  • 100g self-raising flour

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line the base of a 21cm square tin with baking parchment. Put the cocoa, butter and sugar in your largest saucepan and gently melt, stirring so the mixture doesn’t catch. When the cocoa mixture is melted and combined, cool slightly, then stir in the eggs, little by little, followed by the flour and coconut.

  2. Tip into the tin and bake for 45 mins on a middle shelf – check after 30 mins and cover with another piece of baking parchment if the crust is browning too much. Cool in the tin, then carefully lift out and cut into squares.

Excellent brownie, probably the best recipe that I have ever made.

These took a lot longer to cook than stated - the middle wouldn't cook. I also found them way too sweet. I'll try them again with less sugar.

This was easy to make but but apart from that I'm not that impressed and I won't make it again. Even with my sweet tooth I found it too sweet and too rich. I cut it into 25 squares instead of 16 and still found even one piece too sickly. I found it needed 5 mins more than the recipe suggested and it was still really gooey in the centre.

My grand children are brownie freaks. They loved these.

made these for work and they went down really well. A colleague commented that they were the best brownies she'd ever had!

Delicious! Really easy to make. I did half the quantity as I was having a baking trial day and didn't want to turn the whole family into fatties, but it still filled the stated size tin nicely and may have been shallower than intended but still a good depth. I found it difficult to tell when it was cooked but went by smell and left it the exact time stated and hoped. It turned out perfectly-cooked but squidgy :-)

Didn't change a thing and yum, they went down a storm.

Best brownies I've ever made [and tasted]. Perfectly gooey and soft!

First attempt digital scales went on the blink so I guessed quantities and the brownies rose and were quite light. Second attempt was much fudgier and I also put a little ginger in and some chic chips. Marvellous and so easy.

Ok, not stunning I must say but certainly go down nicely with a cup of tea!
