Oven temperature: 180°C
1. Preheat the oven. Grease a square 22 x 22cm baking tray and line the bottom with greased baking paper.

2. Place the butter and chocolate in a saucepan and stir over a low heat until everything has melted. Stir the sugar and salt into the melted chocolate mixture and add the vanilla essence.

3. Add the eggs one by one and beat thoroughly after each one to make sure that it has been mixed in well.

4. Remove the saucepan from the plate and use a hand whisk to beat the chocolate mixture until creamy.

5. Sift the cake flour and cocoa together into a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped pecan nuts. Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients and fold in with a large metal spoon. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and set it aside until cool.

6 Prepare the icing: Heat the cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and allow the cream to reduce by one third. Remove it from the plate and stir in the chocolate blocks. Let the mixture stand until it reaches a spreadable consistency.

7. Turn the brownies out of the cake tin and spread with the icing before cutting into squares.
