It’s been a while since I posted about my baking trails and tribulations, so I thought I would share this oh so simple recipe that I always fall back on. You can mix it up a bit by adding special ingredients and toppings of your choosing. Here I added raisins, sultanas and a little clementine zest for a slight tangy kick. But if you want a fool-proof chocolatey explosion, just stick to the basics with the recipe below.2 x 100g bars of good quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa) 250g unsalted butter at room temp. 200g golden caster sugar 6 level tablespoons of cocoa powder 4 heaped tablespoons self-raising flour 4 eggs [whatever else you would like to top it with]
To start smash up the dark chocolate and chop the butter into chunks, then put them both into a food processor. Add the caster sugar, cocoa powder, self-raising flour, a pinch of salt and wizz it all together. While its spinning round and round, crack the eggs into the mixture.
Use a spatula to spoon out the mixture evenly into the tray. This is where you can get creative. I like to grate the zest of a clementine over the mixture and this time I added raisins etc. You could use nuts, like pecans, dried cherries or leave it plain – tastes great as it is anyway. Put the tray in the oven on the top self for 12-14 mins and that’s it. Easy peasy!Recipe Credits: Jamie Oliver
