Foolproof Chocolate Brownie Recipe


  • 250g good quality dark chocolate – we use Callebaut Dark Chocolate Buttons
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 300g caster sugar



  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Lightly grease a tray-bake tin (or silicone tray) and line with baking paper.
  3. Melt the butter with the chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Combine the eggs and sugar to create a custard-like consistency.
  5. Slowly add the chocolate and butter, mixing in gradually to ensure the cold and warm mixtures combine smoothly.
  6. Add the flour and baking powder, and mix well.
  7. Once combined, pour the mixture into the lined tray and spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes, or 25 minutes if you prefer them more gooey and soft.
  9. Leave to cool, slice into 8-10 squares and enjoy!
