How to bake the best brownies

Just incase you wanted to taste the delicious brownies, that I made at Christmas, yourself!

The recipe I ALWAYS use is from Mary Berry’s aga cookbook, but with a few slight amendments.
Also don’t panic if you don’t have an aga, they work just as well in the oven!


275g (10oz) butter, softened
375g (13oz) caster sugar
4 large eggs
75g (3oz) cocoa powder
100g (4oz) self-raising flour
100g (4oz) plain chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding the chocolate chips last by mixing them in by hand. Spoon mixture into a medium sized tray bake or roasting tin that has been lightly greased or lined with tin foil and greased.

either: bake for 20 – 25 minutes in the top oven then move down to the bottom oven for a further 30 – 40 minutes
Or: bake for 20 -25 minutes in top oven then cover with tin foil and bake for a further 20 minutes

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C,and bake brownies for 40 mins, checking them after 20. If the top appears to be turning dark quickly or is too dark and runs the risk of burning, cover with tin foil until they are baked through.


If you wanted Orange Chocolate Brownies, just like the ones I made for Christmas, you add a generous splash of fresh orange juice to the mix and some grated orange zest.
Then once the brownies are half baked you grate more orange zest on top for aesthetic appearance and it adds to the orangey taste.


p.s. the mixture is as yummy as the actual thing!
