Seriously dangerous chocolate brownies

Brownies!A while ago I promised several of you that I would share the recipe for my chocolate brownies. I acquired this recipe from a friend, who informs me it is a Sainsbury’s recipe which is freely available online, but I have tweaked it slightly (mainly added more chocolate…) It is a dangerous recipe because the brownies are dangerously bad for you but dangerously tasty. The killer ingredient/bit that makes this recipe better than any other is the lumps of white chocolate that also go into it … Let me know how you find it!


225g butter
200g luxury plain chocolate
100g luxury milk chocolate
4 medium size eggs
325g golden caster sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla essence
150g plain flour
200g luxury white chocolate, chopped


Preheat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, gas mark 4. Line a cake tin approximately 20cm square & 6cm deep,with greaseproof paper. Melt the butter, as well as the plain and milk chocolate together in a large bowl and allow to cool a little. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence. Once the chocolate has cooled, whisk in the egg mixture then fold in the flour & luxury white chocolate. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin & bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25 – 30 minutes until the top is crisp & pale & the centre is almost set. Allow to cool in the tin then cut into 20 squares.
