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.
