A new face has appeared on BBC TV with a cookery programme.
Lorraine Pascale is a trained pastry chef and is setting about telling us how easy baking is – well she would, wouldn’t she !! If you see anything done by an expert it always looks easy.
Anyway, I liked the look of some of her recipes so I lashed out on the book that goes with the programme and decided to have a go.
I have never made brownies before and thought Lorraine’s recipe looked unusual so this is what I made :
Cookies and cream fudge brownies
The recipe uses lots of eggs, sugar, surprisingly little flour, chocolate and something I had never come across before, Oreo biscuits.
As it happens, I picked up the ones with the chocolate cream filling rather than the white filling by mistake, not realising there were two types.
You have to break the biscuits into pieces, mix some into the batter then sprinkle the rest on top before putting it into the oven.
I was a bit concerned that the ones on top would bake dry and become too crunchy, but they didn’t.
Et voilà. My very first brownies, looking exactly like the ones on the telly and the picture in the book.
They were delicious and definitely very easy.
