The Beer Boutique

This recipe is modified from Jamie Oliver.


  • 5 tablespoons sunflower oil , plus extra for greasing
  • 200 g dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 170 g self-raising flour
  • 3 heaped teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 180 g golden caster sugar
  • sea salt
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 230 ml Weird Beard Out of Office IPA
  • 200 g brazil nuts
  • 1 mashed Banana

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Grease a square baking tin (roughly 20cm) with a little oil, then line with greaseproof paper. 

    Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base doesn’t touch the water. Break 150g of chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt, then set aside to cool slightly.

    Meanwhile, sieve the flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl, then stir in the sugar and a pinch of salt. Halve the vanilla pod lengthways, scrape out the seeds, then add them to the bowl. Stir in the oil, beer and melted chocolate until combined.

    Roughly chop and stir in the remaining chocolate, the banana, and most of the brazil nuts reserving a few for the top. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle over the remaining brazil nuts, then place into the hot oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked on the outside, but still gooey in the middle.
