Made this for work but nearly kept it for home as it was so nice! Easy to make and tastes out of this world. Fantastic warm and out of the oven for a pudding (would be nice with vanilla ice cream) but works equally well once cold. Will be making again (and again...)

Gorgeous!! Easy to make. I added chopped hazelnuts and almonds to the top for extra crunch/texture! Highly recommend. Easy to make with children too (with adult supervision).

Fab! Just the right combination of crispy, chewy and gooey.

Awful! Stuck to the grease proof and really chewy and gooey. Would not recommend.

Made this twice- square and round and the square version was considerably drier as thinner. Really great easy cake to make though and covered the round one with melted milk chocolate and it was the dream cake for a 4 year old!

Great recipe. Took no time at all to make. Made it in a 9x13inch silicon tray and it was perfect. Crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside. Great as a basic recipe. I used plain Chocolate as that was what I had in. It is certainly something you only need a little bit of to satisfy any sugar cravings. Will add and adjust to make different variations in the future and use this as a base recipe. Even my husband loved them and he isn't a big brownie fan. Kids scoffed them like they were going out of style. Lovely heated up with some cornish ice cream on top.
