Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie

Doves Farm recipe

Our recipe

When you make these delicious squidgy chocolate brownies nobody will guess they are gluten free. As they are quite rich slice into 12/16 small pieces. This is one of our most often requested gluten free chocolate brownie recipes that first appeared on our Gluten Free Plain Flour pack back in 2000. If you prefer more cake-like brownies we suggest you bake them for up to 45 minutes. The recipe also works well if you wish to reduce the sugar content.

These are amazing. I omit the nuts and add 50g chocolate chips. They melt a bit but add extra yummyness. I find these are a bit soft to eat the same day as making them (maybe because of the extra chocolate!) so we have them the next day. They keep moist for a few days. Lovely!

After reading some other reviews, we have decided to put forward a suggestion. Instead of using gluten free plain white flour and baking powder, we used gluten free self raising flour. It was much easier and still tasted wonderful! Therefore if you do not have baking powder or gluten free plain white flour you can still make the recipe and not miss out on these fantastic brownies!

These are very good. I only had 100g chocolate so did 85g flour/15g cocoa powder and used dark muscovado sugar (150g) and they came out delicious.

This is a very easy recipe, but the cooking time is far too long: hence 4 stars rather than 5. After seeing other reviews saying theirs were overcooked, I baked my first batch for 35 minutes but even then they turned out more like cake. I baked the second batch for 30 minutes and they were better, but I think 25 mins would be about right if you want that lovely fudgy texture. I reduced the sugar to 150gr and added walnuts to one batch and chopped dark chocolate to the other. Both worked very well.

Hi Maggie, many thanks for your feedback. We test-baked the recipe again and we too like squidgy and have reduced the cooking time to 22/25 minutes. We also found the recipe works with less sugar. Happy baking! Doves Farm

I substituted glace cherries for the nuts, as I cant eat nuts. I also sustituted 50 g of white choc chips for 50g of dark chocolate, as that was what I had in the cupoard. Super easy recipe,came out perfectly and impressed my friends,particularly the 2 Americans who didn't believe it was GF and also don't believe British people can cook American food!
