Dark Chocolate Brownies


160g butter
200g dark chocolate (I use 85% from Island Chocolate)
225g caster sugar
3 eggs
60g plain flour (you can also use gluten free flour or ground almonds)
60g cocoa powder

Ideas For Toppings:

White chocolate
Salted caramel 
Nut butter
Dried fruit 

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C. Place the dark chocolate and butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave, or over a bain-marie.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together until pale and the mixture leaves a ribbon with the whisk.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and fold together. Sieve the plain flour and cocoa powder together and fold into the batter. 
  • Pour the mixture into a lined oven tray and sprinkle the chopped white chocolate over the surface.
  • Bake for 40-50 mins. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin.
