250gms Unsalted Butter
200gms Darkest chocolate (I love M&S darkest chocolate, which by the way is made from peruvian coco beans so is perfect for Paddington Bear!!)
300gms Caster sugar
450 gms Marmalade
300gms Self raising flour (add a pinch of salt!)
Melt the butter in a heavy based pan, and remove it from the heat when its melted. Stir the chocolate through until melted. Add the sugar. Add the eggs. Stir through half the marmalade until completely melted, then add the flour. Then take the other half of the marmalade and stir it through but not completely, try and leave clots of it through the batter.
Pour into a lined brownie tray and cook for approx 40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool in the tin, then turn out and cut into squares.
Eat with a hot cup of milky coffee when toddlers are sleeping for maximum enjoyment.
I also use this recipe to make individual little cakes for dinner parties, but I add a teaspoon of rose water which makes them taste like turkish delight! They always go down very well served hot with a peach coulis and a scoop of vanilla ice cream!!
