Make the brownie recipe step-by-step

You will first need to pre-heat the oven to 160 degree centigrade, or gas mark 3.

Step 1: Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Next you will need to break the chocolate into the bowl.

Step 2: Add a dessert spoon of golden syrup.

Step 3: Heat the mix gently using a Bain-Marie until the chocolate, sugar, butter and syrup are combined. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Step 4: Break in the eggs and sift in the flour. Next grate in the zest of the orange.

Step 5: Gently mix until it is incorporated, but don’t overwork the batter.

Step 6: Pop the mix in a lined baking tray and then in the oven for around 10 to 15 minutes. You will want the mixture partially baked.

Step 7: Remove the brownie before it is fully cooked to decorate with chocolate of your choice.

Step 8: Once decorated, finish the brownies in the oven for five more minutes, then place in the fridge to chill.
