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!
