Towards the middle of the baking this has the most gorgeous smell, which runs like streamers through your home when you take the brownies out of the oven. This is my friend Artemis’ recipe. She makes them so often that this is the most familiar smell from her kitchen. She likes them with whipped, unsweetened cream. You can add some toasted nuts, apple or pear chunks, or anything else you think might go well. Serve these on their own in squares to nibble on or slightly warm with a dribbling of chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They also freeze well so I like to make up this big batch and freeze a few for an emergency snack, but you could also make half the amount in a smaller tray (15 × 20 cm/ 6 × 8 inches). I sometimes make this large quantity (in my big rectangular tray) and then cut it in half into two squares once it’s cooled. Layered with strawberries and whipped cream, it makes a beautiful cake. It’s a bit messy maybe to cut and serve but I have noticed all the kids eyeing this at our parties. Use really good-quality chocolate.
