125g  unsalted butter
3  eggs
200g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
125g plain flour
50g  cocoa
½tsp baking powder
3tbsp mincemeat


set oven at 180oC
line a tin with tin foil or baking parchment, leaving it higher at the sides
to help get the brownies out once cooked

roughly chop the butter and place in a heavy bottomed pan and gently melt
roughly chop the chocolate and add that to the butter, taking the pan 
off the heat stir until smooth.  Allow to cool.

put the sugar, vanilla extract and eggs in an electric mixer
beat for around 4-5 minutes until pale and fluffy

Beat in the cooled chocolate mix

Add in the flour, cocoa and baking powder and fold with a metal spoon

Then fold in the mincemeat. 

Pour the mixture into the baking tin, smooth the surface

Place in oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until firm to touch, but still squidgy
in the middle.

Gently lift out of tin and place on a wire rack to cool.... if you can

Or just start eating it!!

I have friends coming round and we are heading out for a walk, brownies on return, I have mentioned at work I am baking mincemeat brownies and so everyone will be anticipating a slice with morning coffee so we had better not eat them all today!
