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.

Love this recipe and the brownies are much lighter than brownies made with a standard plain flour. Very quick and easy to make. Make them for my sons maths teacher (who is gluten intolerant) and for my other sons rugby team...all love them!

In my son's class there are a number of children with allergies and every cake I made with gluten free flour was just dry and crumbly. I have to use what I can find in Germany - so I did not use Doves Farm. These were wonderful - very moist. I made 3 times the amount on a deep oven tray and cooked it for 45 minutes for school - the nuts were replaced with cookie chocolate drops due to allergies. They were so good I had to make them again for us - just 1 portion at 22 - 25 minutes is perfect.

Made these for a coeliac 5 year old daughter of a friend. they were fantastic. I used Doves Farm GF SR flour and added some white chocolate chips. I do not normally like brownies but these are something else! Do not know if they keep, these didn't!

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.
