Put your oven on 180c.  Grease and line a square baking tin (approx 30cm square) with baking paper. Break the chocolate into pieces and put into a bowl with the butter to melt over a pan of simmering water (do not allow the bowl to sit in the boiling water). Keep an eye on it and when melted take off the pan and allow to cool slightly.

Whisk the eggs with the sugar in another bowl until thick and creamy. Add to the cooled chocolate and gently mix together.

Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the mix and carefully stir.
