Chocolate Brownies are one of the best baked desserts but only when cooked correctly. They are always a bit tricky as you can under cook them and also over cook them so easily. So trying to come up with a gluten free version that is also fudgy involved quite a bit of testing

RECIPE TIPS & FAQS
If you want the brownies soft then cook for 30 minutes, if you want them a bit firmer, then cook for 35 minutes.
Make sure the eggs have been kept at room temperature before using and are not cold. The mixture will mix more evenly and you will get more volume. If you are ever wondering why your baked desserts look flat then this could be the reason.
When the brownies are super warm they may break apart easily. So I recommend allowing them to cool in the tin for at least 10 minutes and then on a wire rack for a further 25-30 minutes.
You can store in your fridge for 4-5 days or in your freezer for 3 months when stored correctly.
