Renos. and Simple Brownies

Okay now with the giveaways over I can post some new things! For those of you that know us will be aware that we have been renovating our home for a little while now. Well today we have had the wardrobe guy over installing built in wardrobes in both the main bedroom and ‘the babies room’ (although she is not really not a baby now! :) ). Yay I am so excited!!! I can’t wait to see the final product and finally get some order in the house!

On another note I also made some brownie cupcakes :). Who doesn’t like chocolate right?! This recipe is PERFECT if you want something that is pretty quick and SO TASTY.


1⅓ cups plain (all purpose) flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¾ cup cocoa power
2 ¼ cups caster sugar
4 eggs
250g melted butter

Optional extra:
Mini marshmallows
Chocolate chips

Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder.
Add sugar, combine.
Add eggs and butter, Mix together until smooth.
Place into cupcake pans. The easiest way to do this is using an ice-cream scoop- you will get the same size every time and it makes far less mess! (top with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips)

Place into the oven at 170°C (330°F) for about 25 mins. When cooked, brownie tops will be firm on the outside and a little mixture will stick to a skewer (you want the inside to still be moist!)
If you have topped with marshmallows they will be beautifully toasted. I use this recipe all the time and change it with different toppings such as dried apricots, nuts etc. and usually include some form of melted chocolate (to help the toppings to stick). Another favourite is to top with rocky road once cooked - I will share this recipe at a different time.
Now ENJOY your yummy brownie cupcakes!!!
