16th October 2020

Meet Jamie, a 21-year-old Commis chef at Richmond Painswick. After a year of working as a host, Jamie was successfully appointed as our new trainee. Jamie has been working hard at his in-house training and has accepted the opportunity to undertake an NVQ in food preparation. Today we’re sharing Jamie’s favourite recipe from our Autumn and Winter Menu: a delicious chocolate & peanut butter brownie.


  • 185g butter
  • 185g dark chocolate callets
  • 85g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 50g white chocolate callets
  • 50g peanut butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 275g caster sugar



  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pre-heat your oven to 180°C
  • Place a pan of water on the stove and bring to the boil. Ensure the pan is large enough to hold a metal bowl on the top. Place the dark chocolate & butter in the bowl and melt over the water
  • While the chocolate and butter are melting, beat the eggs and sugar with a balloon whisk
  • Allow the chocolate and butter mix to cool slightly
  • Once the sugar and eggs are white and fluffy, add the melted chocolate mix
  • Then add the flour and cocoa
  • Once all the mixture is combined carefully pour into the baking tray
  • Now melt the peanut butter in a pan and scatter the white chocolate over the brownie mixture
  • When the peanut butter is runny, drizzle this over the top of the brownie
  • Bake for 25 mins on 180°C
