THE bloke in The Shed was a little naughty this week. If he were a toddler, I would have sent him to his room to have a think about what he’d just done.
So, what did he do? Well, he cooked Chocolate Brownies. Ah, the problem, you ask? The problem is, because he’s on a quest to find a thinner version of himself, he left me to eat the lot. And the lot, I did. “Hmmm’’, I hear you all nod in agreed.
All I can say is it’s just lucky I’m breastfeeding Baby Holly and the weight continues to fall off me quicker than Rhianna’s clothes in a video clip. Now, if only I looked like Rhianna…
If you feel like being a little naughty in the kitchen this weekend, then try these rich, but yummy brownies.
1 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
¾ cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 packet white choc bits
Preheat oven to 160C. Line a 27cm x 18cm x 3cm tin with baking paper. Melt the butter, then stir in cocoa and allow to cool slightly. Beat in eggs, followed by sugar and vanilla.
Stir in flour and baking powder, followed by white choc bits. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 45 minutes.
Leave in the tin for 20 minutes, then turn out onto a rack. Cut into bars and enjoy!
