Could this be made in advance (say a day) then reheated? I fancy doing it as an alternative Christmas pudding for the kids but don't fancy making it on the big day!

I have just made this. I checked it after 30 minutes and it was still very runny in the middle so I put it on for an extra 15 minutes. Looks and smells delicious though :p

I made this today... I doubled the quantity because it was for dessert for a few people. It is amazing!! The previous reviews are 100% right! I also added pecan nuts and white chocolate chunks and it was divine. The only thing I will change next time is probably put a bit more cocoa in to make it more dark chocolatey but it was delicious either way. A few people said it's the best brownie they've ever had! Pleased I've finally found the perfect brownie recipe as they always seem to come out too wet or too cakey but these are perfect :)

I have taken this cake to work, the kids have taken it to school and university, I have done it for family, friends and strangers and, without exception, each time someone has asked for the recipe (just sent the link to one of my son's American flatmates at Uni). It is the most popular quick bake I do. One thing I would say is to be patient when melting the chocolate et al at the start - very low heat and leave it be.

Yummy! Made this for my husband's birthday and there wasn't a crumb left. Will make again for sure! Sifted icing sugar on top and served with ice cream.

I chose this cake to make a as a last-minute birthday cake for my boyfriend because it looked so easy and didn't need any filling or icing. It was AMAZING. Everyone who had a slice loved it and I was even accused of having bought it! I added some chopped pecans and some chocolate chips and let it bake for 30 minutes as I was a bit worried about under cooking it, but in hindsight, I could have just done it for 25 minutes and it would have been a bit more gooey. Be warned though that you will not be able to stop at one slice if you are a chocolate lover....
