Peanut Butter & Jam Brownies

I was hesitant to share this recipe as it is ridiculously easy and I wanted it to be my secret. Those who follow my escapades on twitter will know that I am constantly battling with my want to be skilled at baking. I quite simply am not, but it doesn't stop me trying. But produce these babies to your friends and family and they will think you are a top notch baker.

I've made many recipes down through the years, this one is the best. I promise you that.

Have a look at the ingredients below. You stick in a bowl and mix them. Yes ,you read right. No creaming, no sifting, no folding or anything fiddly. 

Like I say, ridiculous.

 Peanut Butter & Jam Brownies
Preheat oven to 170 Degrees
150g softened butter
75 g Self Raising Flour
5 eggs
200g Cadburys Drinking Chocolate
1 Tablespoon Cocoa 
175 g Dark Brown Muscavado Sugar
150 g Peanut butter (smooth or Crunch, doesn't matter)
2 tablespoons of Raspberry Jam

(you could mix through a handful of peanuts, or even raspberries in at the end)

Mix well. Bake for 40 minutes in a greased silicone square. There should be a slight wobble in the centre, but not too much. Allow to go completely cold before removing from the square and cut into squares. Dust with icing sugar and serve with a smug smile.


  1. Anyone with a nut allergy can bite me - I'm making those, they sound brilliant. I love the stuff you come up with.

  2. Sounds amazing! What size tin did you use??
