I’m enjoying the rhythm of baking on Sundays. I’m tagging my masterpieces with #sundaybakingsunday on Instagram, and hoping people might find a little inspiration to get into their kitchens and make something a bit more fun that school lunches or a weeknight dinner.
One of my fellow Blog With Pip students, Carolyn of www.carolynwritesitdown.com, suggested I bake something chocolate-y this week, and Donna Hay’s standby brownies came immediately to mind. They’re quick, simple and delicious – every single time!
The thing I really enjoy about baking is how simple ingredients, just six in this case, combine to make something so different from what they are when they’re just flour, sugar, eggs, cocoa, butter and vanilla extract.
Here’s Donna talking about this recipe – watching her show really opened my eyes to what a great cook she is. Just goes to show that food that looks fantastic, can actually be quite simple to prepare. I like Donna’s food philosophy – fast, fresh and simple (she even encourages store-bought ‘cheats’ which is great when you’ve got other places, aside from slaving away over a hot stove, to be).
So, another Sunday is almost done, which means there’s a sink full of dishes to do – but before that, I think I’ll enjoy another brownie and a cup of coffee.
How’s your kitchen looking? Let me know if you’ve got any great recipes you’d like to share.
