Preparation time:

20 min

Cooking time:

25 min

- 100 g (4 oz) butter
- 225 g (8 oz) caster sugar
- 40 g (11/2 oz) cocoa powder
- 2 medium size eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 50 g (2 oz) self raising flour (sieved)
- 50 g (2 oz) milk chocolate drops
- 50 g (2 oz) chopped walnuts (optional)
- Margarine to grease the tin

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F, gas mark 4.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until smooth.

In a Tefal non-stick saucepan, melt the butter.
Take it off the heat and mix in the cocoa powder with a wooden spoon. Beat to remove any lumps.

Add the chocolate mixture to the eggs and mix thoroughly.
Stir in the vanilla essence.
Mix in the sieved flour a tablespoon at a time to prevent it going lumpy.
Mix in the chocolate drops and walnuts.

As this is a very sugary mixture, grease the inside of the Tefal 23 cm Square Baking Tin with margarine.
Bake at 180°C/350°F, gas mark 4 for about 25 minutes.

Remember to reduce the cooking time and temperature in a fan oven as they will cook much faster and easily burn.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the time. When cool, remove and cut into pieces.
