Gooey Chocolate and Walnut Brownies

Ingredients I used:
200g dark chocolate
180g butter
200g caster sugar
110g plain flour
3 eggs
50g walnuts
LOTS of chocolate chips

I melted the chocolate and butter together (the original recipe said to do this in a bowl over hot water, but who has time for that? I chucked it in a saucepan and made sure to keep stirring - less washing up too!). I then whisked up the sugar and eggs, stirred in the melted chocolate mixture (after it had cooled a bit) and chucked in my walnuts and chocolate chips - but I guess you could use any extras, white chocolate chunks would work well. It all went in the oven on 160 for about an hour - it took a long time to cook as the mixture made quite chunky brownies in my small square cake tin. They were still lovely and soft and fudgey in the middle, so that was good! Flowery flags optional, of course...

The best brownie dessert is a melty warm brownie with a big spoon of ice cream, YUM. 

I want to try melt in the middle chocolate puddings next, I'm not sure how hard it would be. Any recipes? What have you been baking recently?


  1. These look delicious! I've been baking lots of cookies recently as they're just so quick to throw together, but would love to do a big summer-y pavlova soon

    1. Chocolate shortbread biscuits are my favourite super quick throw together recipe! Pavlova sounds lovely, I hope it goes well!

  2. they look amazing!
