Brownie Point

First bake 

Thought of putting off baking till later
but Elsa has other plans -
there will be a bake sale in school tomorrow for charity
I guess I just needed this as a kick-start to resume my baking duties

I had to cancel my initial plan to bake in the Aga, as the temperature was a bit low in the baking oven.
So I had to use the electric oven instead. 
I must say I was a bit apprehensive with the "new"oven especially when it comes to baking cakes.
Nonetheless, the result was good 
and Elsa shall have some bake goods to sell tomorrow!

Let me share my favourite brownie recipe...

All you need to do is
melt together 6 oz butter and 6 oz dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl.
In another bowl, sift together 3 oz flour with 2 oz cocoa and a pinch of salt.
Break 3 eggs into a large bowl and add in 9 oz of golden caster sugar, whisk until thick and creamy.
Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the creamy egg making sure they're mixed in thoroughly
Gently fold in the flour followed by 4 oz of your choice of chocolate chips.
Bake for 25 minutes in 160C fan.

      Will keep you posted on the progress... so far, tinggal kerja yang kecik-kecik saja.

  3. Wow you ada Aga. Best tak? Macamana pakai aga ni. You kena pasang senentiasa ke?

    1. I love Aga!!
      Masa kat rumah sewa dulu pun we had a 2-door racing-green Aga.
      The only downside - I tak berapa confident sangat bake cakes in Aga, I prefer using my electric oven.
      And, yes, you're right, kena pasang senentiasa as it also radiates warm air throughout the kitchen

    2. Thanx yang for the explanation. Mmg kat Perth Australia tak leh pakai le unlike Perth Scotland
