  • 250g Butter
  • 200g Dark Chocolate (At Least 70% Cocoa Solids)
  • 100g - 150g Chopped Nuts
  • 65g Plain Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder/Bi-Carb Of Soda
  • 360g Golden Caster Sugar

If there’s one thing you’ll spot in a shop window or on a stall at a farmer’s market and find yourself stopped in your tracks to have a little drool over, pondering whether to pick yourself up one or seven, it’s brownies. Brown, chocolatey, light, fluffy squares of heaven. The ones with nuts are even more dribble-worthy. This comes at a particularly painful time, given that I’m off chocolate for lent, but Rory’s gone and made them anyway. 7 simple ingredients and voila, it’s fat pants time.


Step 1

So without shadow of doubt this is a simple assembly recipe - just get you weights and measurements right and you'll have Brownies coming out of your ears!

Combine the dry ingredients - nuts, flour,sugar, bi-Carb in as big a bowl as you can get your sticky digits on - mix well.

Step 3

Crack the eggs (free range please or you are dead to me!) and froth them with a hand whisk to get plenty of air in there - you want bubbles!

Step 4

This the hard part - hard in so much as it's hard to stop licking the bowl, spoon, counter top, your own face - combine butter and chocolate and melt over a small pot of simmering water.
