Hot cross brownie anyone?

What's better than a brownie with your pizza?

If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ll know we’re not just about Pizza!

While chef Sam makes all our excellent dough, Izzie is the queen of the brownie (which you can add on to any Little Pizza Box order or purchase on their own!).

So with Easter around the corner, we thought we would try our hands at adding some traditional flavours to our gooey brownies and share the recipe with you to try for yourself!

Pile of brownies

This recipe was found via



  • 175g salted butter

  • 80g golden syrup

  • 280g golden caster sugar

  • 1tbsp ground cinnamon

  • 1tbsp fresh nutmeg

  • 320g dark chocolate

  • 4 medium free-range eggs

  • 70g plain flour



Step 1

Melt the butter and syrup in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the sugar and spices, then simmer for 3-4 minutes until dissolved. Take off the heat, add the chocolate and mix with a wooden

Step 2

Line a 20cm square tin with baking paper. Tear the toasted hot cross buns into rough 2cm square pieces and scatter them into the tin.

Step 3

Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Spoon the brownie mix into the tin and allow to stand for 15 minutes so the mix settles over and into the buns.

Step 4

Bake for 35-40 minutes until gently set and wobbly in the middle. Don’t be tempted to leave the brownies in the oven longer than the cooking time as they’ll become dry.

Step 5

Allow to cool, then chill overnight. The next day, turn out, remove the baking paper and trim the edges (for nibbling!). Turn the right way up and cut into squares to serve. A knife dipped in hot water will make this much easier.
