Throwback Thursday – How to make the school dinner favourite Chocolate Concrete.

The first thing you did when you walked into the school dining hall was look to see if this was on the menu.

And here’s the exact recipe:

Ingredients

  • 200g plain flour
    200g granulated sugar
    100g butter
    50g cocoa powder

Method

  • Prep:10min › Cook:20min › Ready in:30min
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar and cocoa (do not use hot chocolate, you can taste the difference).
    Melt the butter (I pop it into the microwave), then add it to the mixing bowl.
    Using your fingers, mix it all together until it has a crumble consistency.
    Grease your tin and pour the mixture into it. Pat the mixture down so it compacts. Place in the oven for 20 minutes.
    When it comes out, sprinkle with a little sugar. Serve on its own (hot or cold) or with custard.

Tip

  • Only leave it to ‘rest’ if you want it hard. Some people like it still soft. It depends on your own taste.
