Soft Gooey Cookies with Chocolate Chunks
I'm slightly obsessed with cookies at the moment and these chunky chocolate cookies are making the obsession worse.
- 200 g Plain Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 150 g Light Brown Soft Sugar
- 0.25 tsp Salt
- 50 g Unsalted Butter
- 120 g Milk Chocolate
- 1 tbsp Sunflower Oil
- 1 Egg
Preheat the oven to 180C (170C fan assisted)
Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl.
Melt the butter, 60g of the chocolate and oil in a pan over a gentle heat. Add to the flour and mix until crumbly.
Once the mixture has cooled, add the egg to form a stiff dough.
Cover the dough and place in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes.
Remove from the fridge and divide the dough into 10 balls, roughly weighing 50g each.
Chop the other 60g of chocolate into large chunks and divide between the portions of dough. Form a ball from the dough, it's ok if some of the chocolate pokes out.
Place the balls on a lined baking tray with space between them to allow them to spread.
Cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow time for them to set on the baking tray before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Recipe Notes and Guidance
See Recipe Guidance for More Detail
- Don't omit the chilling time of the dough, it helps to stop the cookies spreading too much when you bake them.
- Leave the mixture to cool before adding the egg so you don't cook it.
- Preheat your oven well.
- Don't remove the cookies from the baking tray too soon, otherwise they will crumble.
