25 g

15 ml

Butter

Cocoa powder

Eggs, lightly beaten

Soft light brown sugar

Vanilla essence

Chopped pecan nuts

Self-raising flour

 

 

Plain chocolate

Butter

Soured cream

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4. Grease then line a 20cm square cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the cocoa powder. Set aside to cool.
  • Beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence in a bowl, then stir in the cooled cocoa mixture with the nuts.
  • Sift over the flour and fold into the mixture with a metal spoon.
  • Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, until risen. Remove from the oven (the mixture will still be quite soft and wet, but it cooks further while cooling) and leave to cool in the tin.
  • To make the frosting, melt the chocolate and butter together in a pan and remove from the heat. Beat in the soured cream until smooth and glossy.
  • Leave to cool slightly, and then spread over the top of the brownies. When set, cut into 12 pieces.
