“Rustic” Brownie (Gluten Free)

Don’t you just love the word “rustic”. It can turn a slightly burnt, uneven brownie into a work of art. Well, almost.

Usually I would take a recipe and adapt it, however as I am yet to get the knack of gluten free baking I haven’t deferred from the original recipe.

The recipe can be found on Dove Farm’s website, here. I can promise you it is worth a try!

The recipe calls for:

  • 150g plain chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 200g sugar
  • 100g gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs

The website also contains suggestions to swap the butter and eggs to make a vegan brownie!

The brownie was starting to catch on the edges and I could not find my cake tester to see whether it was cooked in the middle so I opted for a knife (Hence the rather fed up looking face in the middle of said brownie, soz!)

In order to make the delight above preheat your oven to Gas Mark 4 (or in my case 5 as I have a rubbish oven!), 180C, Fan 160C or 350F.

  1. Melt together the butter and chocolate (I melted mine over a pan of boiling water to ensure the chocolate did not burn) Once melted place to the side to allow to cool a little.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder.
  3. Then add the 3 eggs and beat together.
  4. Once combined add the cooled chocolate and butter mixture and stir in.
  5. Pour the mixture into your lined/greased baking tray and bake for 22-25 minutes.


I hope yours turns out slightly less rustic than mine!
