Method

 
BROWNIES
Preheat the oven to 160 °C.
Grease and line a 23 cm round pie dish with baking paper.
Heat the butter and chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan with boiling water or in the microwave oven, stirring occasionally, until melted. Leave to cool.
Sift the dry ingredients together.
Beat the eggs until light and fluffy, gradually beat in the sugar.
Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture, alternating with the melted chocolate mixture.
Fold in the nuts and turn the batter into the prepared pie dish.
Insert the coins in the batter.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the surface is slightly cracked and the centre firm to the touch. (The brownies should not have a cake-like texture.)
Serve with ice cream and berry sauce.
BERRY SAUCE
Place all ingredients in a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil. Simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Thicken with cornflour and add the extra berries.
Bring to the boil, then cool and serve.
