End of the school term always means lots of extra baking to make gifts for school teachers and assistants, office staff and lunch time supervisors, we always make gift for our club leaders who do a fabulous job all year round running Beavers and Brownies. This year Olivia choose Brownies so we found some pretty cups and decided to make Brownies in a cup. I rescued the go to brownie recipe from the fridge door…….a photocopied piece of paper from a Mary Berry recipe book that was given to me years ago by a friend has over time deteriorated so I really must write it out properly. Over the years it has evolved and is made in a range of flavours and even works brilliantly if you substitute the flour for gluten free flour ( I like doves farm self raising flour) and the fat for a dairy free spread. Just recently I have been experimenting with the new range of sugar and crumbs flavoured cocoa powders and I must say the chocolate cherry is my favourite.
We made chocolate coconut and double chocolate brownies for Our brownie leaders and I have posted the basic double chocolate recipe below.
Happy Baking !!
