I cannot ride a unicycle

Dame Nevtlathiel, Lord Commander of The Order of the Brownie, but you may call me Nev :)

The pixies taunt me, they change my code while I'm sleeping


I met a Perlmonk in Real Life™! theorbtwo is a genuine walking, talking human being (or a damn good robot) and he doesn't look a bit like that big shiny globe on his homenode.

NB: The original recipe I have for this is mostly in cups. I've tried to convert it to oz and g as well, but I'm not sure how accurate this actually is. It's cooking though so it should be near enough ;)

{4oz} (100g) unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup {6oz} (150g) butter or margarine
1.5 cups {12oz} (300g) sugar
3 eggs
1 cup {4oz} (100g) self-raising flour
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 350oF/170oC/Gas Mark 4.
Microwave chocolate & butter on high for 2 minutes or until butter is melted.
Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
Stir sugar into chocolate until well blended.
Mix in eggs.
Stir in flour and nuts until well blended.
Spread in greased 13 x 9 inch (30 x 20 cm) baking tin.
Bake 30-35 minutes on middle shelf or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out covered in fudgy crumbs.
Cut into squares.


The first node I wrote that got front-paged was a silly one. It made it to Best Nodes of the Month as well :-D
