly with the sugar until thick and creamy, so the volume is near doubled, about 5 minutes.
    4. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the egg mixture and gently fold together.
    5. Sieve the flour and cocoa powder into the bowl and gently fold until fudgy - do not over do it!
    6. Chop the milk and white chocolate into rough squares and fold them into the mixture. Pour into the prepared tin.
    7. Bake in the oven for approximately 25 minutes, but it can vary to up to 40 minutes. To check the brownies are cooked, put a knife or skewer into the brownies and if it comes out very liquidy, it is not ready.


    Leave to cool slightly before cutting - best served warm!

    Prefect brownies but I used 2 large eggs rather than 3, and a splash of milk as the fudge mixture was really quite thick. Turned out perfect, I intend to use some of these as the base for a Black Forest Trifle 😋  -  19 Dec 2017


    not too sure what to think of this at first because ive made brownies before and they didn't go very well but this recipe is honestly amazing. changed the ingredients up a bit because I didn't have some of the right stuff but it still seemed to work! thank you for sharing this!  -  17 May 2015


    Brownies are great but I find if I use 3 large eggs the mixture won't cook properly. Two tend to work better and using terrie's chocolate orange instead of white choc, galaxy opposed to dark choc creates the best ones!  -  10 Mar 2015
