Chocolate chunk cookies

I took this recipe from a free booklet in The Guardian 2007, the original recipe listed double-quantities, but I've reduced it as I can only manage to bake 12-13 of these at a time with my baking trays.



  • 112g unsalted butter


  • 190g light soft brown sugar


  • 25g caster sugar


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1 egg


  • 175g plain flour


  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda


  • 25g cocoa powder


  • 150g broken chocolate pieces




  • Oven temperature 170°C (150°C for fan-assisted)





    1. Beat together butter, brown sugar, caster sugar & vanilla extract until light and fluffy (save time and whack it in a food processor).


    2. Add the egg.


    3. Sift the flour, bicarb and cocoa powder together and add to food processor (or bowl, if you're feeling strong fore-armed).


    4. Stir through your chocolate chunks.


    5. Prepare a baking tray (cover in greaseproof paper, or grease it)


    6. Scoop ice-cream scoop sized blobs onto the tray, spaced evenly apart.


    7. Cook for 12-14mins until puffed up and coloured at the edges.


    8. Remove, cool & eat!
