Ingredients
  • 175g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 150g bar Dr. Oetker 54% Dark Chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 3tbsp Lyle’s Golden Syrup
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 150g light soft brown sugar
  • 85g plain flour
  • 40g Dr. Oetker Fine 100% Dark Cocoa Powder
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking paper.

  • Put the butter and the chopped chocolate in a glass bowl and place it over a pan, 1/3 full of gently simmering water (make sure the glass bowl doesn’t touch the simmering water). Stir regularly until melted, then leave to cool, before adding the golden syrup.

  • Using a hand-held electric mixer, whip the eggs and sugar together until it increases in volume and become frothy (about 8-10 minutes).

  • Pour the egg mixture into the cooled, melted chocolate mix and stir gently. Fold in the flour and cocoa powder and stir until well-combined.

  • Pour mixture into the prepared tin and bake for about 28-33 minutes, or until the crust on the top is cracking and the middle is soft but not runny.

  • Leave to cool completely before carefully removing from the tin and cutting into 12 pieces.
