We're having some people over for dinner, don't know what the occasion is, but my mum's made a lotta food and er, I, er helped by making a brownie and agar agar!
Tried out this recipe from Ruth Reichl's Tender At The Bone for the first time. Very fudgey brownies. Although dinner's not till later, I just had to cut it open to see what it looks like. Mmm... tempted to keep it all to myself now.

155g cup butter
140g unsweetened chocolate
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup flour sifted

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.
Butter and flour a 9" square baking pan.
Melt butter and chocolate in double boiler, over boiling water. When melted, add vanilla and set aside.
Beat eggs and salt in mixer. Add sugar and beat on high speed for 10 minutes, or until mixture is quite white.
Add chocolate and butter mixture and beat at low speed, just until mixed. Add flour and combine quickly, until there are no white streaks.

Pour batter into baking pan and put in oven. Immediately turn oven dow to 180 degrees and bake for 40 minutes. Do not overbake; these brownies should be fudgy.
