Exceedingly Gooey Chocolate Brownies

This is the recipe we followed today, from the ‘Top 100 Children’s Meals’ from the Good Housekeeping Institute (Thanks Abby for ledning me the book ;))

So here it goes (with our editing – there should have been coffee involved, and also vanilla [forgot to put in the vanilla])

Makes 24 



565g plain chocolate

225g butter, cut into pieces

3 eggs

225g caster sugar

75g self-raising sugar (though we used plain, coming to think of it :P)

175g walnut halves, chopped



  1. Grease and line a baking tin measuring 21 x 29cm across the top and 19 x 26cm across the base
  2. Using a very sharp knife, roughly chop 225g of the chocolate, and keep on one side. Break the remaining chocolate into small pieces. Place the pieces in a heatproof bowl with the butter. Stand the bowl over a pan of simmeringwater and heat gently until the chocolate melts, stirring. Leave to cool (we actually just melted the butter and chocolate in a pot!)
  3. Mix the eggs and sugar together in a bowl, then gradually beat in the chocolate mixture. Fold in the clour, walnuts (and vaniella) and chopped chocolate. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.
  4. Bake in an oven at 190 deg Celsius/Gas Mark 5 for 45minutes or until just firm to the touch in the centre. Leave to cool in the tin
  5. When the cake is completely cold, turn out on to a board and cut into 24 squares.
  6. EAT!
