Many of you told us just how much you were enjoying the Ginger and Blackberry Chocolate Brownie Recipe we posted from Alex Hollywood’s My Busy Kitchen earlier this week and now we have another delicious treat from the wife of Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood – her Best-ever Brownies.
Rich in irresistible dark chocolate, they’re absolutely divine and will delight any chocoholic. You can find this recipe – and many, many more – in My Busy Kitchen, which is available from us for just £6.99 (a saving of £18 off the RRP).

Best-ever Brownies recipes
Makes approximately 24
- 100g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
- 150g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
- 175g caster sugar
- 75g light muscovado sugar
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 100g plain flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- ½ tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas mark 4. Butter a shallow 20cm x 28cm brownie tin and line it with greaseproof paper.
Put the butter, chocolate, both sugars and the syrup into a saucepan and heat gently until blended. Set aside to cool.
Put the eggs and vanilla into a bowl and beat together until frothy. Gently whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture.
Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into the chocolate mixture and fold together very gently until well combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 20–25 minutes, until it looks browned and starts to come away from the sides of the tin.
Allow to cool, then turn out and cut into small squares – trying your best not to eat the whole lot in one go!
