Published in The Usborne First Cookbook, I first discovered this recipe when I was about nine, and I haven’t looked back since. They’re incredibly easy to make and are by far the best brownies ever – I once had a full-on argument with my boyfriend because he’d
eaten the last one. Never come between a woman and her homemade brownies…

Essential info:

Oven: 180°/350°F/Gas mark 4
Tin: Shallow oblong 18x28cm (7×11 inches)

Ingredients:

110g (4oz) butter
110g (4oz) plain chocolate
225g (8oz) caster sugar
2 beaten eggs
110g (4oz) plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
110g (4oz) chopped walnuts
a pinch of salt

Method:

1) Break the chocolate into a bowl and add the butter. Fit the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water and melt slowly. Once melted, take the bowl off the heat and stir in all the other ingredients.
2) Spread the mixture into the baking tin and put it in the oven for 30 minutes. Be sure not to overcook – they should still be gooey in the middle and will harden up slightly once cooled.
3) Let the mixture cool in the tin for 10 minutes – it will sink slightly – and then cut the brownies into squares. Cool them on a wire rack and store in a biscuit tin for a few days. If they last, that is…
4) Keep boyfriends away and enjoy all to yourself.
