200 grams dark chocolate
200 grams prunes (pitted)
2 tablespoons oil
2 levelled tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pour about a cup or so of boiling water over the prunes and let them soak for about 10 minutes, to soften up. Drain off the water, then puree the prunes completely. In a double boiler (or in the microwave), melt the chocolate and oil, until it becomes completely smooth. Let it cool down slightly, then quickly stir in the eggs, one at a time, whisking constantly. Finally, stir in the prune puree and the cocoa powder and blend well. Line a baking pan (23x30 cm; 9x11") with baking paper, pour in the batter and bake in a preheated oven, at 170˚C, for 20-25 minutes. Let the brownies cool slightly, then slice up and serve.
