Christmas cake and Christmas pudding are ‘Marmite’ foods in our house but these naughty little treats go down really well with everyone, regardless of which camp they sit in!

Grease and line a 20cm square brownie pan and pre-heat the oven to 160C. 

In a pan gently melt the butter and chocolate – do this over a really low heat and stir regularly. Take it off the heat before it’s fully melted and set aside to cool, stirring again as it melts.

In a large bowl beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer for about 6 minutes until it doubles in volume and becomes pale, light and airy. Pour in the melted and cooled chocolate and gently fold in until it’s fully combined.

Sieve in the flour, salt and cocoa and, again, gently fold in, then crumble in the cake or pudding, including any icing or marzipan and pour the mixture into your brownie pan.

Bake on 160C for 25 mins then remove from the oven and let it cool in the tin. Cut into squares and serve.
