Double Chocolate Brownie (gluten free)

This has got to be the most ‘asked for’ recipe by friends… it’s super simple, gluten-free and packed with chocolate (and ~4000 calories).

I originally found this recipe on the Healtheries website back in 2009, but since then it seems we both have modified it. They made it healthier by:

  • Replacing the oil with butter
  • Halving the number eggs
  • Halving the cups of sugar
  • Adding dried fruit/nuts

Whereas I made it chocolatier! Simply by:

  • Replacing the 4 squares of chocolate with a whole block of a chocolate!

Ingredients

  • 2 c caster sugar
  • 1 c Healtheries Simple Baking Mix (Gluten Free) / or Plain Flour
  • 2/3rd cup cocoa powder
  • 1 Block of dark chocolate
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup flavourless oil, eg rice bran, canola oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line an approx 22cm square cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients into one bowl (and add chopped up chocolate)
  3. Mix all liquids with an egg beater
  4. Pour liquids into the dry ingredients bowl, mix well, and pop in the oven for 45 mins!

Do not overcook – it should still be a bit fudgy in the centre, I tend to leave it in the tin for ~10 mins after baking.
