Hot Cross Spiced Brownies

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1 hour
Number of servings: 16 pieces

Necessary Equipment:
15cm (6inch) square cake pan

150g (5.3oz.) milk chocolate
100g (3.5oz.) butter
2 eggs
50g (1.8oz.) sugar (or brown sugar)
* 100g (3.5oz.) cake flour (I think all purpose flour is ok)
* 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
* 1/2 tsp. baking powder
* 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder
* 1/2 tsp. ginger powder
* 1/4 tsp. nutmeg powder
100g (3.5oz.) mixed dried fruit (you can soak in 2 tbsp. of rum overnight if you like)
50g (1.8oz.) walnuts
40g (1.4oz.) white chocolate

1. Line the cake pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F).
2. Place butter and chocolate (broken into pieces) in a bowl. Melt them in a double boiler over hot water (60C/140F). Leave to cool slightly but not harden.
3. In a different bowl, beat eggs, add sugar, and mix well.
4. Add the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture little by little and mix well.
5. Sift in A and gently mix with a wire whisk or a spatula until combined.
6. Add mixed dried fruit and walnuts, then fold in with a spatula.
7. Pour and spread the batter into the cake pan. Drop the pan lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter. Bake at 170C (338F) for 25-30 minutes.
8. Place the cake pan on a wire rack until you can handle it. Then remove the cake from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.
9. Cut the brownie into 16 squares. Melt white chocolate in a pastry bag. Snip off the end, then draw the crosses on the brownies.
