“This is our favourite brownie; it has a wrinkled top and a gooey middle,” says Mary Berry. “Perfect for eating as it is, or you could add a topping of your choice.”

2. Place the chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water until melted. Stir to combine.

4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared tin and bake for about 45 minutes, until well risen and set around the edges, with a slightly soft centre.

5. Leave to cool in the tin, then slice into 24 squares.
