These are some cookies I’ve made several times and would class them as almost ‘cake cookies’ which have an amazing soft and gooey texture, definitely one for you to try! I originally got this recipe off BBC Good Food (a fantastic website for anyone looking for recipes) but I have altered it a bit and I can’t seem to find that original recipe.
Time: Around an hour for me but could easily be less if you put more batches than I did in at once and also aren’t as slow as I am in the kitchen!
Serves: Up to 25, depends on how big you want to make each cookie
300g brown sugar
300g self raising flour
2 tsp vanilla extract
80g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
100-300g chocolate (the amount can vary as it depends on how much you like; it can be chocolate chips or pieces of a bar)
1. Preheat your oven to 180 and make sure you have some lined baking trays for later
2. In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy
3. Beat in the vanilla extract and also the eggs
4. In a separate bowl (I did it in the weighing scales bowl) sift the flour, the cocoa and the baking powder all together.
5. Add this mix to the creamed mix in stages, making sure to mix it well together
6. Fold the chocolate into the mixture until it is all combined
7. Spoon the mixture onto a baking tray and (giving it a bit of help) let it drop off the spoon into a dollop which you can prod around to make sure its a nice circle. The size of the cookie depends on what you want yours like, you could even make just one cookie! I made just over twenty and used a dessert spoon to create the ‘dollops’. Make sure you leave enough space between each cookie as they do spread.
8. Bake in your oven for 12 minutes, when you have taken them out, they should still be soft so leave them to cool completely before moving them.
9. Enjoy your delicious cookies!
I hope some of you try this out, they really do taste amazing.
