Chocolate Brownie Cake (thanks Boysmum)

Made this again tonight. I have one of those food confessions to admit- I used compound chocolate. In the brownie mix I used Whittaker’s dark chocolate and for the other 100 grams I had a mix of white and milk chocolate buttons. I think it came out better with the less flash chocolate.  It also had ‘the’ crust that makes the perfect brownie.
So for the chocolate I used -200grm dark cooking chocolate and 100 grams of white and milk buttons.

Not the best picture and yes, I sinned and cut it in the tin. You can see the crust and the ooze.

125g butter
300g chopped  dark chocolate (I used 200g milk choc plus 100g white choc)
1 1/4 c sugar
3/4 c plain flour
1/4 c cocoa
3 eggs
Optional- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (didn’t use these – but I did put almonds on the top once)
preheat oven to 170 – line and grease a springform pan.
melt butter and 200 g chocolate – cool slightly.
combine sugar, flour, cocoa, 2/3rds remaining chocolate, some of the nuts.
add chocolate mixture and eggs.
pour into tin and sprinkle with remaining chopped choc
bake for 1 hour (or until a skewer comes out clean) – mine only took 40 mins.
