Kim’s Wheat-Free chocolate brownies

These exceptionally good, moist chocolate brownies, (brought to you by Kim’s cakes), offer an organic, wheat-free recipe.



125g (5oz) dark chocolate (72% cocoa solids)

125g (5oz) butter

2 tbsp water

165g caster sugar

125g chickpea flour

1 tsp baking powder

75g (3oz) walnuts, chopped

2 eggs, beaten

15g chocolate chips



Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan oven 160°C, Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 23cm (9 inch) square cake tin.

Break the chocolate into a saucepan and add the butter and water. Heat gently, stirring until melted, then cool. Stir in the sugar. Sift the flour and baking powder together, then fold into the chocolate mixture with most of the walnuts. Add the eggs and stir everything together gently. Tip into the prepared tin, level the surface and sprinkle the remaining walnuts and chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
