I loved this! However my boyfriend didn't like it as he thought it was undercooked and too soft in the middle (it was VERY gooey in the middle). Obviously a matter of taste but I ate most of it!

I don't normally like brownies, but this was wonderful. I substituted tblsp honey for golden syrup, because I think golden syrup is ridiculous, and it turned out absolutely beautifully. I let it cool for only 5 or so minutes and served it hot with a homemade strawberry sauce (1 pt fresh strawberries + 80g caster sugar + 1 tblsp good quality vanilla + drop of lemon juice, heat, let thicken, then puree) on top and it was amazing. Rave reviews from all! Will def make again.

let it be known that i don't like chocolate cake ! this on the other hand is something truly exceptional. So easy to make (hence why it is in my oven again for the second time this weekend). I use a 100% chocolate so use slightly less than stated in the recipe and I don't bother with the cocoa powder. MAKE THIS TODAY YOU WONT REGRET IT

Just taken it out of the oven and 30 minutes appears to be just right. I waited until it started to 'wrinkle' on the top and figured it had cooked through. Will probably eat with vanilla ice cream!
