Double chocolate brownies

80g butter
40g cocoa powder
145g caster sugar
2 eggs
60g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
100g chocolate chips

Preheat the oven on to 180 degrees. Brush your cake tin with oil or melted butter, put piece of baking paper in the bottom

Melt the butter in a saucepan. When it is ready, take it off the heat and stir in the cocoa and sugar, followed by the eggs.

Put a sieve over the saucepan and tip in the flour and baking powder, along with a pinch of salt. Sift everything into the saucepan, then mix it in. Make sure you don’t have any pockets of flour. Add the chocolate chips and stir them in.

Pour the mixture into your tin and bake it for 30 minutes. If you have used a different sized tin, the cooking time may be shorter or longer. You will know your brownies are cooked when you can poke a skewer or knife into the middle of them and it comes out clean. Remember though, the chocolate chips may have melted and if your skewer hits one of those, it might look as if the mixture is still wet. Leave the slab to cool in the tin, then tip it out and cut it into brownie pieces.

Ugh I should have bought vanilla ice cream to go with the brownies. It’s just not complete without it!

I couldn’t find any chocolate chips at Waitrose so instead I used white chocolate chunks.
