  • 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.
