Aspiring Bakers #36: Choc-a-Cookie (Nigella's Totally Chocolate)

Another bake for Aspiring Bakers #36.

Wanted to make something chocolatey for my colleagues, so i searched around for my notes and decided to bake this.
Coincidentally, my friend shared the youtube link in FB too.

So here we go:

  •     125g dark chocolate
  •     150g plain flour
  •     30g cocoa powder
  •     1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  •     ½ tsp salt
  •     125g soft butter
  •     75g soft light brown sugar
  •     50g white sugar
  •     1 tsp vanilla extract
  •     1 large egg (cold from the fridge)
  •     350 grams dark chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Melt the 125g dark chocolate either in the microwave or in a heatproof dish over a pan of simmering water.
  2. Put the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
  3. Cream the butter and sugars in another bowl. Add the melted chocolate and mix together.
  4. Beat in the vanilla extract and cold egg, and then mix in the dry ingredients. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop out and place on a lined baking sheet about few cm apart. Do not flatten them.
  6. Bake for 18 minutes, testing with a cake tester to make sure it comes out semi-clean and not wet with cake batter.
  7. Leave to cool slightly on the baking sheet for 4-5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to harden as they cool.
