Chocolate Concrete


Chocolate concrete was one of my most favourite desserts as a kid. I use to have this with custard at primary and secondary school and it was delicious! It's a great treat to take with your lunch - although, it's filled with sugar so if you're dieting - STAY AWAY :). 

My dad also use to make this at home as a treat for us all, and it was always an exciting time as myself and my brothers and sister LOVE it. If I can describe the taste, it's a mixture between a chocolate brownie and a shortbread biscuit. 

If you do choose to make this quick and tasty dish, I would suggest you eat it with either custard or ice-cream. However, you can eat it without anything and it's equally delicious and worth making. 

INGREDIENTS
  • 160g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 175g sugar (granulated)
METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 3/170'C or 160'C (fan oven)
  2. Melt the butter (This can be done either on the hob or microwave), add the sugar and mix well using a wooden spoon 
  3. Add the flour and cocoa and mix well until you have a stiff consistency
  4. Beat the egg and gently mix into the flour mixture
  5. Put the mixture into a greased 30cm x 18cm baking tray, gently press into the corners and flatten into the tin
  6. Sprinkle with a little water and place in the top half of the oven for 35 minutes
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sugar
  8. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then cut into required size pieces and place on a wire tray
Enjoy! x

  2. This stain does not cover surrenders in the concrete. Despite what might be expected, it will probably indicate absconds, even those you didn't see when the concrete was in its normal state.Stamped Concrete Pool Deck NH
