Mr. Chocolate Brownie

Do you want to bake something really nice for Easter? I have this amazing chocolate brownie for you. The original recipe comes from Jamie Oliver (I just exchanged the dried cherries for dried cranberries) and its the one I am always making. I believe you will be very satisfied πŸ™‚

Chocolate Brownie


  • 200 g quality dark chocolate (70%)
  • 250 g unsalted butter
  • 75 g dried sour cranberries
  • 50 g chopped nuts, optional
  • 80 g quality cocoa powder
  • 65 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 360 g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180Β°C/350Β°F. Line a 24cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Snap the chocolate into a large bowl, add the butter and place over a pan of simmering water, until melted, stirring regularly. Stir in the cranberries and nuts.
  3. Sift the cocoa powder and flour into a separate bowl, add the baking powder and sugar, then mix together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate, cherry and nut mixture and stir together well. Beat the eggs, then mix in until you have a silky consistency.
  5. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tin, and place in the oven for around 25 minutes. You don’t want to overcook them so, unlike cakes, you don’t want a skewer to come out clean – the brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.
