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. 


  • 160g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 175g sugar (granulated)
  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
