PREPARATION

Break the chocolate into smallish bits and cut the butter into small chunks. Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly with a fork, don't overdo this, just enough to mix the whites and yolks together.

Line the baking tray with greaseproof paper. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 5, slightly lower (170°C) in a fan oven.

COOK'S NOTES FOR CHOCOLATE FUDGE

We have seen and tried lots of chocolate fudge recipes in our time and many involve the use of a sugar thermometer and testing the various mixtures for accurate temperatures - too complicated and risky to our mind!

Granted, our recipe above is not true fudge, more a fudge-style traybake. But it tastes as good as the original, takes literally only 10 minutes to prepare and is almost foolproof. Cook it when others are talking in the kitchen and they will be amazed at the aroma as it cooks, how easy it is to prepare and the taste when it has cooled!

The mixture in our recipe has flour in it as well as eggs and this makes it much lighter on calories and texture compared to pure fudge.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1
Add the broken chocolate and butter to a pan on a low heat and stir frequently as they melt.

Add the sugar, flour and beaten eggs to the pan and mix vigorously for a minute or so until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the mixture into the lined baking tray and place in the centre of the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes.

STEP 2

Take the baked fudge cake from the oven and allow it to cool for seven minutes. With a sharp knife cut the tray bake into 20 to twenty four slices. Lightly sprinkle with icing sugar using a fine sieve.

Use a spatula or wide knife to remove the fudge pieces as soon as possible. If you leave them too long in the tray they can be difficult to remove in whole pieces.
