Recipe: Chocolate Fudge Brownie

So this is something my family have been asking me to make again for WEEKS. Now that I have, I thought I’d share the recipe with you.

Originally a Rachel Allen recipe from her book Food for Living, I’ve adapted this over the years to make it extra decadent and scrummy!

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 150g plain flour
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 150g butter
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs, beaten

Method

  1. Heat a pan of water until it’s boiling, and place a glass bowl over the top. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  2. Put the dark chocolate and the butter into the bowl, and melt together on a high heat. Once melted, lower the heat.
  3. Add the sugar a little at a time, making sure you scrape round the edges of the bowl to incorporate everything.
  4. Add the eggs a little at a time – I usually take at least six pours to do the eggs.
  5. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt, again taking care to scrape round the edge of the bowl to make sure everything is mixed in.
  6. Add in the milk chocolate and stir until melted, then add the white chocolate and do the same.
  7. Pour the mixture into a baking tin lined with parchment. At this point I sometimes, but don’t always, sprinkle some chocolate chips on the top before putting in the oven, but it’s honestly up to you.
  8. Bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes, until the edges have started to go a bit crispy and a knife comes away clean when stuck into the middle.
  9. Either leave to cool or eat immediately. If I make these during the day and have them as pudding in an evening, I warm them through a little and serve with a dollop of ice cream, but you can just have them as a nice afternoon snack with a cuppa!
