Ingredients

    125g/4 oz/1 stick plus 1 tbps butter
    175g/6 oz/7 squares dark/bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped or broken
    225g/8oz/1 heaping cup caster/superfine sugar
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 eggs, lighly beaten
    150g/5 oz/1 heaping cup plain/all purpose flour
    175g/6 oz/1 1/2 cups icing/confectioners sugar
    2 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
    1 tbps butter

Tips

Make sure you don't overcook the brownies so they turn out nice and gooey in the middle and crunchy on the outside. Brownies can be stored for a few days in an airtight container.


Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4, 10 mins before baking. Lightly oil and line a 20.5 cm/8 inch square cake tin/pan with greaseproof/waxed paper or baking parchment.

2. Slowly melt the butter and chocolate together in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. Transfer mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and vanilla extract, then stir in the eggs. Sift over the flour and then fold together well with a metal spoon or rubber spatula. Pour into the prepared tin.

3. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 30 mins until just set. Remove the cooked mixture from the oven. Leave to cool in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack.

4. Sift the icing/confectioners sugar and cocoa into a small bowl and make a well in the centre. Place the butter in the well, then gradually add about 2 tablespoons of hot water. Mix to form a smooth spreadable icing.

5. Pour the icing over the cooked mixture. Allow the icing to set before cutting into squares.
