Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 1/2 cup dark chocolate melts or chips
  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour (plain flour)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 175ÂșC/Gas Mark4.
  • Line a 20x12x5 (cm) baking tin with cooking paper.
  • Chop the butter into small pieces and tip into a glass/metal bowl. (you can use plastic if you are sure it can take heat)
  • Add the chocolate melts to the bowl and place it over a pan of boiling water. Ensure the bowl isn't touching the water and be careful not to get any water into your chocolate mix.
  • Melt the chocolate and butter together, stirring occasionally.
  • You can melt these together in the microwave, but be careful not to burn the chocolate.
  • Measure out the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Stir gently to combine and break up any lumps of cocoa.
  • Once the chocolate has melted add the sugar to the chocolate in two equal(ish) batches. Ensure you stir the chocolate mixture well between the additions.
  • Crack the eggs in one at a time, stirring between each egg until completely smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients and fold together until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared tin and smooth over the top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes. The inside should still be gooey, down try the skewer test, the point of a brownie isn't a clean skewer.
  • Allow to brownie to cool for 30 mins in the pan.
  • Cut into bite sized pieces and sprinkle with icing sugar to serve.
  • Alternatively cut into greedy large pieces ;-)
