I have a couple of good ones.

Our favourite (unhealthy recipe) is:

250 grams butter, 2 cups brown sugar - melt together then add 1 egg, 6 tbsp cocoa, 1. 5 cups flour and 1 tsp baking powder. Combine then add 1 tsp of Vanilla essence. Bake at 175 for 25 minutes.

The healthy one:
• 1 cup unsweetened apple purée/sauce
• 1/3 cup cocoa
• 3/4 cup self-raising flour
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
• 3/4 cup (70g) walnuts, chopped
Step 1 Preheat the oven to 175°C and lightly spray or oil a 20x20cm baking dish.

Step 2 Place apple purée in a medium-sized bowl. Sift in the cocoa, flour and baking soda. Add the sugar and salt and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix as this will toughen the brownies. Gently fold in the chocolate chips and the walnuts. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and bake for around 25-30 minutes or until the centre feels set and fudgy when a skewer is inserted.

Step 3 Cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes before turning out. Cool completely before slicing into squares. If desired, dust with sifted icing sugar before serving.
Make it dairy-free
Use dairy-free dark chocolate chips.

This is the NZ winner and is one the TVNZ website as the ultimate chocolate brownie.

The beauty of this recipe is that there is no melty-choccy going on, yet the final product is still dense, moist, and super chocolatey goodness that melts in your mouth with every bite.
The perfect combination of a little chewy crust on the outside with a delectably soft and rich texture on the inside.

The addition of raspberries make it the ultimate treat - I'm often too poor to include them, but if you've got them, it makes the world of difference.

I have won over many hearts, solved many conflicts, and sucked up to many important people with this, and often kept a well hidden secret... . So here it is!

320g butter, melted
•1 1/4 cups cocoa
•7 eggs
•3 cups sugar
•1 tsp vanilla essence
•1 1/2 - 2 cups chocolate chips/drops (dark is best)
•1 1/4 cups plain flour
•1 tsp baking powder
•Frozen/fresh raspberries (optional)
•Icing sugar (optional)
Directions1. Preheat oven to 160C.
2. Line a large baking tin/roasting dish (I use a 24x34cm rectangle dish)
3. Melt the butter in a large bowl (there's lots of ingredients to fit in here) in the microwave, or in a large saucepan on the stove.
4. Using an electric mixer, beat cocoa into melted butter.
5. Add eggs, sugar, and vanilla, and whiz with electric mixer for 3-4 mins until the mixture begins to whip up in volume (about double).
6. Using a wooden spoon/rubber spatula, mix in the chocolate chips/drops.
7. Sift flour and baking powder in; stir until fully combined.
8. Pour into lined baking tin; give it a gentle shake to even out the mixture.
9. If using raspberries, dot these evenly on top of the mixture, gently pushing them just under the surface.
10. Bake in oven at 160C for about 1 hour, until an inserted skewer comes clean.
11. Leave to cool in tin for about 10 mins, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool further.
12. If you want to make them look extra fancy, sift icing sugar over the top.
13. Enjoy warm, cold, with some whipped cream, with some hot coffee, or even with a sneaky wine!
