    Delia's Brazil nut brownies

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes, plus cooling
    • Total time: 35 minutes, plus cooling

    Makes: 12


    125g dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids), broken up
    175g block butter
    3 large eggs
    275g golden caster sugar
    75g plain flour
    1 level teaspoon baking powder
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    150g Brazil nuts, toasted and roughly chopped, or any other nuts, or a mixture

    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4

    Equipment: A Silverwood oblong tin 20cm by 26cm, 4cm deep, greased and lined


    First put the broken-up chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan containing 5cm of barely simmering water, without the bowl touching the water. When it has melted (5–10 minutes) take it off the heat. 

    Next whisk the eggs and sugar lightly together – but don’t overdo this. Stir the egg mixture and all the other ingredients into the chocolate. 

    Then pour the mixture into the tin and bake near the centre of the oven for 30 minutes until springy in the middle. 

    Leave the cake in the tin to go completely cold before dividing into roughly twelve squares and store in an airtight tin.
