Put the cocoa, butter and sugar in your largest saucepan and gently melt, stirring so the mixture doesn’t catch.

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!
