Perfect this recipe for Easter – or scoff it now.

“All the ingredients except the fresh orange zest are from the store cupboard,” says Phil Vickery. “Just remember to allow the brownie to cool a little after taking out of the oven – or, better yet, chill in the fridge – or it will be too soft to cut.”

  • 20 centimetre square baking tray
  • Pan
  • Heatproof bowl


  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 110 g salted butter softened
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 150 g bitter chocolate
  • 75 g plain flour sifted
  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 large orange zest finely grated
  • 4 creme eggs halved
  • vanilla ice cream to serve (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a 20 centimetre square baking tray with greaseproof paper, or oil well.
  • Melt the golden syrup, butter, sugar and chocolate together in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water.
  • Remove the bowl from the pan, then stir in the flour, eggs and orange zest. Mix well but do not overmix, or the finished brownie will be chewy.
  • Pour into the prepared tray, then carefully place the eight Creme Egg halves into the top of the mix, pressing down slightly.
  • Pop into the oven and cook for 35–40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool, then chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before cutting. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if you like.
