Author Sarah Coates from The Sugar Hit! book


  • 5 1/2 oz dark chocolate
  • 5 1/2 oz butter
  • 2/3 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (original recipe called for hazelnut meal but I didn’t have any on hand and they turned out delicious with just the all-purpose)

To serve:

  • 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream per person
  • 1 shot of espresso per person


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a saucepan over low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and whisk in the sugar, cocoa powder, and eggs until everything is combined. Next, stir in the flour until you have a grainy and glossy batter.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 18-20 minutes.
  4. To serve: cut a piece of brownie for every person serving and then top each piece with one big scoop of ice cream and an espresso shot.
