  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Line square baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  3. Make the flax egg: with a fork, mix the ground flaxseeds with the water in a small bowl, and set aside for at least 10 mins to gel. You can also use megga exx mix!
  4. Chop the chocolate into 1cm chunks. Melt half in a microwave (heat in 15 sec bursts, stirring between, until melted).
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar and vegan butter with a whisk. Then add the flax eggs, melted chocolate, and vanilla, and whisk until well-combined.
  6. Into the bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder, and fold with a spatula until combined (don’t overmix!). Then add in the left over chocolate pieces and mix.
  7. Pour the mix into the baking tray and smooth out.
  8. Bake for 30-35 mins, until a knife inserted comes out clean.
  9. Cool for at least 30 mins before decorating with extra melted chocolate and the Doisy & Dams D&Ds.
