November 3, 2014
No matter how you slice it, brownies done on the barbie are delicious and easy to do. Once you've done cooking your meal, set the correct burner to medium high for indirect cooking, bring the temperature inside the grill to the required temperature for what you're going to bake (170C in this case), Slide what you're baking onto the grill, close the lid and set the timer! Dessert is served!

250g Roughly chopped unsalted butter
250g Roughly chopped dark chocolate for baking
5 Lightly beaten eggs
2 cups Brown/raw or demerara sugar
1 cup Desiccated coconut
1 cup Slivered almonds
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
1 1/2 cup White flour, sifted
1/2 cup Pure cocoa, sifted
Icing sugar, cocoa, coconut slivers, shaved chocolate, ice-cream or whipped cream, to serve

BBQXL Baking Dish 45 cm X 29 cm


  • Preheat your barbie to 170C. Line a 45 x 29cm baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in double boiler (ensure that the top pot of the double boiler does not touch the water in the lower section).
  • Stir occasionally until the chocolate and butter have combined into a smooth blend.
  • Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat lightly. 
  • Add in the sugar, coconut, almonds and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Blend the flour and cocoa in a separate bowl.
  • Fold the melted chocolate/butter into the egg mixture until combined and then fold through the flour/cocoa mixture. Don’t over-mix! Stop when the mixture looks homogenous and there are no pockets/bubbles of the flour and cocoa mix.
  • Pour everything into the baking pan that was previously lined with parchment.
  • Bake on the grill using indirect heat for 30-35 minutes or until just firm. Do not open the hood of the barbecue until the first 30 minutes have elapsed.
  • Test doneness by inserting a toothpick into the brownie. If it comes out clean, it’s done.
  • Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
