We have our good friend Mike to thank for this recipe. He has a coffee shop in Glasgow, and keeps his clientele well fed with the best chocolate brownie we've ever tasted. It's also very easy to make, but be warned: once you've tasted your own you'll be spoiled for life!

Prep: 15 mins Cook: 40 mins Serves: 16

You'll beed a 7" square tin, buttered and lined with baking paper.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C / 350F / GM 4

  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over gently simmering water.

  3. Allow to cool slightly then whisk in the sugar and vanilla extract, then the eggs one at a time.
