Food: The best chocolate chip cookie recipe!

I have really gotten into baking recently - I don't know if it's the pregnancy or just having lots of free time at the weekend. These cookies were inspired by Danni's Instagram story as she had made them and was raving about how delicious they were. 

The recipe can be found on the BBC Good Food website here but I've also included it below with my comments. They are based on Millie's Cookies (which is when I knew I had to make them!) and they are crispy on the outside and really gooey on the inside- the perfect cookie! 

The recipe makes 12-14 large cookies, but you could make them smaller and probably get 20 out of the mix. They are SO GOOD warm, so if I made them again I would probably cover and put half of the mixture in the fridge and then bake them when I wanted a new batch of warm ones. 


  • 125g softened butter
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (I forgot to beat it but don't think it made any difference)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g self raising flour
  • Half tsp of salt
  • 200g chocolate chips (I used a big bar of Dairy Milk and roughly chopped it, but kept 12 chunks aside for the middle of the cookie)

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees

2. Cream the butter and sugar, and then combine in the egg and vanilla extract

3. Sift in the flour and salt, and then stir in the chocolate chunks

4. Roll into walnut size balls - I actually used an ice cream scoop to measure out the cookies

5. Place on ungreased baking paper. I didn't have any greaseproof paper, so used foil instead and just lined it with a little bit of butter - they didn't stick at all which was good. The recipe then says to bake for 7 minutes but I found that 10 minutes was the best time (at 7 minutes they just seemed not baked!) and they were still gooey and gorgeous

6. Take out of the oven and leave for a minute to harden, before transferring to a wire rack
