from 'Blissful Brownies' - Marks & Spencer

INGREDIENTS [makes 20]

225g / 8oz unsalted butter [plus extra for greasing]
70g / 2½ oz plain chocolate
125g / 4½ oz plain flour
☐ ¾ tsp bicarbonate of soda
☐ ¼ tsp baking powder
55g / 2 oz pecan nuts
100g / 3½ oz demerara sugar [plus extra for decoration]
☐ ½ tsp almond extract
1 egg
1 tsp milk


Preheat the oven to 180c / 350f / Gas Mark 4. Grease & line a 28x18 cm / 11x7 inch rectangular baking tin
Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water and heat until the chocolate is melted. Meanwhile, stir together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder in a large bowl.
Finely chop the pecan nuts and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, and then mix in the almond extract and the egg. Remove the chocolate from the heat and stir into the butter mixture. Add the flour mixture, milk and chopped nuts to the bowl and stir until well combined.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tin and smooth it. Place the baking tin into the preheated oven and bake for roughly 30 minutes, or until firm to the touch (NOTE: it should still be a little soft in the centre). Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely. Decorate with the remaining sugar, cut into 20 squares and serve.

Many apologies for the lateness of this entry - been overloaded with university coursework and job stuff BUT I should be up and running more consistantly over the next couple of weeks
