Recipes

Food is about experimentation. The challenge in creating the food that my family and I love brings excitement to life. Being a future Nutritionist, I’ve been recreating my favourite foods in a healthier manner and I hope to share what I’ve learnt with everyone.

The classic brownie

Ingredients

  1. 120g of unsalted butter
  2. 200g of good quality dark chocolate (I usually use Cadbury/ Lindt chocolate 70% dark chocolate)
  3. 85g of plain flour
  4. 40g of cocoa powder
  5. 100g of white and milk chocolate chunks
  6. 100g of macadamia nuts
  7. 3 eggs
  8. 150g of golden caster sugar

Preparation time: 30 – 40 minutes
Oven temperature: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Baking time: 60 minutes (depending on your oven. My oven is really lousy so it takes me at least 60 min. Most ovens will take between 35-45 min. Once the crust starts cracking, the brownie is ready to be served)

  1. For the brownie after baking, may be good to chill overnight for a chewy texture when all the ingredients sit in :-)
