Have made this twice over the long weekend as it's been such a hit!! I took the tips of other reviewers and cut way back on both caster and brown sugar, I never measure stuff but aimed for about two thirds of the quantities the recipe suggests and it's plenty sweet enough. I also accidentally used maple syrup instead of golden one time but it still tasted fab. Try to eat this asap once cooked as it loses its gooey middle fairly quickly - this doesn't affect the taste but I personally like a squidgy middle and prefer it warm. I served with some good quality vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries and it looked and tasted great! The second time I topped it with decorative chocolate balls which made the top lovely and crunchy for another texture and also looked pretty. A super quick and easy recipe which is easy to tweak and personalise with a bit of practice - saved to my favourites!!

Amazing, use this for brownies as well- whole family loved them and this is the 3rd time i have made it. I only use 100g caster sugar and 75g light brown sugar otherwise it is wayyyyyy too sweet for my liking- served with raspberries, double cream and icing sugar. recommend it for entertaining. also its great when gooey in the middle ....mmmm

Lovely gooey delicious recipe. I reduced the sugars too - 145g castor and 50g brown. I also scattered a few juicy dried cherries into the mixture before pouring into the tin.

Really delicious, I've made this several times as a brownie rather than cake and get lots of compliments. I recently made a low gluten version - Use 100g almond flour, 2 tbsp regular flour and don't bother adding any sugar (just tbsp syrup and milk chocolate). Only 15 mins to cook. Delicious. x

i'm quite inexperienced and this was my first time making brownies, i was a bit worried as the butter in the first stage all came to the top of the pan and made the mixture quite watery, however i carried on and hoped for the best. the brownie cake was amazing! will make again and probably one of the better brownies i have ever had, chewy in the centre too!! delicious

125g caster sugar and 50g brown sugar doesn't affect the bake and avoids the cloyingly sweet taste.

Easy to make but way too sweet, even though I didn't use syrup and chose dark chocolate. Definitely use less sugar than indicated.

So easy to make. First time it came out a bit hard. Next time I used 70% dark chocolate and it was much nicer. I always microwave the leftovers to make it goey again.

More like a traditional brownie than a cake but enjoyed it just the same especially as a part of a sundae. Will be making this again.

Fast and delicious! I've reduced sugar (and did not regret it) and didn't have golden syrup. Served with vanilla icecream and raspberries. My guests loved it!

Wonderful recipe! Fast and tasty. I also reduced the amount of sugar and didn't have golden syrop but even then it was delicious. Served with vanilla icecream and raspberries, my guests loved it! Five stars.

Going from the other comments posted that the cake is very sweet, I reduced both sugars by a third and it was absolutely delicious - crunchy on the top, but lovely and chewy in the middle and very chocolatey. When melting the butter and chocolate I pretty much left the mixture alone and just gave it a stir towards the end. This is a really simple recipe which produces great results.

Just made this cake with my daughter and it turned out really well. Great to make with kids. I used a bit less castor sugar (150g) and next time will use less again as I don't think you need quite as much as the recipe calls for. I cooked it for about 40mins and it turned out perfectly sticky in the middle. Also forgot to add the vanilla but didn't matter at all.
