Story of the recipe or story of the chef:

The story behind how I came to have this recipe begins in January 2003, when , dining in a trendy restaurant in Brussels, I tasted a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delicious!

I sneaked into the kitchen to ask the chef for his recipe… Two smiles and a few thank yous later, I had it, on the condition that I wouldn’t spread it around much… in Brussels at least!

Here it is just for you.



List of ingredients:

  • 500g dark chocolate
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 300g butter
  • 2 packets of vanilla sugar
  • 120g flour, sifted
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 pinches of salt


Preparation Mode:

1.  In a small saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat and break the chocolate into a bowl. Melt the chocolate slowly over a water bath.

2.  With a brush, butter the brownie mold. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4.

3.  Mix the melted chocolate with the butter. Off the heat, add the caster sugar, vanilla sugar, stirred eggs and 2 pinches of salt. Add the flour at the end.

4.  Pour into the mold and bake for 15 minutes. Leave to rest for 5 minutes in the oven after turning it off.

5.  Leave to cool before placing in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Remove from the mold and slice into individual servings.


My top tip:

Serve with a scoop of ice cream, just like at the restaurant.
