Ingredients

  • 300g unsalted butter
  • 600g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 150g cocoa powder, sifted
  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 300g milk chocolate, chopped into small chunks
  • icing sugar for dusting (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.

  2. Melt the butter over a gentle heat in a medium sized saucepan. When it’s melted, add the sugar, stirring with a wooden spoon (still over a low heat to help it blend with the melted butter.)

  3. Sift together the cocoa powder, flour, bicarb, salt and then stir into the pan; when mixed (this will be a very dry mixture, and not wholly blended at this stage), remove from the heat.

  4. Whisk the eggs with the vanilla extract and then mix into the brownie mixture in the pan.

  5. Stir in the chopped chocolate and quickly pour and scrape into a baking tin and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes.

  6. It will look set, dark and dry on top, but when you feel the surface, you will sense it is still wobbly underneath and a cake tester will come out gooey. This is desirable.
