Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Brownies

Serves: 12

60g dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
3 tablespoons golden syrup
75g lard
2 large organic eggs
200g caster sugar
95g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of sea salt
125g shelled walnuts

Preheat the oven to 190°C, 375°F, gas mark 5.
Grease a 28x18cm baking tin using butter or lard, then cut a square of greaseproof paper to fit neatly in the bottom. Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan with the syrup and lard over a low heat. Whist the eggs and sugar together in a bowl until light in colour and texture. Add the melted chocolate mixture, and sieve in the flour, baking powder, salt and walnuts. Stir and fold together, being careful not to over-mix. Spread evenly into the prepared cake tin and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until a crust has formed. Allow to cool slightly and then cut into squares.
