  3. Press into the prepared tin.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until firm.
  5. Allow to cool in the tin before icing. Cut into slices or squares and store in an airtight container.

Cooks Tips

Cocoa will vary greatly in quality depending on the brand bought. Should you need to, add 2-3 tablespoons more cocoa, don't forget to take out the same quantity of flour - otherwise the mixture will be dry. Baking tins are much easier to clean if washed as soon as possible after baking. Dry in the oven to ensure they are not stored damp and rust or go mouldy. Never scratch tins to remove stubbon remains as the cake or slice will stick next ime.
