CHOCOLATE BROWNIE

Ingredients

  • 225g butter

  • 450g caster sugar

  • 140g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

  • 5 free-range medium eggs

  • 110g plain flour

  • 55g cocoa powder

Method

  • Heat the oven to 190oC

  • Line a 20x30cm baking tin with baking paper.

  • Gently melt the butter and the sugar together in a large pan. Once melted, take off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until melted.

  • Beat in the eggs, then stir in the flour and the cocoa powder.

  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared tin and bake for 30–35 minutes, or until the top of the brownie is just firm but there is still a gentle wobble in the middle.

  • Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Cut the brownies into 5cm squares when only just warm, or completely cool.
