Friday Bakeoff: The Best Brownies

One of my daily favourite foodie sites is Jenny Flake's blog, Picky Palate (especially since, I have one picky palette!) When I saw her box-mix style brownies last week, I knew I had to try them out!

 Here's the recipe, and the pros:

  • Super easy, just mix with a wooden spoon until combined
  • Not as much butter as Jamie Oliver's recipe
  • Everything's mixed in one bowl- bonus washing up points!
  • Lift easily from baking parchment
  • 35 mins worked perfectly in an 8x8 tin at 165degrees Celcius for me

These are by far the best brownies I have ever made, they are less dense than Jamie Oliver's, but softer than the Ghiardelli mix (which can produce quite a hard crust). They cut easily and are deliciously more-ish, but yet not sickening.

I love that, like a box mix you could put together the dry ingredients and make your own brownie-in-a-jar gift for someone, particularly handy if you forget a birthday or run out of time at Christmas! :)

These are top notch, I implore you to bake them this weekend! Guaranteed good-mood-food!

Stay sweet! x
