Chocolate Brownies

Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie – Ingredients

250g good quality (60% cocoa) dark chocolate

200g butter

2 large eggs

300g caster sugar

100g wheat and gluten free plain flour (we use Dove’s farm)

1 tsp xanthan gum (an essential for gluten free baking – get it at Ocado / Amazon)

1/2 tsp salt

25 g cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting if you like


 1. Preheat the oven to 160°C and grease and line an 8″ square baking tin.

2. Melt the chocolate and butter together – either in a pan over a bain marie or in the microwave – slowly and steadily so they don’t burn.

3. Using a hand-held electric mixer / kenwood stand mixer, mix the eggs & sugar together for about 5 minutes until it becomes thick, creamy and pale in colour.

4. Gradually add the melted chocolate and butter until well combined. Gently fold the flour, xanthan gum, salt and cocoa powder. Spoon the mixture into the lined baking tin, making sure it is evenly distributed, and level with the back of a metal spoon.

5. Bake for 30 minutes, but no longer – you want them still gooey in the middle & they will firm up as they cool.

6. Leave the brownies to cool and then cut into small squares.
