This recipe shows Plain Flour twice. Which is it 95g or 75g?

Gorgeous! Left mine in the oven a bit longer for the 2nd time as the middle was slightly underdone the 1st time. Tried it as was giving the jars as gifts but it will be my default brownie recipe from now on!

I used chips in the jars that were for gifts, but when making at home I just cut up a block of chocolate.
