Ingredients

  • 300g (10oz) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 250g (9oz) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 400g (14oz) caster sugar
  • 5 large free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 200g (7oz) plain flour
  • 150g (5oz) milk chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • you will need
  • 20cm (8in), deep-sided square tin, lined with foil

Method

  • Heat the oven to 170 C, 150 C fan, 325 F, gas 3. Melt the chocolate and butter very gently in a heavy-based saucepan. Stir in the sugar and when cooled briefly, mix in the eggs. Don’t worry if it curdles; keep stirring and it will come back together. When combined, fold in the flour with a large pinch of sea salt, and add the chocolate chunks.

  • Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 40 minutes. Cool slightly before transferring to the fridge to harden, then cut into squares with a hot, dry knife.
