Brownie’s Honour

My friend Tara came over yesterday and we decided to bake chocolate brownies. No better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Warming the butter on the walk home!

We’re suckers for cute packaging.

All mixed in!

Voilà! Yummy chocolate brownies with white chocolate chunks!


350g dark chocolate (we used 70% cocoa)

375g unsalted butter

1 tbsp vanilla extract

6 medium size eggs

350g sugar (although we substituted half of this with granulated sweetener)

1 tsp salt

225g plain flour

300g white chocolate, chopped up into small pieces

[we used 2 tins, measuring approximately 17cm x 22cm x 5cm]


Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Line the baking pans with a small amount of butter. Melt the dark chocolate and butter together in a bowl over a saucepan of gently boiling water (on low heat – make sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water). In a large measuring jug or bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence together. Measure the flour and salt into another large bowl. When the chocolate and butter have melted into a smooth mixture, let them cool before stirring in the egg and sugar mix. Add the resultant mixture gradually into the flour until the mixture has a relatively thick and gooey consistency. Finally, mix in the white chocolate until evenly distributed. Spoon the mixture into the pans evenly and bake for about 25-30 minutes until the top is a slightly paler brown.
