Chewy peanut butter brownies

Chew peanut butter brownie

These brownies are, very literally, my personal brownie points. Because, as I’ve previously mentioned when making peanut butter choc chip cookies, I don’t like peanut butter.

So when I make something with peanut butter in it for you, I feel this is the epitomy of where I should earn some brownie points. I baked this with love, and I won’t even eat any.

Buttermilk pancakes

Pancakes on a plateWhen I first moved to Melbourne I had no friends. True story. These pancakes are very relevant to this story.

Apple, custard and white choc muffins

Apple, custard and white choc muffins

Let me tell you a story about men, and the mystery of custard powder.

While serving these Apple and White Choc muffins up to a couple of visitors at my house, a man asked “how do you get the custard in?”

Good question. Very good question.

Well. I said. (I hesitated here…should I lie?) I used custard powder. I’m not quite sure what else he thought I would have done. (more…)
