Nadiya Hussain’s best chocolate recipes

by Jessica Lockyer-Palmer

published on 30 September 2020

If you cast your mind back to the simpler times of Bake Off series six, you may well recall that Nadiya Hussain was not only crowned the overall winner of the series, but star baker of the show’s notoriously challenging Chocolate Week. It’s no surprise then that Nadiya’s chocolate-based recipes stand out as some of the most popular from across the cookbooks she has gone on to publish since, from the hot cookie dough dessert from her first cookbook, Nadiya’s Kitchen to the triple chocolate brownies from her latest release, Nadiya Bakes. Here we have rounded up eight of our favourite recipes that combine two of the greatest gifts to the world of baking: chocolate and Nadiya Hussain.

Nadiya Hussain’s Chocolate Caramel Flan

Nadiya Hussain’s Money Can’t Buy You Happiness Brownies

If there’s a single phrase guaranteed to inspire sheer elation in any chocolate lover it’s “triple layer chocolate brownie”. Well, chocolate fiends, here Nadiya presents to you her best-ever brownies, consisting of a chocolate chip brownie base, dulce de leche nut middle and and zesty cheesecake topping.

Nadiya Hussain’s Roasted Fruit Cobbler

Because why have a plain cobbler when you could have a chocolate one?

Rocky Road Cake

Nadiya’s chocolate rocky road might just be the greatest cake and bar collab of all time. Think moist fudgey chocolate base meets crunchy, nutty and chewy topping.

Crispy Chocolate and Salted Peanut Tart

Nadiya Hussain’s Crispy Chocolate and Salted Peanut Tart

Nadiya’s chocolate and peanut tart is baked with a thick-cut salted crisp base. Yes, you read that right. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it people, especially if it’s an innovation emerging from Nadiya’s kitchen.

Nadiya Hussain’s Hot Cookie Dough and Ice Cream

Nadiya Hussain’s Hot Cookie Dough and Ice Cream

Just in case the words ‘hot cookie dough and ice cream’ haven’t yet convinced you, we advise taking a good long look at the oozing, gooey chocolate centre of this one-pan wonder.

Nadiya Hussain’s Éclair Roll

Nadiya Hussain’s Éclair Roll

Nadiya dedicates this fuss-free and time-saving cross between a swiss roll and an éclair to anyone who loves French choux pastry but wishes it took less time to make.

Nadiya Hussain’s Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse

This chocolate mousse is made even more indulgent by the addition of chocolate hazelnut spread and a sprinkling of roasted hazelnuts.
