Another record breaking turnout today at Cake Club, but fortunately Chris had risen to the task in style, providing a large chocolate brownie. He declared that it had no sugar or butter, or indeed, any calories in the recipe, but cracked up before he could be shown the door and then confessed that in fact it was the least healthy cake to cross the threshold of the tea room in recent months. He was right. It was delicious. His report follows.


1 cup melted butter
1.5 cups flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2-4 Tbsp hazelnuts

Mix the butter, vanilla and sugar, add in eggs one at a time.

Sift cocoa, flour, hazelnuts (optional, of course) and salt together in a separate bowl.

Mix together, and prepare for a workout if you stir by hand.

Bake in oven at 175°C for 35-40 min. I baked these for about 45 min.

We also have a bonus photo today, depicting Olivier demonstrating quite how powerfully sugary this brownie mixture was.
