    About this recipe: These chocolate brownies are completely different than the average brownie. They have a moist cake-like texture, with chocolate chips and rum-soaked raisins dotted throughout. Enjoy with a big scoop of ice cream for dessert.

    • 3 tablespoons rum
    • 150ml whipping cream
    • 170g dark chocolate chips
    • 85g plain flour
    • 75g light brown soft sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 eggs
    • 80g chopped toasted pecans

    1. Preheat an oven to 170 C / Gas 3. Line an 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment.
    2. Combine the raisins and rum in a small bowl; set aside to soak.
    3. Heat the whipping cream in a small pot over medium-low heat until hot, but do not allow to boil. Remove from heat and stir the chocolate chips into the hot cream until completely melted. Set aside to cool.

    5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the tin, about 30 minutes.
