Sea Salt and Cayenne Brownies

I love sweet and salty flavours and the addition of a little heat makes these little beauties all the more interesting. These went down a treat at work! Its a quick and easy recipe that will impress. Add more cayenne if you like them hotter.


85g of plain chocolate – I used plain cooking chocolate
115g salted butter
250g caster sugar
2 large eggs
2 pinches of sea salt
85g plain flour
Half a tsp of cayenne pepper


Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water – make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water.

Mix the sugar and eggs well with a whisk. Then add the melted chocolate and butter mix – once its cooled a little.

In a separate bowl add the flour, salt and cayenne and mix it well so the salt and cayenne is evenly distributed.

Pour into a cake pan lined with greaseproof and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Its done when it is set on top but still a bit wobbly.

I put mine in the fridge to get it all nice and fudgey!
