Bake up these magic brownies:


Follow this simple 9-step chocolate brownie recipe and enjoy the most delicious homemade brownies you’ve ever tasted!

1.    Preheat the oven to 180°C/160° Fan, 350°F, Gas 4.

2.    Bring a saucepan one third full of water to the boil and take off the heat.

3.    Put the butter and the chopped chocolate in a bowl and place it over the hot water to melt.

4.    Stir at intervals and when melted, leave to cool.

5.    Whisk the eggs and sugar together for 8-10 mins. It should increase in volume and become frothy.

6.    Pour in the melted chocolate mix and stir gently.

7.    Sieve and fold in the flour and cocoa powder. Add a tablespoon of golden syrup to enhance the moisture to your brownies.

8.    Pour mixture into an 8-inch tin lined with parchment paper and bake for 25-30 mins or until the crust on the top is cracking and middle is soft but not runny.

9.    Leave to cool before taking out of the tin.


•    Your brownies will taste even better if you keep them in an airtight container for 24 hours before eating. The question is…can you wait that long?!

•    You can store your leftover brownies (if there are any left!) in an airtight tin. They should last about 4 days if stored in the cupboard, and up to a week if stored in the fridge.  

•    If you’re looking for something to go nicely alongside your freshly baked homemade brownies, try a scoop or two of ice cream. Alternatively, hot fudge sauce, caramel sauce, or raspberry sauce are other popular favourites!
