Tried these earlier this week and they were divine. It was my first time making brownies and I was a little worried with the process. They came out great - I did keep them in my gas oven for 25 minutes. They were floury and light whilst still hot and became more gooey as they cooled. I received a lot of compliments over them and am making them again later this week.

Although I cooked them for longer than recipe suggested they still weren't cooked. - This could just be my rubbish oven - anyhow - they were still fab - I called it a fondant pudding and everyone loved it! Am doing them again - this time I will try to cook for even longer.

These brownies are really easy to make and come out lovely and gooey – perfect to eat cold but work so well warm and melty with some cream or creme fraiche. Intense chocolate flavour and the mulled wine came through really well too, will be making these again!
