This brownie cake recipe has never ever failed me. I often add walnuts to the mix too (about 100g) to vary things up a little and sometimes put chunky chocolate bits in too. It's just a stunning recipe that can hold to quite a lot of experimentation.

this is so easy to make, to eat cold as little bites or as a well deserved dessert heated up in the oven with ice-cream 'gorgeous'.

Absolutely delicious, made it last night and there's not a single piece remaining! My boyfriend is not a big chocolate eater and yet even he had seconds! Great, easy recipe. Delicious.

Mmmmmmm, this was lovely!!! Really gooey in the middle (perhaps I should have left it in a few minutes longer- but everyone loved the gooeyness!). Will make this again! I used dark chocolate as I preferr it when cooking with chocolate. I didn't have golden syrup, but I did have maple flavoured syrup- did the trick!
