½ cup oil2 extra large eggs, cold½ cup brown sugar ½ cup white sugar 4 heaped Tablespoons good quality cocoa powder1 level teaspoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon salt½ cup flour½- 1 teaspoon red chilli flakes
Mix together lightly. Tip into an 8inch square pan that has been lined with parchment/baking paper. You may also add chopped pecans/ chocolate on top. Bake in a preheated oven on 180°c (fan assisted if available) for 20 minutes or until the top is set. Do not overbake, the brownies set and harden as they cool. Cool completely before slicing with a sharp knife. Best served warmed up with ice-cream and a drizzle of hot fudge sauce (refer to Smith Island Cake, recipe in profile).
