Recipe of the Month – Perfect Gingerbread

Brownie recipe

A traditional brownie MUST be chewy and dense with a full-on chocolate flavour. Too many people overcook their brownies and manage to lose this. Using good quality chocolate is a must.

Ingredients:

  • 200g Good quality dark chocolate, chopped
  • 175g Unsalted butter
  • 325g Caster Sugar
  • 130g Plain Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Baking tray 33cm x 23cm x 5cm high, lined with greaseproof paper.
