Mary Berry’s Chocolate Brownies Easy Recipe (Warning – Very Tasty!!)

This really is an easy chocolate brownie recipe, that’s so moist, chewy and gooey. These homemade brownies will make you a very popular person!

This moist brownies recipe is from Mary Berry’s new book called “Classic”.

Unlike Mary Berry’s brownies, I have replaced the muscovado sugar with light brown sugar and added a touch of honey, only because I didn’t have it in the cupboard!

Muscovado sugar has a sweeter, wetter and nuttier flavour compared to my ingredients but the end cake still tastes fantastic.



  • 250g unsalted butter (cubed) plus extra for greasing
  • 350g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 300g soft brown sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 1 tbs honey
