It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here! Hurray for Mars bars!
It’s been far too long since there was a Mars bar post around here. It’s also been far too long since I made brownies. The last time I made them was September! That just isn’t right. So I decided to finally get round to making Mars bar brownies, which have been on my to-do list for years (I’m not even exaggerating, literally years). Come in, there’s brownies!
Are Mars bars the finest chocolate bar ever created? Yes. Yes they are. Mars bars have got me through many an afternoon at work and I would eat several every day if I could. They are possibly my favourite chocolate bar and I decided I needed to make a cupcake based on them. Turns out these are my favourite cupcakes too! (more…)
Yesterday, I made my own cake recipe. I have, in the past, taken other cake recipes and, say, added chocolate chips to it, or switched the type of sugar used. But this was actual flour, sugar, butter, etc. quantities. I was scared. What if it didn’t work? Cooking is about being creative, but cake making is about science and, well, I’m bad at science. But it worked! It worked! Look at it! All… cakey! (more…)
