Danny's Chocolate Blocks

Danny Jack Recipe Corner Part.2


250g Dark Chocolate
250g Caster Sugar or Dark Muscavado Sugar
250g Butter
110g Plain Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 pinch of Salt
3 Eggs
1 handful of un-salted Nuts (e.g Walnuts, Hazelnuts and Pecans)
Extra Chocolate Chunks are optional.


1. Preheat the oven to 170C, 325F or gas mark 3 and grease an oven proof dish or baking tray with butter.
2. Sit a bowl over a pan of boiling water and melt the Butter and Dark Chocolate in it. Be very careful not to get any water in the bowl.
3. Sieve the dry ingredients (Flour, Baking Powder and pinch of Salt) into a bowl.
4. Whisk the Eggs in a seperate mixing bowl and slowly stir in the Sugar. Beat in the melted Butter and Chocolate mixture and then gently fold in the dry ingredients.
5. Finally, stir in any Nuts or Chocolate Chunks and pour the mixture onto greased tray or dish and bake for approx 45 minutes.

To test if it's ready stick a knife in and if it comes out clean then it's done. Leave to cool for a few minutes then sit back, relax and treat yourself to a big slice of Brownie with a lovely cuppa tea.
