Salthouse's Chocolate Brownie

POSTED ON: 16/03/2020

A scrumptious brownie recipe from the Salthouse Harbour Hotel's Head Chef.

"This is a recipe I’ve had for years, it’s one of my favourites. One of those that when you realise just what’s in it in what quantities you feel a bit indulgent eating some. It’s more-ish too, so it won’t simply be some. It will be lots. Which is fine – we all go to the gym/need treating every now and then, right? Why not eat it with ice cream whilst you’re at it? Shame not to!"

You will need a large bowl and a wooden spoon.


For twelve portions:

300G unsalted butter
660G caster sugar
5 medium free range eggs
150g white chocolate (finely chopped or chips/chunks)
140g dark cocoa powder
40g plain flour


1. Pre-heated the oven on 160°C

2. Melt the butter, either in a microwave or a pan.

3. Mix the butter and sugar to form a smooth paste.

4. Mix in the eggs one-by-one.

5. Add the white chocolate.

6. Sift in the cocoa powder and flower

7. Line a medium-sized baking tray with greaseproof paper and pour in the brownie mixture.

8. Cook for 20mins; remove from the oven when the brownie has a firm top or ‘crust’ and a slight wobble.

9. Allow to cool completely on a rack.
