I have made this twice. The second time I knocked the air bubbles out on the counter (tap firmly) then let it sit so the fat glossed over the surface to minimize the cracking. Then I reduced the oven heat to 170 degrees C for the full 35 mins- absolutely gorgeous!

Excellent, simple and very tasty brownie-cake. It is exactly what it says. I actually made this twice because the first one fell a bit flat and also got completely stuck to the tin - when it says 'grease and line', I literally did that - greased the tin and then laid in the paper, but I should have known better - you need to grease the tin AND grease the paper before the mixture goes in too. So, the first batch went wrong (although it was still eaten by my partner's colleagues, minus a tooth or two), but the second batch was absolutely perfect. I used a little bit more baking powder in the second batch too as the first hadn't risen properly - about 3/4 tsp. Gooey, cakey, loveliness.

I added 100g glace cherries and raisins, used a square tin and then cut the brownies into squares. They did take 20 mins longer in the oven (fan oven @ 160C) and I was worried that they would be too gooey but they were perfect the next day served with fresh raspberries.

Really rich and little crisp on the outside, just how I like them.

Did not rise as well as I expected though.

Well worth a go.

This is a fantastic cake to make anytime and for any occasion - you can make it different each time with the fresh fruit you serve with it or by adding a caramel or chocolate sauce. I have made this so may times now and it is regularly requested by family and friends.

This was DIVINE. My mum made this as a dessert for a family glamping holiday and it truly made the holiday. Please try this and love it and pass it on to all your friends like I fully intend to.
