Recipe Share.

Maria over at Dotty's Daughter was asking for a couple of my recipes so here they are for my chocolate Brownie, courtesy of an old Dr Oetker calendar, and the cherry oat tray bake I came across on the internet as I didn't want a traditional flapjack using golden syrup so just did a Google search. Hopefully clicking on the images will make the details slightly bigger but I think you should be ok.

With the brownie I make double the mix, use dark chocolate only, white is not favoured in our house, and bake it in a roasting tin that is 13x8 inches. I bake it for 15 minutes, check if it is still wobbly in the middle which it generally is, then bake for another 15 minutes. I bake in my Rayburn but you will be used to your oven.

The tray bake is straight forward. I use a square silicone tray about 8x8 I think and still spray it with low cal sunflower oil as it can have a tendency to stick sometimes. I don't put the chocolate on top as my men prefer it plain Jane!

Hope you enjoy baking your own versions as I've enjoyed sharing my recipes and tips. Really wish I could get some exposure so somebody would let me do some baking/review work for my blog, but I have no idea how to go about doing that.

Nom nom!
