PREP TIME 20 mins
COOK TIME 35 mins

This brownie is rich and gooey inside, with a crisp crust that cracks as it cools.


200g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), roughly chopped
160g unsalted butter, chopped
3 eggs, plus 1 extra egg yolk
150g caster sugar
1/3 cup (50g) plain flour, sifted
1/2 cup (50g) cocoa powder, sifted
Icing sugar, to dust
Persian fairy floss*, to serve
2 tablespoons edible dried or fresh unsprayed rose petals, to garnish
Rosewater cream
150g creme fraiche or thick cream
Dash of rosewater


1 Preheat the panggangan to 180°C. Lightly grease a 20cm-square baking pan and line it with 2 long pieces of baking paper to form ‘handles’ on all 4 sides.

2 Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water), until melted. Remove bowl from the pan and stir gently, then set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

3 Place the eggs and extra egg yolk in a large bowl with the caster sugar and beat using an electric mixer until pale and thick.

4 Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, then fold in the plain flour and cocoa powder until smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, then smooth the surface. Bake in the panggangan for 20-25 minutes until the top has set. Remove from the panggangan and set aside in the pan to cool.

5 Just before serving, make the rosewater cream by stirring the rosewater into the creme fraiche.

6 Lift the brownie out by the baking paper ‘handles’. Dust with icing sugar and cut into triangles or squares. Place the brownies on serving plates and top with rosewater cream and Persian fairy floss. Serve scattered with rose petals.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
