  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

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

  5. Step 5

    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.

  6. Step 6

    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.
