Our famous decadent chocolate brownie recipe!

If you’ve been to Social Cooking, you’ll know that we often serve dessert as a thank you for your custom and your hard work! In recent months, that dessert is our home-made, decadent chocolate brownie, often served with whipped cream, and fresh berries or berry coulis. And the number of requests we’ve had for the recipe for said brownie have been over whelming!

So here you are. The recipe for our famous (at Social Cooking) decadent chocolate brownie. And for your information, this is served at all our three hour events – Masterchef, Mystery Box Challenge and our Recipe Challenge.

Social Cooking’s Decadent Chocolate Brownie


70g cocoa powder
440g brown sugar
1tsp baking powder
100g plain flour
½ tsp sea salt
230g butter
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 160⁰C. Grease and line a 30cm x 20cm slice tin.

Sift together cocoa powder, brown sugar baking powder and flour. Set aside.

Melt together butter and sea salt. Cool slightly, then add to the dry mix with the eggs, vanilla extract and chopped chocolate. Pour mix into lined tin and bake for 1 hour or until set. Remove from oven and leave in tin to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing.

Serve warm with dusted with icing sugar, alongside whipped cream and fresh berries.

Note: Our brownie is made for us especially by Bespoke Food Service. Your can find them on Facebook, and they might be kind enough to make a slab for you (if you can’t be bothered baking this yourself!)
