This weekend is the Platinum Jubilee which I of course I couldn’t not get baking for!
For those of you who don’t know, the Platinum Jubilee is a huge celebration in England held to mark the 70th anniversary of the queens rain here on the throne. It’s celebrated around the country with street parties which of course have to have the yummiest of food.
So, that’s where todays blogpost comes into play! I couldn’t not make something delicious for the queens anniversary now, could I?
Bronuts have become a HUGE hit here in the baking world. I hadn’t heard of them until I started seeing them take over my Instagram feed and I instantly felt inspired to make them myself.
Bronuts are a brownie in a doughnut shape – I know, genius right? Seriously, who could turn one of these down (I bet even queen elizabeth herself couldn’t *wink wink*). These are just the perfect sweet treat to make for the Jubilee celebrations this weekend!
This is such a easy recipe to follow and the decorating is even easier. These may be simple to make but they are effective and they scream jubilee, right?
So if you’d like to make these Bronuts yourself in celebration of the queen, then the recipe is down below…

- 50g Of White Chocolate
How To Make Bronuts:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, grease a doughnut tin with butter and preheat the oven to 190C / 170C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Secondly, in a medium sized microwaveable bowl, place the 200g of dark chocolate and 200g of butter. Place the bowl into the microwave and in 20 second blasts, blast until melted and smooth.
- Once melted, set aside for 10 minutes to cool.
- Next, in a large bowl, using an electric whisk, whisk together the 4 medium eggs with the 275g of light brown sugar until it has doubled in volume, is light in colour and has the texture of a mousse.
- When chocolate and butter mixture has cooled, pour the mixture into the whisked eggs and using a spatula, carefully fold in the chocolate.
- Now, add 100g of plain flour and 50g of the cocoa powder and still using the spatula, fold into the mixture.
- Then, fold in your 200g of milk chocolate chips.
- Place the bronut mixture into a piping bag, snip off the end of the bag and pipe the bronut mixture into the prepared doughnut tin.
- Once piped into the doughnut tin, place the bronuts into the oven and cook for around 18-20 minutes, until the tops have cracked and a skewer placed into the centre of the bronut comes out clean.
- When the bronuts are cooked, take out the oven and allow to cool in the tin for around 10 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to cool down completely.
How To Decorate Bronuts:
- Once the bronut has cooled right down, it’s time to decorate!
- Place 50g of blue chocolate, 50g of red chocolate and 50g of white chocolate into three microwaveable bowls.
- Next, place the bowls into the microwave and in 20 second blasts, blast the chocolate until completely melted.
- Now, place the chocolates into 3 separate piping bags.
- Snip off the end of the piping bag (making sure it’s a small snip so the drizzle is thin) with blue in and drizzle that over one half of the bronut.
- Finally, repeat the step above with the red and white chocolate also so the bronuts have the colour of the Union Jack on them.
That’s your Chocolate Bronuts prepared, baked, cooled, decorated and ready for you to enjoy!
