Brownies oh brownies! How I love them! They are my favorite sweet treat, I'd have them at any time, any day!
I've tried quite a lot of brownie recipes and this is the one I liked the most. It's from (one of my favorites cookbooks) 101 Cakes and Bakes by BBC Books. They have the perfect thick and rich texture, super chocolatey and simply irresistible. I'm pretty sure you'll love these brownies if you try this recipe some day. Alert: they're so addictive you won't have enough with just one portion! ;-)

(serves 16 pieces)
350g dark chocolate (50-60% cocoa), chopped.
250g unsalted butter, chopped.
3 large eggs.
250g muscovado sugar.
1 teaspoon baking powder.
Preheat oven to 160ºC (320ºF). Butter and line the base of a shallow 23cm/9inch square cake tin.
In a saucepan melt together chocolate and butter, stir well and set aside to cool.
Whisk eggs until pale, add in sugar until well combined. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture, carefully. Finally sift in flour and baking powder stirring slowly until you have a smooth batter.
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for around 35 minutes (I believe you won't need to bake it more time).Test by inserting a wooden stick into the middle, there should be a few moist crumbs sticking to it. The mixture will still be soft in the centre, but will firm up on cooling.
Cool in the tin on a wire rack for at least 1 hour, then cut into 16 squares and finish cooling on the rack.
