  • Cracked Top TOP TIP to get the perfect ‘cracked top’ on a brownie, before we add all the other ingredients, we whisk our eggs and sugar for about 5 minutes until they’re pale yellow in colour and have doubled in size. To test you’ve got the perfect consistency, when you trace a figure of eight with your whisk it should remain on the surface for a few seconds.
  • Gooey Centre TOP TIP it’s all about how long you bake it, always slightly under do a brownie as they carry on cooking when you remove them from the oven. We find 27 minutes is perfect for a standard tray bake size, you still want to see a slight wobble in the centre.
  • A rich, silky chocolate flavour TOP TIP we have found the best way to achieve the most intense chocolate flavour is all down to the ingredients. We use the best quality 56% cocoa solids chocolate and a really dark, intense cocoa powder. The better quality the ingredients the better results you’ll get!

    There you have our top 3 tips on how we think you achieve the perfect brownie, we would love to know if you have any other suggestions or how you best love to enjoy your brownies!
