Progression

Bring to the boil 2 tbs of water, just as it starts simmering add the chocolate and the butter, remove from the heat and stir well. Let the mixture cool down until lukewarm.
In a large bowl whisk the eggs and the sugar until the mixture takes a light yellow colour, then add the warm chocolate, the flour and half of the hazelnuts.Start your oven at 325°F (160°C).
Pour the batter into a large square or rectangular baking tin (Teflon or silicon).
Cook for 30 min at a temperature of 325°F (160°C).
Remove from the tin and cut the cake into even squares (putting your knife in some cold water each time you cut). Sprinkle with the remaining hazelnuts.
Serve this chocolate and hazelnut brownies with some caramel flavoured custard for example. The absolute best!!!!

hello Not possible to answer you without seeing you preparing the cakes or without a precise detailed list of all your preparations (list and quantities of ingredients, time in the oven and temperature, etc... Saying that "they did not turn out cake like" could you detail how they turned out (too liquid ? too solid ? too dry ?)

For some reason they didn't turn out cake like. it was more along the line as they wouldn't cook. What did I do wrong? I'm pretty sure I followed the directions to the tee. I thought it was funny to have way more sugar then flour also. Can someone please help.
