Brownies

I love chocolate with cherries. This is a basic recipe but the brownies turn out nicely.

150g good dark chocolate
100g unsalted butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
2 large eggs, beaten
few drops vanilla extract
100g self raising flour
150g icing sugar
25g cocoa powder
50g chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Break the chocolate into a small pan and add the butter and syrup. Heat gently, stirring until melted; leave to cool slightly.

Stir in the eggs, vanilla, flour, icing sugar, cocoa and chocolate chips, mixing until well blended. Pour the mixture into a 15cm square tin and bake for 25 minutes until set and crusty.

Cut into squares and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

I once met a lady who had been in the brownies, and she didn't turn out very nicely. Quite the opposite.
