The Blue Train’s Dark Chocolate Brownie Recipe



  1. Preheat your oven to 165 degrees Celsius. Grease and then flour a 20cm baking tray and set aside.
  2. Place 235 grams of dark chocolate, 60 grams of butter, 200 grams of sugar and the olive oil in a small saucepan over a low heat. Stir the contents until all the ingredients have melted to form a smooth consistency.
  3. Once the chocolate mixture is cool, pour the mixture into a bowl, then whisk in both your eggs, one at a time until the chocolate mix is well blended.
  4. Stir in vanilla extract or essence, 90 grams of cake flour and ¼ teaspoon of salt to your chocolate mix.
  5. Add 60 grams of dark chocolate and the chopped nuts into the chocolate mixture and mix thoroughly.
  6. Once complete, pour your chocolate mix into the greased and floured baking tray and bake for 38 - 40 minutes.
  7. To check that your dark chocolate brownie is fully baked, insert a toothpick into the brownie, it should come out slightly sticky when ready.
  8. Once baked, place your dark chocolate brownie on a wire rack to cool. Cut the brownie into rectangular shapes and serve with fresh berries and dust the dark chocolate brownie rectangles with icing sugar.
