So as you all know I am in Hastings for the weekend, and as everyone knows across the UK the weather is pretty shoddy :( boooooo. So that kind of narrows down what we can do in a coastal town… the wind is pretty chilly. While my sister was at school we decided to bake some brownies from a Mary Berry recipe (she is a domestic goddess and I think we all have a soft spot for her) although I didn’t do much baking as I was taking pictures, and actually learning how to use my Nikon on manual! Ooooo :) so forgive me if some of the pictures are a little blurry, still coming to terms with a camera I have had for the last 6 years… tut tut.
What you will need:
275g (10oz) margarine, softened.
375g (13oz) caster sugar.
75g (3oz) cocoa powder.
100g (4oz) self-raising flour.
100g (4oz) plain chocolate chips.
This recipe makes 24 brownies.
- Preheat your oven to 180º/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.
- Grease the baking tin and then line it with paper, pushing it neatly into the corners.
- Measure all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a hand-held electric mixer until evenly blended.
- Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, scraping the sides with a plastic spatula to make sure you have all the mixture! Spread the mixture with the spatula so that it is even in the tin.
- Bake the mixture for 40/45 minutes, until the brownies have a crusty top and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- If the mixture is browning too much cover them loosely with foil.
- Allow the brownies to cool before cutting them.

The finished product! I have been eating these all weekend :)
Lots of Love Daisy xoxo
