Prep: 45 minutes (including cooking) Cook: 30 minutes


For the brownies

  • 240g dark chocolate
  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 5g baking powder
  • 60g plain flour
  • 100g broken walnuts



  1. Heat oven up to 180°C. Line a deep-sided baking tray with greaseproof paper
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and butter in bowl over a bain-marie. Stir constantly until they have melted completely; take the bowl off the bain-marie and leave to cool slightly
  3. Using an electric mixer whisk the eggs and sugar until doubled in volume and well aerated. Now fold in the melted chocolate/butter mixture.
  4. Add the vanilla essence and then sieve the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Fold into your wet mixture carefully so as not to knock out any air.
  5. Finally fold in the broken walnuts and milk chocolate and pour into the mould.
  6. It should take approximately 30 minutes for the brownies to cook; check by pushing a cocktail stick into the tray. The stick should come out slightly wet
  7. Once done, pull out of the oven and cool down on a wire rack. Leave in the fridge to set in an airtight container.
