I just saw Nigella Lawson prepare this recipe on TV and had to give it a go. It was just so easy to prepare and the brownies were perfectly 'squishy' in the middle. As Nigella said on her program "a brownie can never be too squishy in the middle". I am preparing a swag of them for Christmas day (any excuse for chocolate). On TV she added a handful of white chocolate buttons to the warm mix just before baking, I did the same for that extra gooey chocolate kick! Brilliant!

Five star brownies! I made these brownies after being inspired by a friend. I watched a youtube vid of Nigella Lawson making these brownies and it was perfect. I cooked a little longer then 25 mins, about 35-40 minutes I would say , but use your initiative as every oven is different! They cook whilst in the pan. The consistency was perfect. I thought it would be impossible to get that perfect speckle brown at the surface and gooey inside but incredibly easy for amateurs like me. Loved it.

I am sorry what a disaster! The batch has taken an hour to cook and it's got wayyyy to much sugar and they are not at all chocolatey enough! They also came out quite flat and I believe they may have been over whipped! And they are still cooking so that's a whole hour and they are still absolutely uncooked in the middle! Like batter level! Cool damn it!

I can't tell you how many times I've made these brownies, everyone LOVES them young and old. I've make them for my 2 children's birthdays since they were ooh about 7 years old (by request), cut into small squares, sprinkled with icing sugar and dotted with candles higgldy piggldy style. The secret is the BEST DARK chocolate which doesn't seem to bother children when made into brownies

This is the third time I have made these and they get better each time. I don't like gooey brownies so I leave them in longer - at least 35 mins at about 170. Then I turn the oven off and leave them in another 10 or so minutes. They are a hit at Kindy. Thank you Nigella!

especially when you take them out at 22mins because they're slightly gooey!
also great with Chantilly cream

you need 150ml double cream
some icing sugar ( not sure how much sox)
tsp vanilla essence

These brownies were effortless and simply delicious. They were beyond awesome with ice cream while they were hot.
The center was rather gooey and 'batterish', though.

Nevertheless, they were AMAZING for amatuers in the kitchen :)
