Heavenly Chocolate Brownies

This Nigella Lawson recipe is so is easy to make and by far my favourite. I have slightly fiddled the recipe to make it edible for people who can’t eat cows milk.


  • 175g Margarine or goats butter
  • 175g dark chocolate 
  • 3 large(ish) eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla essence 
  • 250g caster sugar (yes you really need that much)
  • 125g plain flour
  • 150g optional nuts / cherries / chocolate chips / whatever 

  • Method

  • Set the oven to gas 4 / 180oC / 350oF
  • Line the brownie tin with grease proof paper
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a pan on a low heat (mmm smells so good)


  • Beat together the eggs, sugar, vanilla 

  • Measure the flour out
  • Let the chocolate mixture cool in the pan for a bit, then mix in the egg/sugar        mixture, then the flour.

  • Slop into the tin

  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes until (according to Nigella) top paler but middle dark, dense and gooey.
    Eat your chocolate brownies and enjoy. I especially like them with a scoop of dairy free ice cream.
