One pot chocolate brownies


Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Serves: 9

* * *


  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 50g gluten free chocolate chips (optional)
  • Pure icing sugar, to serve
  • Raspberries and ice cream to serve

* * *


  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • Grease and line a 20cm square oven proof dish.
  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter, sugar, cocoa and water. Stir until completely melted then add eggs and vanilla. Finally stir in the almond meal.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared dish and cook in oven for 35-40 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool in the dish for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a cake rack. (I say this but it has never actually happened in our house – it always gets attacked the second its removed from the baking dish.)

Sprinkle with icing sugar, cut into squares and serve with raspberries and ice cream or on its own.


Tip: For a variation, try mixing the raspberries through the chocolate mixture before baking.
