My Famous Chocolate Orange Brownies

This is the one that most people ask me about.  It’s gooey, rich and full of flavour.  I started off with this Nigel Slater recipe and decided I could make it better…

From this...

From this… this!

  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 250g butter
  • 175g chocolate orange
  • 100g plain chocolate
  • 3 large eggs plus 1 extra egg yolk
  • 60g flour
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 80g mixed peel


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease a 23cm x 23cm baking tray.
  2. Break the chocolate into a bowl with the butter and melt together over a pan of simmering water, stirring constantly.
  3. When the chocolate and butter is fully melted, take off the heat, pour in the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  4. Sift togther the flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder.  Add about a third to the chocolate mix and stir until combined.  Add one of the eggs and mix in.  Continue to add flour mix and egg until it is all incorporated.
  5. Add the mixed peel and stir gently. Try not to over mix.
  6. Pour into the baking tray and cook for 30-40 mins until the top is spongy but a skewer will come away with a little mixture still on it.
  7. Leave to cool then cut up and serve. These will last a few days and taste better on the second day.
