Regular readers of my blog will know that I post recipes now and again. Recently I was offered the opportunity to work with Baking Mad. A fab site full of wonderful recipes.
One of the things that I love about Baking Mad is that you can search by theme, ingredients or recipe type. Of course, I lingered around the cakes and pudding recipes!
I have used their site for a number of things recently.
A celebratory Key Lime Pie when we went on our Forest Holiday:
As well as some chocolate chip cookies and a chocolate brownie cookie recipe – which recently went down a storm in this house (Ross told me that he would have paid to have had them in a restaurant which is quite a compliment from him!):
- 125g Chopped Dark Chocolate
- 30g Cocoa Powder
- 1 Egg
- 100g Unrefined light muscovado sugar - I used Billingtons
- 1tsp Vanilla extract
- 40g Plain white flour
- 1/4tsp Baking Powder
- 75g Dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C, gas mark 4. Line 2 trays with baking paper
- Melt the chopped chocolate with the cocoa powder and the butter in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir until melted and combined, remove from the heat and leave to cool.
- Mix together the egg, sugar and vanilla extract until pale and fluffy and then stir in the chocolate mixture and mix well.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and add to the chocolate mixture.
- Finally fold in the broken chocolate pieces
- Cover the bowl and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes, then divide the mixture into 12 equal pieces and place on the baking trays leaving space between to allow the mixture to spread whilst cooking.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes until the tops are starting to crack and look glossy, the centre should still be soft. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes then transfer onto a wire tray to cool completely.
With thanks to Baking Mad who sent me some ingredients in order to review their site.
