Mary Berry’s Chocolate Brownies
You can’t beat a delicious, indulgent chocolate brownie – and these are amazing! They have that perfect thin crisp layer on top, then fudgey delicious brownie with pops of chocolate chips inside. I usually like to play around with recipes and change them up a bit, but wouldn’t change a thing about these!
- 275 g (1 1/4 cups) softened butter
- 375 g (1 7/8 cups) caster sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 75 g (5/8 cups) cocoa powder
- 100 g (3/4 cups) self raising flour
- 100 g (2/3 cups) dark chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/gas 4.
- Line the base and sides of a 30cm x 23cm x 4cm traybake or roasting tin with baking paper. Grease the tin and then line it with the paper, pushing it neatly into the corners.
- Measure all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a hand-held electric mixer until evenly blended.
- Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, scraping the sides of the bowl with a plastic spatula to remove all of it. Spread the mixture gently to the corners of the tin and level the surface with the back of the spatula.
- Bake for 40–45 minutes, until the brownies have a crusty top and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes if the mixture is browning too much.
- Allow the brownies to cool in the tin and then cut into 24 squares. Store in an airtight tin.
