Easy Dark Chocolate Brownies

Easy Brownie RecipeOur last recipe, cherry chocolate brownies, was a hit! I still had some ingredients left over so I decided I would make some super simple dark chocolate brownies. The method is slightly different to our cherry brownies, but I think I prefer this new version.

These delicious brownies only take around 10 minutes to prepare, and 25-30 minutes in the oven – easy!

Wild Blackberry Pie

Blackberry Pie RecipeAfter a long break, I’m back to baking. Keeping the theme of my last recipe, I’ve decided to cook up a lovely deep-purple blackberry pie. We’d picked about two kilograms of wild blackberries in August last year and they’d been sat in the freezer ever since – we couldn’t quite decided what to do with so many!

This recipe is quick, simple and delicious.

Sorry I’ve been away!

It’s been a little while since I posted anything on my blog. 5 months to be specific.

This is mainly due to lack of motivation, time and commitment. This being said, I’ll be making a real push in to getting this blog up and running again. I’ll be posting new recipes at least once a week (more if time permits), as well as reviews, tips and other bits and bobs from now on.

I’ve spent this afternoon baking a lovely deep purple blackberry pie, which I’ll post the recipe for tomorrow morning. We had tonnes of blackberries tucked away in the freezer that we’d picked back in August – we couldn’t decide what to do with them. Hopefully it’ll turn out as great as it smells!
