  1. Preheat the oven to 180 celsius/ fan 160 celsius/ Gas 4. Grease the cake tin and cut a piece of non stick greaseproof and baking paper to the base of the tin
  2. Break the chocolate bar into chunks and put into a small saucepan with the butter and melt over a gentle heat, stirring every now and then.
  3. Take off the heat and leave to cool slightly
  4. Put the flour, cocoa and sugar into a bowl, add the eggs, cooled chocolate and vanilla extract and beat together
  5. Spoon into the tin and bake for 15-17 minutes( the top should be crisp and cooked but the inside should be still be gooey- don't be tempted to overcook them)

You can put some orange and chilli in it but you have to use dark chocolate or else it doesn't taste nice
