To make this little beauty, & a few of his brothers & sisters, you will need:
- 4 large eggs
- 275g of softened butter (or margarine, I used marg')
- 100g of self-raising flour
- 375g caster sugar
- 75g of cocoa powder
- 100g of chocolate chips
- a mixing bowl
- electric whisk or a manual whisk & a strong arm
- baking tin (I used 24cm x 20cm x 6cm)
Then spoon the mixture into a greased baking tin, gently pushing the mix into the corners of the tin, & put on the middle shelf of a preheated oven for about 45 mins (180ºC normal over, 160ºC fan oven).
Check after about 30 mins & if the top is looking crispy, loosely cover it with foil to stop it burning whilst it continues to cook.
After about 45 mins poke the middle with a skewer or sharp knife, if it comes out clean it's cooked, if there's cake mix on the end give it a little bit longer.
Once cooked, leave to cool, then cut into equal squares & serve!
When mine were finished they looked like this...
Yes, I may have tried one or two before they were fully cooled but that's just the excitement of baking for you :)
Enjoy with a nice cup of tea: perfect!
