A blonde moment!

Standard

Speaking of brownies, in case the last post was too chocolatey for you (:o), here is a milder version ….  Blonde brownies …. Tastes equally delicious, and takes far less time to put together than washing the dishes!

THE perfect brownies!

Standard

It’s very hard to discover the perfect brownie recipe that meets all needs … Not anymore! Came across a very simple yet interesting recipe for chewy brownies on the Inspired Taste website the other day and could not wait to give it a try …

The only choice you need to make is how sweet you’d like them to be. If you’re a fan of dark chocolate then simply go for the unsweetened cocoa powder (as the original recipe involves) … But if you’re more of a milk chocolate fan (like myself) then use the cadbury cocoa powder to get rid of the slightly bitter taste cocoa powder involves. The rest of the ingredients are pretty basic …

Too lazy to bake an apple pie? Never mind, try this Apple Pie Bread Pudding instead …

Came across this fantastic recipe by Tasty on youtube a few days ago and could not wait to try it out. Though it does not taste the same as apple pie, but is a real treat for apple dessert lovers nonetheless …

The only tricky part is figuring out how many bread slices to use. Though the original recipe stated 6 slices, I felt I should have used around 8 as I did notice there was a bit more liquid left which should have been soaked up by the bread. Unfortunately I made that realisation after transferring the bread batter to the cake tin, so it was too late to make any changes. That’s why my version of this scrumptious dessert ended up more shiny and caramelised than intended. But am not complaining though as it helped keep it all moist.  Read the rest of this entry
