Baking isn’t my strong suit – but I do know how to make an absolutely delicious chocolate brownie. These Double Chocolate + Almond Brownies barely made it past the day of baking. Naughty, moreish, fudgy and divine. 



  • 200g Unsalted Butter
  • 200g Dark Chocolate
  • 75g Plain Flour
  • 50g Cocoa Powder
  • 25g Ground Almonds
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 375g Light Brown Sugar
  • 50g chopped milk chocolate
  • 50g flaked almonds


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees
  2. Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper
  3. Chop the unsalted butter into cubes, and break up the dark chocolate pieces.
  4. Add the chocolate and butter to a heatproof bowl. Set the bowl over a pan of water and heat the water over medium heat. Stir the mixture occasionally as it begins to melt
  5. In a stand mixer, whisk together the eggs and light brown sugar. Whisk on high until the mixture becomes pale and doubles in volume. This should take about 8 minutes.
  6. In a bowl, sieve together flour, cocoa powder, ground almonds and baking powder and set aside. 
  7. Slowly pour the melted chocolate mixture, into the egg and sugar mixture and gently fold together in a figure of eight motion. 
  8. Add the flour mix to the eggy chocolate mix, through a sieve and fold together. It will be quite dry at first, but don’t worry about that. It will soon become fudgy and delish. 
  9. Fold in finely chopped milk chocolate and flaked almonds.
  10. Transfer the mixture to the baking tin and smooth out. 
  11. Bake for 18 – 23 minutes, checking after 18 minutes. Piece with a skewer to check. The skewer should come out with a few crumbs. 
  12. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before transferring to a cooling rack or chopping board to chop up. 
  13. Add a sprinkling of sea salt and some melted milk chocolate if you wish. 


Melting the chocolate + butter: You can do this in the microwave if you prefer. Add the butter and chocolate to a microwave-safe container. Heat at 30-second intervals until the butter and chocolate are completely melted.
