Method

  1. Butter and line a 30cm x 21cm tin. Preheat the oven to fan 160/conventional 180/gas 4. Break up the chocolate with the butter and melt in the microwave on Medium for about 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.

  2. Beat the sugar and eggs in a bowl. Stir in the melted chocolate, add the flour and beat well. Pour into the tin and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top looks papery and feels slightly wobbly. Leave to cool in the tin.

  3. Break up the chocolate with the butter and melt in the microwave on Medium for about 1 minute. Stir until smooth then spread over the cake. Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares.

Recently made these, and they were amazing. I didn't have a tin the size mentioned in the recipe, I split the mixture between two smaller tins and they cooked fine. The tops went paper-like and the centres were soft and gooey - very yummy. Despite the reading the other comments, I did make the topping - it wasn't too much for me! I will be making these again :)

Can I make these in a large size traybake, or won't it work on a bigger scale please?

Made these for a halloween party...great! Added chopped walnuts to topping for extra crunch. Made hem in the top oven of a two-oven Aga and they took the recommended time of 45 mins to cook and were perfect. Very chocolatey...would recommend serving with vanilla or clotted cream ice-cream. Very easy to make!

Yummy! The 1st batch were not that gooey, so I advertised them as "chocolate slice" instead. The next time, I reduced the cooking time and temperature a little and were mush softer in the middle and more brownie-ish!

Ive made these twice now trying to figure out where I went wrong. Both times I ended up with the same thing, what appears to be a massively undercooked cake. The first time I did this it must have spent 2 hours in the oven and still looked like it was half way between cake and cake mix. In the end I cooked it upside down for 15 minutes and it looked better. Once cut it started to ooze chocolaty goodness. In the end it was served hot and oozing in bowls with a couple of scoops of melty vanilla ice cream. It was delicious but a little too rich. It did get me a couple of marriage proposals though! Small slices recommended. The brownies looked more cake like after a few hours in the fridge and could be cut and held in hands without dripping everywhere. They are tasty this way too, but still not what I think of as brownies. They can also be reheated in the oven to ooze again.

Absolute heaven - the most chocolately, gooey brownies I have ever tasted! I left off the topping as it is completely unnecessary and they were polished off in no time!
