  • 200 g 70% cocoa chocolate roughly chopped, 7 oz
  • 50 g coconut oil 1/4 cup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 60 g brown sugar 1/3 cup
  • 65 g white sugar 1/3 cup
  • 40 g cocoa 1/3 cup, not Dutch processed
  • tsp ½ bicarb soda baking soda
  • 200 g 70% cocoa chocolate chopped, 7 oz
  • zest of 1 orange


  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius (340 Fahrenheit). Place a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and melt the chocolate and coconut oil. Stir to combine and leave to cool for 5 minutes before moving onto the next step.
  • Add the eggs and brown and white sugars to the bowl of an electric stand mixerfitted with a whisk attachment. Whisk until thick, light and creamy, around 5 to 7 minutes. The mixture should form thick creamy ribbons when you lift the whisk, that sit on top of the mixture for a few seconds before settling into the rest of the mixture. If it doesn't do this keep whisking.
  • Add the melted chocolate mixture and sift in the cocoa and baking soda. Fold through the eggs before adding the extra chopped chocolate and orange zest.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto 2 baking sheets lined with baking paper and bake for 8 minutes. Leave on the tray to a 5 minutes to firm up before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
