  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease a 20cm baking tin and line with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a large bowl.

  6. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool completely before cutting into pieces and dusting with icing sugar.
Chef quote
You'd be hard-pushed to find somebody who doesn't love a good brownie. While everyone has their very personal views on how gooey or chewy brownies should be, my favoured texture errs on the fudgy side. Chunky enough to cut into manageable bite-sized squares, these could also eat be eaten warm with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream for a truly indulgent dessert. Enjoy!
