My Brownies with “Cadbury Fruit and Nut” Chocolate Recipe

Greetings from a very cold Ankara!

Hope you all had a lovely start to 2017 πŸ™‚ I’m currently in the middle of my finals at university, so it is certainly a very busy way to start the year. Nevertheless, I decided to bake for the first time this year on Tuesday, so I hope you will enjoy this slightly unconventional brownie recipe.

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed I tweeted a while ago that I was in the process of making my own brownie recipe. Now, there are numerous amazing brownie recipes, so I wanted to experiment and use something else – fruit and nut chocolate. In my case, I had a bar of Cadbury fruit and nut chocolate lying around from the time I bought some from Duty Free when traveling, so this is what I used. Generally, you will not find Cadbury chocolate in Ankara, but I have not yet tried out this recipe with something more accessible, such as Milka.

The recipe is quite basic and requires very little time and effort. Overall, it does not take longer than 10-15 minutes (including the preparation, such as pre-heating the oven or buttering the baking tin). I made a very short video of the baking process, which you can watch below, but do keep in mind that I used my cellphone to film and had to use one hand πŸ˜€

The texture of the batter, including the color, appears like caramel. Also, the brownies will have chunks of nuts and fruits (primarily raisins), so it’s a nice little twist to the regular dark chocolate brownies. However, the recipe is still a work-in-progress, so if you try it out and have any suggestions, feel free to tweet me or comment!

The Recipe:15909183_10154992368714575_627917638_o

  • 150 gr. margarine butter
  • 160 gr. brown sugar
  • 160 gr. flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 85 gr. Cadbury fruit and nut chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  1. Melt the butter with the chocolate; there will be chunks of nuts and fruits, so once the butter is completely melted, it’s ready.
  2. Mix the butter with the brown sugar.
  3. Beat in 2 eggs.
  4. Add flour, vanilla, and salt.
  5. Pour the batter into a baking tin and bake at 175 degrees Celsius for about 30-35 minutes.

Lastly, these brownies do not rise a lot (considering how I do not add baking powder or soda), so you can serve them as bite-size brownies.

Hope you have a great week, stay tuned for more posts very soon! πŸ™‚

Until next time,

– Zi
