Ultimate Chocolate Brownie

Ultimate Chocolate Brownie | Gooey | Gluten Free | Vegetarian | Gift

As most of you know, I have been on a quest to find the Ultimate Chocolate Brownie recipe. (Thanks to The Ginger Bakers and their unbelievably incredible gluten free brownie for inspiring me!)

Over the last month or two I have literally made enough brownies to feed a small army. I know what you’re thinking, I’m sick of them now right? NEVER! I am happy in the knowledge that I am the proud owner of the greatest brownie recipe in the whole freakin’ universe. Not to blow my own trumpet or anything, but seriously. These are amazing and you have to try them! Oh, and by the way… did I mention they’re gluten free??

Just because I’m a caring sharing sort of person, I’m going to share my recipe with you lovely lot. So here is what you will need to make 16 pieces of Ultimate Chocolate Brownie heaven.

  • 200g Unsalted Butter, Room Temp
  • 250g Dark Chocolate (good quality)
  • 100g Milk Chocolate (good quality)
  • 3 Eggs, Room Temp
  • 250g Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 50g Doves Farm Gluten Free Self Raising Flour *

 

Essential Equipment

  • 20cm/8″ Square Baking Tin
  • Electric Stand Mixer or Electric Hand Whisk

* If you don’t require a gluten free recipe, regular self raising flour will work just fine.

 

Ultimate Chocolate Brownie Recipe

Preheat the oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C.

Firstly, grease and line the base and two sides of the baking tin. (The baking paper will act as handles to lift out the brownie once cooked & cooled. Using a loose bottomed tin like I did would also help.)

In a glass bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, break in the dark & milk chocolate and add the butter. Gently melt, stirring occasionally. Then remove from the heat, stir until smooth & shiny and allow to cool whilst we move onto the eggs.

Either in an electric stand mixer with the whisk attachment or using a large glass bowl & an electric hand whisk, crack in all 3 eggs and whisk for at least 3-4 minutes on a high setting. They should end up pale in colour and very light.

Add in the muscovado sugar & vanilla extract and whisk again until evenly blended but still fairly light in texture.

In thirds, pour the chocolate into the egg mixture and gently fold in using a spatula.

Once all the chocolate is incorporated, sift in the flour and fold in just until you can’t see anymore flour.

Baking

Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the centre of the preheated oven for approx 30-35 minutes. There should still be a little movement in the centre.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. (Don’t worry, any cracking will mostly sink in once cooled.)

Don’t attempt to remove your Ultimate Chocolate Brownie from the tin and cut until it’s completely cooled. Trust me, it needs to be cool or it will just get incredibly messy! I assure you it’s worth the wait.

So once they’re completely cooled, remove the Ultimate Chocolate Brownie from the tin, peel off the baking paper & cut into 16 devilishly indulgent slices of heaven!

And there you have it. The worlds most incredible brownies. The taste is just so remarkably divine and chocolatey and that texture… oh my word, just so soft & gooey and not at all like those horrifically disappointing things you get in the supermarkets. There’s no dry, cakey brownies in this kitchen! Only exquisitely rich and indulgent ones 🙂

You could even turn them into beautifully unique gifts by simply piping on a little swirl of chocolate buttercream frosting and topping with a sugar decoration of your choosing…

    So I followed your recipe to a T despite having misgivings about the small amount of flour. Currently I have a liquid goop mess. What have I done wrong? We even have exactly the same pans!

    1. Honestly? I’m not sure without knowing exactly what you did. Did you let it cool completely before trying to remove from the tin? Or even popping it in the fridge to set it a little more?

      1. Sam says:

        Yup. It was liquid at the 35min mark so I left it for I think 1 hour total. Let it sit until completely cooled and still quite a mess to deal with removing from the pan 😛

        Trying to save at the moment. Just thought you might have some suggestions 🙂

        1. I actually tend to bake this the night before it is needed and leave it in the tin overnight to firm up completely before attempting to remove and slice. Even after an hour it would still be warm in the middle. Patience is probably the answer with this one – or even incorrect oven temperature/placing it too low in the oven? (Apologies for the delay in responding, I have been travelling back from holiday all day!)

    These look like the perfect chewy brownie! I have a weakness for baked goods, brownies in particular lol. If it wasn’t for my love of BBQ I would have been a baker. 🙂

  7. erik ivy says:

    Looks like an awesome recipe! Thanks for sharing. I’m not on any kind of restrictive diet so if I want to use conventional flour and sugar, are there any other changes that may be necessary? If I need to use what you have specified, I don’t mind doing it, but I’d prefer not having to invest in some atypical ingredients.

    1. Thank you! And no, regular self raising flour works just as well 🙂 x

  8. Cucina Amore says:
