Chocolate Brownies

125 g (4oz) butter

125 g (4oz) dark chocolate

2 eggs

1 cup caster sugar

1 cup plain flour

2 tablespoons self-raising flour

3/4 cup chopped pecans or macadamias

Place butter and chocolate in a saucepan over very low heat and stir until mixture is just smooth.

Place eggs and caster sugar in a bowl and beat until mixture is pale and thick. Fold chocolate mixture, sifted flours and nuts through butter and eggs and pour mixture into a greased 20cm (8 inch) square cake tin (I used a biscuit tin). ÊBake in a preheated 180 degrees celsius (350 degrees fahrenheit) oven for 30 minutes or until brownies are set. ÊAllow brownies to cool and cut them into squares.

Makes 12 squares.
