The day started so well with me baking a batch of brownies, but soon turned pear-shaped when Hubby phoned to say he had broken his leg!
Now for the next 6-8 weeks I will be his taxi and we will be in each others company 24-7 a bit scary after being together 35 years!
(I'm also playing nurse to Rosie our dog who had a fast growing lump removed from her nose by the Vet yesterday).
So back to the yummy brownies. Here is the recipe:
- 200ml Vegetable Oil
- 125g Dark brown soft sugar
- 125g Golden sugar
- 100g Self Raising flour
- 100g chopped walnuts (optional)
- 60g Cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Sodium Bicarbonate
- 3 Eggs
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
Pre-heat the oven to 180
Lightly oil (brush the base and sides) with Vegetable Oil and add a sheet of baking parchment to the base of a 8'x10" baking tray.
Put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat together.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes. (You'll notice the surface will have a few cracks in it.
Leave to cool then cut into approximately 12 pieces.
