  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 190°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 5) and line a 20cm square tin with baking parchment.

  2. Step 2:

    Melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

  3. Step 3:

    Whisk the eggs until pale and fluffy, add the muscovado sugar and whisk until thick - then gently fold in the chocolate.

  4. Step 4:

    Add the crystalised stem ginger, lemon and orange zest and juice and mixed spice to the chocolate mixture and stir through.

  5. Step 5:

    Sieve in the flour and fold in until the mixture is smooth.

  6. Step 6:

    Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes, until you see a paper-like crust on top, there should still be some movement in the centre of the tin.

    Baking Tip

    If your brownie begins to brown around the edges, loosely cover with baking paper to protect it whilst it continues to bake.

  7. Step 7:

    Remove from the oven. The brownie texture should still be gooey in the centre (it will firm up as the brownie cools). Leave to cool, then cut into squares.
