Passionfruit Choc Brownies


125g dark chocolate (70% if possible)
125g butter
150g light brown sugar
40g cocoa powder
40g self-raising flour
2 medium eggs + 1 extra yolk
pinch salt
seeds and pulp of two passionfruit

Preheat oven to 180C. Place some greaseproof paper in a 18cm square baking tin.
Over a saucepan of simmering water, place a heatproof bowl and in this bowl put the butter and chocolate. Allow to melt, then take off the heat and add the sugar, stirring til incorporated, and add the eggs. Sift the flour, salt and cocoa powder into this mixture and stir again, finally adding the passionfruit pulp.
Bake on middle shelf of the oven for 1/2 hour – the brownies are done when you insert a skewer and there’s some dense crumbs left on the skewer but no gloopy, wet mixture.
Allow to cool 1 hour before cutting into pieces, or eat the brownies whilst warm.
