The Brownie Recipe, As Requested by Pippa Jay

Due to popular demand (okay it was just Pippa Jay, but this woman needs Brownies!) here is the slightly fudged (lol!) recipe for the Brownies. Happy baking 🙂

Chocolate Fudge Brownies


  • 100 g/4 oz plain chocolate drops
  • 2 large eggs
  • 125 g/5 oz butter (softened)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 50 g/2 oz self-raising flour
  • 25 g/1 oz plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 100 g/4 oz walnuts or pecans (chopped)

A 20cm/8″ square cake tin


Heat oven to gas mark 4/180 c. Grease and line the tin with baking parchment. Heat approx 2″ of water in a pan. Remove it from the heat and put the chocolate drops in a heatproof bowl and put this inside the pan. Stir until all the chocolate is melted.

Beat the eggs. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add the eggs a little at a time, beating the mixture inbetween.

Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the bowl and add the melted chocolate and mix well together.

Add your chopped nuts. I used walnuts and only about 50 g/2 oz as I thought 100 g/4 oz looked like too much once it was all chopped up.

Spoon the Brownie mixture into your tin, smoothing with the back of a spoon. Cook for 35 minutes. The top will have a slight crust, but they will be gooey in the middle. Leave them in the tin for about 20 minutes and then cut into big fat squares. This recipe should make 9 brownies.
