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!
