Servings 16 brownies


  • 125 g (½ cups) unsalted butter
  • 125 g (¾ cups) dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs large
  • 70 g ( cups) caster sugar white granulated
  • 115 g (½ cups) soft light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60 g (½ cups) plain flour all-purpose
  • 30 g ( cups) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 50 g (¼ cups) milk chocolate chips
  • 125 g (1 ¼ cups) pecans (100g / 1 cup) chopped, (25g/ ¼ cup) whole
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt optional


  • Pre-heat oven: 180°C / 160°C (fan) / Gas 4 / 350°F
  • In a heatproof bowl, melt the butter and dark chocolate either in the microwave (30secs at a time) or over a double boiler, stirring until smooth.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, using an electric mixer beat the eggs and sugars. This should whip up to thick and creamy like a milkshake and can take roughly 3-8mins.
  • Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mousse, add in the vanilla extract and then gently fold together.
  • In a separate bowl, sieve the plain flour and cocoa powder, whisking together and then stirring in the chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, slowly folding in until only just combined.
  • Pour the brownie batter into a greased and lined 8-inch baking pan, then scatter the whole pecans on top.
  • Bake for 25-30mins, until papery and cracked on top, but with a slight wobble in the middle.
  • Allow the brownie to cool in the tin before removing and cut into squares.
