These rich, fudgy chocolate brownies are gluten-free. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert, or enjoy as an afternoon treat with a cup of tea
- Serves: 12 persons
- 250g unsalted butter, cubed, plus extra for the tin
- 250g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
- 4large eggs
- 300g golden caster sugar
- ½tsp vanilla extract or paste
- 100g gluten-free plain flour, sieved
- 60g cocoa powder
- ½tsp fine sea salt
- 150g milk chocolate, roughly cut into chunks
Step 1Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter a 30cm x 20cm non-stick tin with butter and line the base with non-stick baking parchment.
Step 2Fill a small saucepan a third full with water, bring to a simmer and put a snug-fitting heatproof bowl on top of it. Add the butter and chocolate and gently melt over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let it catch and burn on the bottom. Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little.
Step 3Beat the eggs and sugar together using an electric whisk for 8-10 mins or until thick enough to leave a trail. Gently fold through the cooled melted chocolate and vanilla, followed by the flour, cocoa and salt. Finally, fold through the chocolate chunks. Pour the brownie batter into the lined tin, place in the centre of the oven and bake for 30-35 mins.
Step 4Leave to cool a little in the tin before cutting into 12 squares.
