The syrup and pecans in this recipe add some lovely extra depth. Make sure to use the best quality chocolate, ideally around 35% cocoa. This recipe makes a very chewy, fudgy brownie. For a more cake-like texture increase the amount of flour.
Choose a chocolate that is high in cocoa solids. The Green and Blacks® brand offer a good selection.
If you do not have the maple syrup, substitute with another 50g caster sugar.
