  2. Over a very low heat, gently melt the butter and chocolate, stirring occasionally. Cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Do this with an electric whisk on full speed for about 5 minutes.
  4. Next, add the yogurt and vanilla, then pour in the melted butter and chocolate and mix gently until combined.
  5. Sift the flour and cocoa powder together. Fold into the chocolate mixture with a pinch of sea salt, using a large metal spoon. Pour into the prepared tin.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes and check with a skewer - it should come out clean. If not, bake for another 5 minutes. Cool in the tin for half an hour on a wire rack.

  • Make sure your brownies have completely cooled before attempting to cut them into squares so that you get a clean slice without any extra mess.
