These gluten-free chocolate brownies will go down a treat with everyone. Great for dessert, with a coffee or as a treat anytime.

They are delicious eaten on the day they are baked, but even better the next day. In the unlikely event of leftovers, they will keep for a few days in an airtight container.

Make sure to use gluten-free baking powder for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. The carbohydrate content will vary a little depending on the chocolate used. I used a mixture of 70% dark chocolate and milk chocolate.

 

Steps

1
Done

Line a 20 cm/8 inch square cake tin with baking parchment.

Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/gas mark 3.

2
Done

Melt the butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water.

3
Done

When the butter and chocolate have melted remove the bowl from the heat and allow to cool a little.

4
Done

Stir in the brown sugar and vanilla extract. Stir until the sugar melts. Leave to cool a little.

5
Done

Break the eggs into a small bowl and whisk to break up the yolk. Add the eggs, ground almonds, baking powder and the chopped nuts into the chocolate mixture.

6
Done

Pour into the lined tin and spread into the corners.

Bake for about 30 minutes, until firm on top but still a little wobbly.

7
Done

Leave to cool before carefully lifting the cake from the tin. Peel the parchment from the sides and cut into 16 pieces.

Arrange on a plate or board and sprinkle with the icing sugar if using.

Enjoy!
