  • dark chocolate 200g, broken into chunks
  • milk chocolate 100g, broken into chunks
  • butter 250g
  • soft light brown sugar 325g
  • malted milk powder or Horlicks 5 tbsp
  • eggs 4 large
  • plain flour 150g
  • cocoa powder 50g
  • sea salt flakes a couple of pinches
  • ice cream to serve


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180c/160c fan/gas 4 and line a 20 × 30cm baking tin with baking parchment. Put the chocolate, butter, sugar and malt powder in a saucepan and gently melt together, stirring occasionally. Lift off the heat and leave for 5 minutes before the next stage.

  • Step 2

    Beat the eggs, one by one, into the chocolate mixture with a wooden spoon. Sieve over the flour and cocoa and stir in. Scrape into the tin and scatter with a couple of pinches of sea salt flakes – just a little. Bake for 30 minutes on a middle shelf, then cool completely before cutting into squares, or chill overnight for slightly firmer brownies. Serve with a scoop of ice cream.
