Total time: 
Serves: 16
  • 170g unsalted butter
  • 280g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp white miso paste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 200g plain white flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 180g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 75g walnuts, lightly toasted & chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/160 C fan. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan until it begins to foam. Continue cooking, stirring regularly, until golden brown and starting to smell nutty - this is the milk solids toasting. Set aside to cool.
  3. Once cool, whisk in the sugar, miso, eggs and vanilla.
  4. Whisk together the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl, then fold into the wet batter, followed by your chopped chocolate and walnuts.
  5. Transfer to the baking tin and bake for 30 - 35 minutes until the top is crisp and golden and just beginning to crack. Allow to cool completely then slice into squares.
  6. Will keep in an airtight container for 3 - 4 days.
