Essays, essays and more essays! The lecturers are being particularly hard on us all this semester. Still, I always make time for cake. I have a new problem though – it is the absolute ease with which I can buy cake books on my Kindle at nearly half the shop price. So. My latest favourite book is the Hummingbird Bakery’s newest: Home Sweet Home, and boy is it a good book!
The first thing I chose to make from this was a batch of S’more Brownies. I prefer to eat them heated up a little, but they are tasty cold as well.
I got really excited about using my chef blowtorch for the first time…but I forgot to get gas for it. So sitting on the floor in front of the grill it was for me! These were really straightforward to make and a yummy treat. Just don’t be tempted to cut these too soon if you are ever making them – the marshmallow is really stringy and sticky – so it is best to leave them overnight to set fully. I also find it helps to dip the knife in water before cutting as well, as this resists the marshmallow a little bit!
