    Serves: 12 

    • 300g plain dark chocolate
    • 150g unsalted butter
    • 4 medium eggs

    1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a 27x20cm deep baking tray with grease-proof paper.
    2. Place the chocolate and butter into a glass or metal bowl and place over a boiling saucepan of water and let melt. Add the butter and mix till they come to a smooth mixture. Alternatively, place the bowl into a microwave and heat in 30 second intervals ensuring you stir the mixture at every interval. This prevents the chocolate from burning. Continue till the mixture is smooth.
    3. Take the mixture off the heat and leave for 5 minutes to cool down. Now add the eggs and mix well.
    4. Add in sugar, flour, cocoa powder and vanilla extract to the mixture. Mix thoroughly till it is a smooth consistency.
    5. Evenly mixture into the baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes (see tip below).
    6. Once baked, remove from the baking tray and place on a cooling rack. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before lightly dusting with icing sugar. Cut to desired size and enjoy.

    Baking tip

    When baking the brownies, check at 25 minutes. If they look baked then use a knife to make a small incision into the centre. If the knife has raw mixture on it when removed continue to bake for another 10 minutes and check again. If the knife come out without raw mixture on it the brownies are fully baked.
