Check the cooking frequently. It is important not to overcook the brownie, otherwise it will dry out rapidly.

You can serve the brownie with real custard sauce (crème anglaise) a little whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or something more adventurous, like fresh mint ice-cream.

Remarks

The vanilla sugar is not essential. If you don't have any, use caster sugar instead. If you don't have pecan nuts, walnuts will work just fine.

For an extra-delicious brownie, you can caramelize the pecan nuts (Jeremy's idea).

For a brownie with a more 'cereal' texture, add 50g rolled oats to the mixture. If possible, toast these like the nuts (but only for 5 minutes).
