The Best Ever Chocolate Brownies
These are officially the most delicious chocolate brownies I have ever baked. They are so moist and chocolatey and the large chocolate chips give each mouthful a very satisfying and indulgent crunch.
My two young boys said that these were the scrummiest treats I have ever baked and this wonderful statement was supported by both my sister and husband who agreed. In fact, they all thought that they were the best ever!
So in order to spread lots of happy smiles, why don’t you don your baking apron and give these little chocolate delights a whirl? Perfect for a Friday treat and lovely to be enjoyed over the weekend too (that is if they last that long!!)
Gluten free. Dairy free. Soya free.
- 100g dairy free margarine
- 175g caster sugar
- 75g light brown sugar
- 250g dark chocolate, broken up in to small chunks
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 2 eggs
- 100g gluten free plain flour, sieved
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp dairy & soya free cocoa powder, sieved (I use Green and Blacks)
- Heat the oven to 180C.
- Grease and line a 20cm cake tin.
- Place the butter, caster sugar, brown sugar, golden syrup and half of the dark chocolate chunks (125g) in to a saucepan and melt gently on a low heat until it is smooth. Or alternatively, use the microwave.
- Remove the pan from the heat.
- Break the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk with a fork until light and frothy.
- Add the vanilla extract, flour, baking powder and cocoa powder to the eggs and mix thoroughly.
- Pour the chocolate mixture from the pan in to the bowl and continue to mix.
- Then add half of your remaining chocolate chunks and give one final mix before pouring everything into the cake tin.
- Press down lightly and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chunks over the top.
- Place the tin on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 25-30 mins.
- Once cooked, remove and allow to cool for a further 20-30 mins before cutting the cake into squares or triangles, whichever you prefer.
- Serve as they are or, alternatively, warm them up with a scoop of coconut ice-cream for the ultimate indulgent treat!
Fancy trying another chocolatey cake bake? This chocolate brownie cake could be the answer and is perfect for birthday parties and special occasions.
For an alternative cake treat, why don’t you try this tempting Victoria Sponge cake? It made the perfect celebration cake for my Mum’s confirmation and the cut up strawberries and grated chocolate finished it off beautifully.
