  • 250 g 60% Lindt chocolate
  • 120 g butter
  • 100 g white sugar
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 3 free-range eggs
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 90 g flour
  • Salt, a pinch
  • 6 Oreo biscuits, lightly crushed
  • 50 g white chocolate shavings
  • For the berry sauce:
  • 200 g mixed frozen berries
  • ½ lemon, zested
  • 60 g caster sugar
  • ¼ cup water

Preheat the oven to 170°C for 30-35 minutes or 180°C for 25-30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and sugar, a little at a time, stirring after each addition. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Mix the flour and salt and gently fold into the chocolate mixture. Pour into a 20 cm baking tray and place in the oven on a rack that’s one lower than the centre. Bake for 30–35 minutes, until the brownie mixture starts pulling away from the pan, or until a skewer comes out with a few crumbs attached to it when inserted.

While the brownies are baking, place all the berry sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently until the berries are soft, crushing them with the back of a fork until smooth. Allow to cool slightly.

Remove the brownies from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Cut into pieces, place on plates. Top with the crushed Oreos and white chocolate shavings and serve with the berry sauce.
