- 250g unsalted butter and a little extra for the tin
- 250g dark or milk chocolate broken into pieces
- 4 large eggs
- 300g golden caster sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla extract or paste
- 100g gluten-free plain flour, sieved
- 60g cocoa powder
- ½ tsp fine sea salt
- 150g chocolate chips
- Heat proof bowl slightly bigger than the saucepan
- Mixer or whisk and a bowl
- Baking tin 30x20cm
- Baking paper
- Wooden spoons x2
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Lightly grease the tin with butter all over the inside and line the base with baking paper.
Fill the saucepan a third full with water, bring to a simmer and put the heatproof bowl on top of it. Place in the bowl the butter and chocolate and gently melt, stirring occasionally over a low heat. Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little.
Mix the eggs and sugar together using the mixer or whisk for 8-10 mins until thick enough to leave a trail behind. Carefully fold through the now cooled melted chocolate and add the vanilla, flour, cocoa and salt.
Evenly mix the chocolate chips throughout the batter and pour the brownie mix into the tin, place in the centre of the oven and bake for 30-35 mins. Test the brownie is cooked by placing a cocktail stick into the centre – if it comes out clean, they are cooked. The sides of the brownie should be firm and cooked well
Leave to cool in the tin before cutting into 12 squares.
I like to serve this with fresh raspberries and whipped cream.
