Easy Homemade Brownies

I have a confession to make, I have never made my own brownies from scratch. For some reason I always thought they were complicated but after really fancying some I looked online at various recipes and made some of my own. They were really simple and tasted lovely. 

100g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
200g sugar
110g melted butter
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
50g chocolate chips or grated chocolate

Preheat oven to 180° and line a tin with greaseproof paper.
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and combine well. Pour into the tin and pop in the oven for around 20minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream. 

The best tip I found was to remember that brownies are different from cake, they should be a little gooey so the knife doesn't have to come out clean!
