Ok seriously, waddup with this weather? Firstly we had schizophrenic Friday, which was thundery then sunny then rainy. And then Saturday which was… ok Saturday was nice. But then yesterday! Cold, rainy, windy, 14 degrees… total hibernation weather… in June?
I don’t know what the hell is going on.
But I do know that a good chocolate brownie will just about fix anything.
I usually whip up a batch of brownies using my good ol’ tried and tested recipe. But this time, I thought I’d try Elly’s recipe, which uses muscovado sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and chilli. Except I totally bastardised it because I didn’t use orange (not a big fan of orange and chocolate) and though I had all the intention of adding chilli flakes, I bailed at the last minute because I just wanted good plain chocolate brownies.
They turned out pretty much like mine!
The brownies brightened my very grey weekend 😀 Hope y’all had a good one too!
