We’re back with another delicious quail egg celebrity recipe. We warn you! It’s not diet-friendly! This time, we wanted to bake something. An indulgent sweet that no one can screw up: Gordon Ramsay’s brownie recipe! This week’s celebrity favorite has the signature of none other than the world-famous chef Gordon Ramsay. Before we begin with our delicious cake, let’s learn a little more about this week’s famous coof.
Gordon James Ramsay was born on 8 November 1966, according to his Wikipedia page. He is a British chef, restaurateur, writer, and television personality. Gordon was born in Johnstone, Scotland, but was raised in Stratford-upon-Avon in England. He is the second of four children. His early life consisted of moving constantly due to the aspirations of his father. However, during his childhood, Ramsay was also subject to abuse and neglect from his father, who was sometimes a violent alcoholic. Eventually, the Ramsays settled in Stratford-upon-Avon, and when Gordon turned 16, he moved out of his family home.
His restaurants have been awarded an impressive 16 Michelin stars! His signature restaurant is Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea, London. What really makes Gordon James Ramsay stand out as a chef is not exactly his popularity. Instead, it’s the OBE distinction. OBE stands for the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. This is an award rewarding contribution to the arts and sciences. If you’re ever in London, make sure to drop by and eat something!
Of course, the world doesn’t know all these things about him. He became world-famous as a reality television personality. He rose to fame on the British TV show Boiling Point in 1998. Then, he quickly became one of the most popular and easily-recognized chefs in the UK.
What really makes Gordon Ramsay stand out as a television personality is his bluntness and fiery temper. He has a strict demeanor and doesn’t shy away from using plenty of expletives. During his career as a television personality, he combined activities in the film, hospitality, and food industry. He also promotes chefs who apprentice under his wing.
However, Ramsay rose to prominence not only due to his gastronomic talents but also due to presenting TV shows about competitive cookery and food, such as the British series Hell’s Kitchen, The F Word, and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. These shows are what really made everyone know Gordon Ramsay. In other words, after 2004 his fame grew worldwide.
As with all of our celebrity recipes, we like to keep them short and interesting. It’s also great if they’re easy to make. This particular one seems to tick all the boxes! Nevertheless, just because it’s simple and easy-to-follow doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to screw it up! While the ingredients list is short and the instructions simple, the flavor and texture is something that not everyone can nail.
Another relevant aspect to note is our use of quail eggs instead of chicken eggs. It’s an ingredient replacement that even Chef Ramsay would approve of, we think. After all, he is all for making recipes healthier and better-tasting! Let’s check out Gordon Ramsay’s brownie recipe ingredient list!

Recipe Yield: 10-12 brownies
Calories: Approx. 460 kcal/100 g
Preparation Time: 0H15M
Cooking Time: 0H45M
Total Time: 1H
- 20 quail eggs
- 115 g butter, plus extra for greasing
- 300 g caster sugar
- 225 g dark chocolate
- 75 g plain flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 75 g cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
- 250 g dried sour cherries
- 2 tbsp milk, if needed
Step 1: Start by bringing all the ingredients to room temperature. To ensure this, leave them on the kitchen counter for half an hour. Next, grab a large enough bowl and start beating the sugar and butter together. Beat until you get a fluffy consistency. While you are doing this, melt the chocolate. Melt it using a technique called a bain-marie. Otherwise, you risk burning the chocolate.
Step 2: In order to melt the chocolate properly, you need to put a saucepan on to the hob and add some water. Make sure it comes up to 5 cm to the side of the pan. Then, bring it to a boil, then lower the heat until the water simmers. Put a heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan and add the chocolate. It will melt gradually. But make sure you stir from time to time.
Step 3: Next, add the melted chocolate over the sugared butter. Add this along with flour, salt, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and quail eggs. While you're at it, fold in a ton of dried cherries. If the mixture feels too stiff, add a couple of tablespoons of milk. If not, don't add anything more.
Step 4: Next, pour the mixture into a lined tin and pop it in the oven. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the brownies are coming away from the side.
Step 5: Cool and then cut the brownies. Sprinkle with more dark chocolate or whatever you want and you're done. It's time to enjoy Gordon Ramsay's brownie recipe!
