Chocolate Brownies

On Friday night I had the urge to make some Chocolate Brownies so rustled up a batch. The recipe I used is one that my sister pasted to me about 15 years ago and it always goes down well with the people in this house.

Ingredients -  for the cake -  225g caster sugar                                           
                                                40g cocoa powder                                    
                                                75g self - raising flour                                
                                                0.5 tsp salt
                                                2 eggs
                                                2tbls milk
                                                100g butter
                        for the topping - 100g butter
                                                    150g icing sugar
                                                     60g cocoa powder

Gas Mark 4, 180c, 350f - 40 minutes

1) Stir together the sugar, cocoa, flour and salt.
2) Whisk together the eggs and milk and pour in to the dry ingredients.
3) Melt the butter and beat in to the mixture.
4) Pour in to a greased,lined square tin and bake for 40 mins.

Place the butter in a bowl and beat in the icing sugar and cocoa. If the mixture is too stiff to spread add a few drops of warm water. Spread on the cake when it is completely cool and cut into squares
