Fancy treating yourself to something a little special this bank holiday weekend? Well we have a super tasty BOSH! menu lined up for you, perfect for enjoying al fresco (if the sunshine turns up!) or treating your family at home… Time to tuck in to a delicious dessert of Gooey PBJ Brownies!


300g plain flour

460g light muscovado sugar

160g cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

120g smooth peanut butter (thinner is better for this)

220ml water

220ml vegetable oil

2½ tbsp vanilla extract

50g dark chocolate

120g raspberry jam

80g raspberries

2 tbsp broken peanuts

Line the cake tin with the parchment paper, making sure there’s a good overhang (this excess will act as handles to remove the brownie from the tin when it comes out of the oven)

Add the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt to the food processor and whizz to combine • Add 30g of the peanut butter, the water, oil and vanilla • Blend until everything is well mixed (or put everything in a large mixing bowl and use an electric beater) • Break the dark chocolate into squares and add it to the mixture • Blend for another few seconds to mix in the chocolate

Use a spatula or metal spoon to empty the brownie mix into the cake tin and smooth it out so it goes all the way to the edges of the tin • Use a spoon to pour and drag swirls of the remaining peanut butter and the jam randomly over the top of the brownie, decorating the whole top with long swirls of jam • Push the raspberries and peanuts randomly into the mix

Put the tin in the hot oven and bake for 45 minutes, until cooked but still squidgy in the middle (try to avoid the outsides drying out and getting too brown, you want to take it out sooner than you think – the middle will still be soft and maybe even wobbly, but it will cool down to a gooey perfection)

Take the tin out of the oven and let it cool down almost to room temperature • Use the parchment paper to lift the brownie out of the tin and put it on a chopping board (you may need a friend to help with this to ensure it doesn’t break in the middle) • Cut into brownie portions and serve
