Its not hard to get everyone smiling over a plate of brownies. Fruit and nuts go so well together, but for an adult treat, try adding a dash of your favourite liqueur. Whatever combination of fillings you decide to choose, a perfect brownie should be firm on the outside but still moist and almost gooey on the inside. So when you check with a skewer to see if ready, it should come out still slightly sticky. If stored in an airtight container, these should last up to a week, though theyre so good, we doubt they last that long!


  • 250g chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 250g butter, melted
  • 5 eggs
  • 350 dark muscovado sugar
  • 150g/5oz plain flour, sifted
  • 4 x pieces stem ginger (from a jar), chopped

Try a combination of dark, milk and white chocolate. Or use flavoured chocolate for an added kick of flavour.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Fan 160C/Gas Mark 4. Line a 30cm x 20cm cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Very gently on a low heat melt the chocolate in the microwave in short 30secound bursts. Once melted, add the melted chocolate and stir to combine until glossy.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar using an electric whisk until pale, fluffy and thick.
  4. Add the chocolate mixture, whisking again until smooth and well combined.
  5. Fold in the flour carefully. Add the stem ginger and fold in, then pour the brownie batter into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 20-25mins. Cool then but into 18 squares.

I thought this recipe would be really easy, but it proved a challenge! My largest bowl was too small to hold all the ingredients so I had to use a large saucepan to fold in the flour. It took much longer to bake than 25 minutes. I left it in for 45 and not convinced it's baked all the way through. A small niggle, in step 1 it states to mix the melted chocolate into the melted chocolate, but it should read butter.

I used this recipe as a guide line and I made some of the best brownies I've ever tasted. Add the butter to the chocolate once melted. I used grated ginger instead of stem from a jar. The chocolate I used was dark with a bar of dark ginger chocolate. The mix gives a great depth. Brilliant!
