Fancy some absolutely gorgeous, fudgey chocolate brownies? Look no further - we copied Alicia's recipe and my oh my, these are amazingly good:
Here is the recipe using english measurements:
4 oz butter
4 oz plain flour
8 oz granulated sugar
4oz plain chocolate
1/2 tspn salt
2 cold eggs
Pre heat over to 325 degrees/gas mark 3
Melt the butter in a high sided saucepan over medium heat. When it is hot remove the pan from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Stir once and set aside to finish melting.
Line an 8 inch square pan with foil of greaseproof paper, letting several inches hang over two opposite sides to create handles.
Now stir the chocolate and butter mixture until it is smooth and the chocolate is completely melted. With a wooden spoon or with an eletric mixer, beat in the sugar and salt, and then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Beat in the flour until the batter is smooth. Pour into prepared tin.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes and test with a toothpick inserted into the middle of the pan. It should come out with moist crumbs, not raw batter. Leave to cool on a rack and then remove from pan using handles. Sprinkle with icing sugar and cut into squares.
