Inspiration from my travels – Jamaican Chocolate Brownie Cake

Chocolate Brownie Cake – made with Jamaican cocoa!

In my last post, I wrote about Chocolate Tea! I also returned from Jamaica with Jamaican cocoa powder. Here is the recipe for this no-nonsense easy peasy chocolate brownie recipe, bearing the taste of Jamaica!


3/4 cup vegetable oil/margarine

1/2 cup Grace Instant Chocolate (Product of Jamaica)

1 cup caster sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

4 medium eggs (unbeaten)

2 tsp vanilla bean paste

1 cup plain flour (sifted)

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 chopped nuts (mix: peanuts, walnuts & almonds)

Icing sugar (decoration)




– Grease a baking tray and pre-heat your oven to 160 C.

– Add the margarine/oil and cocoa to a large saucepan. Heat over a low heat until melted.

– Remove from the heat.

– Once cooled slightly (but keep stirring) stir in the egg yolks (one at a time).

– After the egg yolks are stirred through, stir in the egg whites.

– Now stir in the flour, sugar, baking powder and nuts.

– Finally, add the vanilla and stir through.

– Pour the cake mix into the baking tray and bake (approx. 50 mins) until firm to touch. Test the moistness of the cake with the aid of a thin knife.

– Once cooked, take out of the oven and leave to cool.

– Once cooled, remove from the baking tray, portion is up and decorate with icing sugar.

– Eat and enjoy!! 🙂IMG_2870 IMG_2873 IMG_2876 IMG_2878 IMG_2884 IMG_2885
