Chocolate brownie cake

Lazy Sundays are the best: you can catch up on sleep, do a bit of reading and be a bit naughty and treat yourself (brie cheese and avocado for me, yum!). If you're craving something indulgent and very chocolatey this chocolate brownie cake is absolute perfection. You only need a few ingredients and you won't have to slave away in the kitchen.
Again, I used a recipe from my beloved bbcgoodfood - it seems they used a really small tin, because my cake turned out quite flat - still pretty delicious!

You'll need:

225 g dark chocolate, broken into smallish pieces
3 eggs
65 g plain flour
200 g caster sugar
175 g unsalted butter
50 g pecans, chopped

Grease and line a loose based round cake tin and preheat the oven to 180 C/160 C fan.
Place 175 g chocolate, butter and sugar in a pan and melt on a slow heat, stirring gently. Leave aside to cool.

Once the chocolate mix is cooled, separate the eggs. Add yolks and flour to the chocolate mix and stir gently. Add chopped pecans and the leftover chocolate (chopped into small bits).

Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and  gently fold into the chocolate mixture.

Pour the mix into the tin, place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Dust with icing sugar and serve with creme fraiche or ice cream.
