9 - 12 pieces

Easy 30 Minutes



For the recipe  Garden Traybake

For the Brownie Base:

150 g Unsalted butter
150 g Dr. Oetker Dark Chocolate
100 g Light Brown Sugar
2 Medium Eggs
1 tsp Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
50 g Plain Flour
50 g Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder
2.5 g Dr. Oetker Baking Powder Sachets
100 g Dr. Oetker Milk Chocolate Chunks

To Decorate:

250 g Dr. Oetker Chocolate Buttercream Style Icing
100 g Chocolate Biscuit
Dr. Oetker Mini Wafer Flowers
Dr. Oetker Wafer Daisies
90 g Chocolate Mini Eggs




Preheat the oven to 170°C/150°C/Gas Mark 3. Grease and line a rectangular baking tray roughly 25x18cm.


Break the Chocolate into squares and place in a microwavable bowl, add the butter and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and place back in the microwave heating in 10 second bursts, stirring between each burst until the butter and chocolate has melted. 


Stir the sugar into the melted mixture and leave to cool for 10 minutes. 


Once cooled add the beaten eggs and Vanilla extract, mix in to create a smooth, glossy mixture. 


Sieve the flour, Baking Powder and Cocoa Powder on top and gently fold into the mixture. Finally add the Chocolate Chunks and stir through.


Place the mixture into the prepared baking tray and smooth to evenly cover the tin. Place in the oven and bake 25 minutes until the centre of the brownie no longer wobbles and the edges of the brownies are firm to touch. Leave to cool in the tin, this allows the brownie to firm up. 


Once cooled spoon the Chocolate Buttercream on top of the brownie and spread to cover the top of the brownie. 


Sprinkle the crushed biscuits over the top of the buttercream and place your chosen treats on top of the crushed biscuits. Your Garden Traybake is now ready to enjoy! 

Bake the brownie the day before decorating. Once the brownie has cooled wrap in clingfilm and leave overnight. This allows the flavours to develop overnight.
