Nearly Brownies

May 2, 2011

It’s been a long time, everything has, so I’m slowing easing myself back into the world. With a vile set of exams upcoming that transition is slower than I might like. A week ago there was something refreshing about being able to maintain a distance from the world in order to immerse myself in revision; now, I’m bored of it. I’d like a holiday, thank you very much, from lectures to projects to (an epic and surprisingly enjoyable) fieldtrip to revision and exams, this course has been non-stop for so long now.

My level of distraction has meant that I found myself reaching for the beaters and making brownies. I found this amazing picture of chocolate-cheesecake marbled brownies on BBC Good Food years ago, yet I’d never made them. The picture looked fabulous and while I didn’t believe I’d quite be able to replicate it, my failure was greater than I’d expected. The brownie mix all sunk to the bottom of the tin and the cheesecake rose to the top. I’m not quite sure where I went wrong, I’ve double and triple checked the recipe, they tasted pretty good though, so I might be trying it again, with some tweaking.

I halved this recipe, maybe that’s where the problems lay.

From BBC Good Food
