Decadent and rich - once you've tasted these brownies you'll never go back to shop bought!

Makes 8 pieces
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes


            
            
               
                  
                  
               
               
                  
                  
IngredientsMethod

                     
                     

150g (5 ½oz) butter
200g (7oz) dark continental chocolate
2 eggs, beaten
175g (6oz) soft brown sugar
55g (2oz) plain flour 
1tsp baking powder
55g (2oz) walnut pieces  

For the frosting:
115g (4oz) dark continental chocolate 
1tsp Nescafe Original coffee granules (optional)
142ml carton double cream
small knob butter


                  

                     
                     

Preheat
the oven to 180ºC, 350º F, Gas Mark 4. Grease and line an 18cm (7")
square baking tin.   Melt the butter with 55g (2oz) of the chocolate in
a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water. Beat the eggs with the sugar
in a large bowl, then sift in the flour, and baking powder. Stir in the
melted chocolate mixture, and beat together until well blended.

Chop
the remaining chocolate into rough chunks and stir into the brownie
mixture, with the walnuts. Spoon into the tin and spread evenly. Bake
for about 30 minutes, until the cake begins to shrink slightly from the
sides of the tin and the centre is only just firm.

 Meanwhile,
make the frosting: Heat the chocolate, coffee if using, cream and
butter to just below boiling point. Stir until smooth then chill until
thickened, about 30 mins. When the cake is cool, spread the frosting on
top and cut the brownie cake into squares.
