  • 250g (9oz) butter
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 250g (9oz) soft brown sugar
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 50g (2oz) plain flour, sifted
  • 75g (3oz) pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • For the fudge sauce

  • 20cm x 20cm x 5cm (8in x 8in x 2in) tin, lined

Method

  • Preheat oven to 170C, 150C fan, gas 3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl until thick and creamy, then add the sugar. Keep whisking until you reach the ribbon stage, which is when a trail is left in the mixture when you lift the whisk.

  • Combine the baking powder and flour.

  • Once the chocolate is cool, alternately fold the chocolate and flour into the egg mixture, then stir in the nuts.

  • Place in the lined tin and bake for 45 to 55 minutes until the top has cracked and the centre is just firm to the touch.

  • Leave to cool completely in the tin, then cut into 24 small squares with a sharp knife.

  • To make the hot fudge sauce, put the cream, sugar and butter in a saucepan. Heat through until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat, add the chocolate and leave to melt, then stir well.

  • Serve the brownies and hot fudge sauce with quality vanilla ice cream.
