Chocolate Brownie

I love nothing better than a soft squishy brownie, that literally releases a volcano of flavour as you bite into it.  I whipped some up yesterday afternoon & cooked them in two different ways – in muffin tins as individual brownies, & then in a cake tin to cut triangular ones.  The different tins allowed for different baking times, so the ones we baked for a shorter time so they were yummy & gooey in the centre, & the others were more cripsy & firm.

The Best Chocolate Brownies Ever

Mix in one bowl:

  • 1 1/2 cups sifted Flour
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 5ml Salt
  • chopped Pecan Nuts OR Lindt balls (optional)

In another bowl mix & beat:

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup Oil
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 7.5ml Vanilla Essence

Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, & put it in a greased shallow bowl or as cupcakes.

Set the oven to 170°C, & bake for approximately 17 minutes.  The secret is to watch them baking & take them out as soon as the outside is done, leaving the the centre soft & moist.  You may have to try this several times to get it exactly right, as all ovens differ.

Extra:  I also added a scoop of O’Nutricia Collagen!  Yum.

You can also make some icing, or add cream/ice-cream, or sprinkle icing sugar on top to make them even more decadent.


We (i.e. husband & myself) finished half of the brownies before we left for our New Year’s Eve celebrations – they are even better when they are warm & gooey, but there is no harm in trying to save some for the next day.

Heavenly Apple Pie

I know that many people are not fans of baked fruit desserts, but believe me when I say that this will change your life!  This is a dessert that has been around in our family since I can remember, & it is my go to recipe that I use whenever I am making something for an event.

My family also loves this, & a memory that we all still chuckle about is my grandpa asking my mum to make her “um, delicious pudding.  What’s it called again?  Praise the Lord Pudding?”.  He knew the name had something to do with heaven/God & this is what his mind came up with!

So, here it goes!  Make sure you save this as it will be a huge hit – guaranteed.  Plus it is so super easy that you don’t need to stress about having to make something that people will enjoy.
