Ingredients
  • 200g Extra Special Ivory Coast Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces
  • 200g butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 250g soft brown sugar
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp chopped mint leaves (about 1/2 x 28g pack, stems removed)
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Line a 22cm square tin with baking paper.

  • Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl, then set it over a pan of simmering water - make sure the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water. Leave until almost melted, then remove from heat. Stir until completely melted.

  • In another large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until foamy. Stir in the chocolate mixture until just evenly blended.

  • Sift the flour and baking powder together. Stir into the chocolate mixture with the mint. Pour in the tin.

  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
