This recipe is not one of my own, it was a gift from a friend- the ingredients and baking instructions all put into a Kilner jar. All except the eggs. It looked lovely in the jar and I didn’t make this for some time as I just liked looking at all the colours in it.
This recipe is one I have taken from my mums book of recipes, one that we often made as children, I remember always having great fun smashing up the biscuits with a rolling pin- perfect for anger management or getting out any stresses you may have!
This post doesn’t have a recipe sadly as my friend Hannah made these and it’s a secret recipe. She did tell me the ingredients however- dark chocolate, sugar, butter and a bit of flour.
They tasted amazing- so rich and this size of pot was almost too much. They had the perfect consistency, light and spongy on the outside, and oozing melted chocolate in the middle. I may have to steal the recipe from her when she’s sleeping…
We threw my friend a surprise party and as I love any excuse to bake I thought I would make a cake. I knew there would be a lot of West Indian’s there so thought that rum would make an essential ingredient.
So when I’m ill and bored I like to bake.
And this weekend I’ve been stuck at home with a virus. So out came my baking things and I looked in my cupboards as to what I could use for my creation.
My favourite type of cooking is finding things in your cupboard/fridge and making something delicious with it.
I decided I needed something chocolate and I like cupcakes as you can have just one (or three) and not feel guilty as they are so bitesize. This is what I came up with.
Nom nom nom…..
This was my first ever attempt at making fudge- and I think it turned out very well. Took it into work and tried it out on them- they are my guinea pigs for food. It went down very well with most people coming back for seconds, which I took to be a positive sign!
Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies.
Now that’s a mouthful! These brownies are much lighter than most other brownie recipes this means that just one piece isn’t enough- even more than usual! You could substitute cherries for nuts if you prefered, or even other fruit, but I think cherries work the best.
