I got this recipe from Sharon, a flatmate at my university, who got it from her Gran. Her Gran was an amazing cook who never needed to weigh anything! Luckily, Sharon had made her write this one down. I know you can get these at nearly every bakery in the high street but they are relatively simple to make and well worth the effort.
It's fudgy, chewy and delicious! I was looking for the ultimate brownies and have tried many recipes. I've also tried brownies bought from the shop. Neither really satisfied me. I wanted a brownie that is chewy, not crumbly. After trying many different recipes and techniques, I finally came up with one. Try it! If you are diabetic, there are sugar-free chocolates available at some supermarkets and you may use Isomalt as substitute for sugar but in very small amounts.
A wonderfully moist chocolate cake recipe that is easy to make. Turn this into a favourite birthday or celebration cake by making it in two 23cm (9 in) cake tins instead of one large one, and layering with chocolate buttercream. Adjust the baking time if making into two cakes.
Fudgy, sweet and chocolate-y all over, and made in a snap! Almost no cleaning required afterwards! What else can we ask of a recipe? Look at the tips for changing the amounts of the ingredients!
This chocolate chip shortbread biscuit is incredible. It's so rich and tasty. I cannot tell how many times I get asked for this recipe. Everyone loves it and it's easy to make. These keep very well. You can make dough ahead time and freeze it. Defrost when ready to use and follow baking instructions.
These are very gooey, which is a good thing in my book. However, if you want your brownies a little more solid you'll need to cook them longer than the recommended time. Great for people with egg or dairy allergies. Feel free to add your own additions like hazelnuts, walnuts or sunflower seeds.
A basic chocolate concrete (or crunch as you may know it). Very easy to make with only 4 ingredients. Makes a nice dessert in winter that kids absolutely love. It's my siblings' favourite. I use a 23cm sandwich tin, you can use almost anything really. Plus it is a really cheap dessert.
These classic American-style chocolate chip cookies have crisp edges and chewy middles. They truly are the best chocolate chip cookies!
These are squidgy chocolate brownie-like cookies, combining the best of both worlds! They also happen to be dairy free.
This is a really simple, yet very tasty cake or you can make chocolate buns with the mixture instead. (If you do - note these will take less time to cook). You can use rice flour or something other than wheat. You can also add chocolate chips and/or nuts.
