- 6.1oz unsalted butter
- 10.5oz light brown soft sugar
- 6.1oz dark chocolate (good Quality, 60-70% Cocoa, broken up into small pieces)
- 3 eggs (beaten, Free Range, Organic)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 pears (ripe, peeled, chopped into small pieces)
- 3.5oz self-raising flour (sieved)
- 0.9oz cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Pre-heat the oven to 180C, 400F, Gas Mark 4
Grease and line a rectangular baking tray.
Put the butter, sugar and chocolate in a microwavable bowl and heat for two minutes on medium (stiring once after one minute) until melted and smooth. OR, melt the butter, sugar and chocolate together in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water (make sure the bowl isn't touching the water and don't be tempted to stir too much.
Add the vanilla extract to the lightly beaten eggs and put to one side. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, beaten eggs, and chopped pears into the melted chocolate mixture and mix together well - by hand.
Pour the mixture into your tray or tin and bake for 30 minutes until firm in the centre. When cool, slice the brownies into portions and lift them out of the tray (using the baking paper) and put them onto a cooling rack until you are ready to eat them.
