Brownies and pancakes

Chocolate and butter mixSo I had a go at baking recently. Being a master of such exotic dishes as baked potatoes, bolognese and cheesy beans, baking was always going to be simple…

For my first Sunday baking session I attempted brownies using a recipe I found here. Once I got to the stage of putting the mixture in the oven I highly doubted that I’d succeeded, it just seemed too gooey. But surprisingly, they worked out! They were incredibly rich, but hey, that’s brownies for you. I was a bit shocked at the amount of sugar, butter and chocolate that went into them but I will definitely be making them again.

The next week it was pancakes! I know, pancakes are easy. But this is me we’re talking about. After a few mishaps, they turned out mostly okay but a bit salty and misshapen. So what next? Muffins maybe?
