Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

This has to be the best simple double choc chip coookie I have ever made.  Seriously easy and seriously good. These are from Bill Granger’s book: “Simply Bill”

And since today is both raining AND the end of the world, I  figured it was a good way to spend it.

If you make these, I’d love to know what you think. We use this as our standby never fail recipe, and they are high and thick and rich and chewy and yooooooooooooooooooooooooooomy.

250 g. (9 oz.) unsalted butter, softened
350g soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
310g (2½) cups plain flour
60g (½) cup cocoa powder* I use Dutch drinking chocolate powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
a pinch of salt
350g dark chocolate, chopped

Preheat the oven to 180 C .
Place the butter and sugar in a bowl, and beat until light and creamy.
Add the vanilla and eggs and stir together well.
Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and mix until just combined
Fold in the chocolate.
Place large spoonfuls of cookie mixture on a greased and lined baking tray, allowing room for spreading.
Cook in batches for 15-20 minutes, until the bases are cooked.
Allow to cool on the tray.
Makes about 30.

  1. Looks yummy Rhu- there is nothing like a chocolate chip cookie- except maybe two chocolate chip cookies and a cup of tea or milk. Thanks for the recipe-
    Have a great day- Regards,Anna

    1. These really are yummy, second only to the ‘Nigella’ recipe I posted a long time ago. But the Nigella recipe is so rich, it’s more a special occasion cookie, where as this one is a great staple. It is truly the best CCC recipe ever. You can also add coconut or chopped nuts, Maraschino cherries (yum) – it’s quite forgiving. x

  2. I’m not a big fan of chocolate baked anything… But I know three other people in this house who would definitely go for these!
