  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, 350°F, gas mark 4).

  2. Step 2:

    Grease and base line a 14cm square tin.

  3. Step 3:

    Put the chocolate and margarine in a large bowl over a pan of just-simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water. Stir until the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and stir until smooth.

  4. Step 4:

    Add the other ingredients to the bowl and mix well. Spoon into the tin, levelling the surface with the back of a spoon.

  5. Step 5:

    Bake for 25 minutes or until risen and firm around the edges but a little soft in the centre.

  6. Step 6:

    Cool in the tin for 15 minutes. The brownie will continue to cook as it cools.

  7. Step 7:

    Serve warm with fromage frais or sliced for afternoon tea.
