I am not getting paid for anything I say, do or advertise, which is a shame, because I could be very rich.
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
112g unsalted butter
190g light soft brown sugar
25g caster sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
175g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
25g cocoa powder
150g broken chocolate pieces
Oven temperature 170°C (150°C for fan-assisted)
together butter, brown sugar, caster sugar & vanilla extract until
light and fluffy (save time and whack it in a food processor).
Add the egg.
Sift the flour, bicarb and cocoa powder together and add to food processor (or bowl, if you're feeling strong fore-armed).
Stir through your chocolate chunks.
Prepare a baking tray (cover in greaseproof paper, or grease it)
