It’s no secret that Autumn (Fall) has made a swift exit and Winter is here to stay. The thought of being snowed in for days on end sends shivers creeping down my spine.* If you’re fortunate enough to live near the Equator, the Autumn and Winter seasons may be a fantasy only seen in movies (lucky you!) As painful as it was packing away my Summer wardrobe, I soon found comfort in knowing that this is the season of chunky knitwear, double duvets and hot bakes :)
For some time now I’ve been promising my readers that I would move away from the safe place of cakes and explore other bakes, today is that day! *Finally! I hear you exhale* Despite my sweet tooth, it may surprise you to know that I’m relatively health-conscious… that said, the Winter months are the perfect excuse for a foodie like me to experiment with mouth-watering and gluttonous bakes.
My first baking venture is a deadly combination of sugary afrodisiacs. A dark and rich bake that it often described with a deep sigh of satisfaction:
C H O C O L A T E . B R O W N I E S. This is the perfect sweet treat to have besides a cup of your favourite tea, whilst wrapped up in a blanket, and watching a movie. That is exactly how I enjoyed my plate of gluttony.
(N.B. I am not responsible for any weight gain following the consumption of these brownies. I highly recommend that you have a side of cardio for lunch. Eat responsibly.)
Love & Brownies,
*Let’s face it, there are far worse things than being snowed-in… 1) Being snowed-in without eggs. 2) Being snowed in without flour. 3) Being snowed in without chocolate!
