The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Recipe

I was convinced I’d shared my original, go-to gluten free chocolate brownie recipe on the blog but it turns out, I have only ever published my Chocolate Orange brownie recipe, so I thought it was about time I got this recipe written down for you all.

These brownies are literally famous amongst my friends and family with a new batch constantly in high demand and I actually forget how good they are until I have one and I quickly remember why everyone goes so crazy for them.

The ingredients list is short and basic and the method is so simple, you literally can’t go wrong with these!

Ingredients 

200g Galaxy Milk Chocolate

200g Stork Baking Butter

90g Plain Gluten Free Flour

50g Cocoa Powder

3 Large Eggs

280g Golden Caster Sugar

100g White Chocolate Chips (80g for mixture)

Method 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees (fan) and line two 20cm square baking tins with grease proof paper
  2. Weigh out all your ingredients, putting your chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl, your cocoa powder and flour in a small mixing bowl, your sugar in a larger mixing bowl and your eggs in a separate bowl or jug
  3. Get a small pan of water and get it simmering, putting your bowl of butter and chocolate on top to melt. Keep stirring this as it melts to stop it from burning. If it appears to split, don’t worry.
  4. Once your chocolate and butter are melted together, remove the bowl from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature or slightly warmer
  5. One by one, add your eggs to the bowl of sugar, using an electric whisk to stir the mixture between each egg. Once all three eggs are added, continue to whisk until blended and a little bubbly.
  6. Once your eggs and sugar are blended, pour in your melted chocolate and butter and mix in with a spoon
  7. Once that is mixed, you can now sift in your flour and cocoa powder before mixing that in with your spoon
  8. You can now add 80g of your white chocolate chips and give everything a final mix together with your wooden spoon.
  9. Pour your mixture equally between the two tins and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips across the two. Place in the oven, ideally on the same shelf if possible. Cook for 20 minutes to start with.
  10. After 20 minutes, I tend to lower the oven temperature to around 140 degrees and leave in for another 5-minutes
  11. Your brownies should now be done, so remove from the oven but leave to cool in the tin for 30-45 minutes
  12. At this point, remove from the tins using the grease proof paper but leave to cool for another hour or so before dusting with icing sugar and cutting into pieces.

These brownies have the perfect consistency of being super soft and gooey in the middle and a little harder on top and the chewy, crispy edges are honestly irresistible.

Easy and classic, what’s not to love?

Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Brownie Recipe

Before you start rolling your eyes because you’re gluten free and you just heard the word ‘brownie’, hear me out!

I get it, you’re fed up of bog-standard brownies. They’re samey, they’re overly simple and they’re just not filling you with excitement anymore but I guarantee my new chocolate orange brownies will reignite that love for the humble brownie.

Us gluten free foodies need to keep brownies fresh and interesting because let’s be honest, we end up eating a lot of them and I think adding orange makes for the perfect flavour combination!

Check out how to make these delicious gluten free chocolate orange brownies in under an hour:

Ingredients

  • 200g Galaxy Milk Chocolate
  • 200g Stork Baking Spread
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 280g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 50g Cocoa Powder
  • 150g Plain Gluten Free Flour
  • The Juice of 2 Oranges
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 1 Bar of Orange Flavoured Chocolate

Method 

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees (Fan) and line two square baking tins with grease proof paper
  2. Break up your 200g of chocolate and 200g of baking spread and put in a bowl. Place bowl over a pan of simmering water and slowly melt together
  3. Sift your flour and cocoa powder into a bowl and mix together quickly
  4. Once your chocolate and butter are melted, take off the heat to cool to room temperature
  5. In your main mixing bowl, add your golden caster sugar. Crack your 3 eggs in a separate small bowl. Pour the eggs into the sugar, one yolk at a time, allowing some of the white to go in too. Whisk with an electric whisk between each yolk to combine. Once all the eggs are in, mix until a light, almost bubbly consistency.
  6. Add your room temperature chocolate and butter mixture into the eggs and sugar and stir until equally mixed in.
  7. Next, fold in your flour and cocoa powder.
  8. You now need to squeeze the juice of 2 oranges in to the mixture and mix in. Once the juice is added, add the zest of one orange and mix in.
  9. Distribute the mixture equally across your two trays and evenly smooth out.
  10. Break your orange flavoured chocolate into pieces and press into the mixture, distributing them evenly.
  11. Pop in the oven for 25 minutes.
  12. Remove when cooked and leave to cool in the trays for a couple of hours before topping with icing sugar and orange zest and cutting into around 18 pieces.

These chocolatey and zesty brownies are a refreshing change to your standard brownie and are bound to reignite your love for a brownie!
