To make the Chocolate and Blueberry Brownies

  1. Grease and line the base of an 18cm square cake tin with baking parchment.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a large bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  3. Use a wooden spoon to stir the sugar into the chocolate mixture, then add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well each time until mixed in. Add the flour and cocoa powder and stir for one minute until smooth. Stir in half the blueberries.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the tin and scatter over the remaining blueberries.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes (180°c, 160°c fan, Gas Mark 4) until the top feels firm but the inside still has a squidgy texture. Test with a skewer.
  6. Serve while still warm or leave to cool in the tin.
