Alia Faisal quit her office job to set up her own cake business, Hundreds and Thousands Cupcakes in October 2011. She’s a self-taught baker and lives in Bristol.

These chocolate digestive brownies are a perfect combo of my all time favourites. I call them brownies with a twist. The twist comes from adding crushed digestive biscuits right at the end. Follow this simple recipe and bite into perfect brownies with a mellow crunch.


1. Preheat the oven to 150°c/gas 2 and prepare a standard 23×33 cm brownie tray.


2. In a heat proof bowl, melt the butter and chocolate over a pan of simmering water making sure that the base of the bowl is not touching the water.

3. Once the chocolate and butter have completely melted and slightly cool add the flour and sugar and mix well. Now add the eggs and beat till it forms a smooth mixture.


4. Add crushed digestive biscuits and give it a quick mix by hand before pouring it into the baking tray. Bake for 35 minutes for the perfect brownie that has a nice crust but squidgy and moist from the inside.

Enjoy and happy baking!
