This morning I woke up and decided I need to start Pinterest 365 Round Two. It's winter, I am busy with children, my sweet husband, creating a new life in a village, and yet I get the winter blues. And when I get the winter blues I tend to do something major to lift me up out of them which is what lead me to do Pinterest 365 the first time round! I was busy back then too but it was something for me to do in lull times and I absolutely loved it. It was a random, cold day in June and I made a brownie from Pinterest and kept creating something from Pinterest each day for an entire year! Well, the rest of the story is history and it's time to start and again
History repeats today as l once again start my second year of Pinterest creating with a brownie ... Why change a winning formula! That first day I made this brownie, today I am making a recipe called the ultimate brownie thanks to a recipe from Money Saving Mom. The recipe is pinned to my Recipe Must Do's Board on Pinterest.
Below is a quick look at the ingredients, all standard nothing that isn't normally in my pantry which makes it a great recipe to begin with ... so dislike when you see a yummy recipe and it calls for the oddest ingredients that are expensive and hard to find! For me when you bake anything with cocoa, it should be great quality and with no sugar added as it makes a much better finished product ... trust me it's totally worth it as the depth of flavour is awesome and I'm no baker but great cocoa makes you look like one.
The actual recipe is really easy, a little different to any other brownie I have made and the bonus is it requires no heavy machinery just a bowl and a spoon ... yay to recipes that don't require dragging out appliances. It takes about five minutes to bring together the ingredients and then it goes into the oven for 35ish minutes. My extended Otane family enjoyed it for dessert and it got rave reviews!! I served it up with stewed Black Doris plums and cream and it went down a treat. One of our dear "family" friends told me to throw away all other brownie recipes and this was superb, so I will definitely be making this again!! I don't eat gluten so I didn't get to try this Pinterest creation but the feedback meant I didn't need to to know it was a winner and my thanks goes to Money Saving Mum for this quick and easy yummy recipe.
