There are no preparation pictures for this recipe because it’s just everything in one bowl so nothing very interesting or difficult to see. Don’t you just love an “all in one” bowl recipe? Just so simple and easy to clean up too.
So a bit different from the usual brownie recipe are these Lemon Brownies. You expect to have a light cake when you see them but they are brownies and brownies are more dense than traditional sponge cakes and these have a nice bite to them plus they have a great lemon kick!
These are just so sweet and make a real impact. They are all over the web so I can’t claim any right to them and certainly not my idea but everyone has their own little interpretation and this is mine.
You don’t need any electric mixer for this recipe. A good whisk, spatula and large spoon for the final bit and you’re good to go.
I make them in a 20cm square tin which should give you 5 trees measuring about 9cm x 6cm but it depends on your cutter. You do need a decent sized one otherwise once you try to cut them out, they will fall apart. Now if you’re handy with a knife then cut out triangles but as I’m totally useless, I rely on a tree cutter!
Blondies to me are like the little sister of Brownies – basically the same but without the cocoa powder and chocolate.
They are buttery, soft, chewy and very simple to make with no mixers needed – always a nice thing!
Blondies are the perfect bake for cake sales, charity bakes and perfect to transport. What’s not to love!
These squares are a cross between a brownie and a blondie and are pretty addictive! I love that if you use different coloured sweets, you can make this recipe for most of our celebrations. If you want a Gluten Free version, there are sweets that are a few varieties such as the ones from Aldi and the Dairy & Dam in Health Stores are gluten free. Regular Smarties are NOT gluten free.
I’ve popped a few variations of these delicious squares in the recipe below for you to try and as usual, I’ve reduced the sugar as they are quite sweet with the M&M’s and the chocolate chips. They turned out still sweet and very delicious! Quick and easy to make, easy to adapt …. what’s not to love??
You need to have some peppermint extract for the minty icing on these delicious brownies. If you really want an extra peppermint kick, add 2 drops of peppermint extract with the oil.
It’s a great traybake recipe that’s easy and a lovely change from lemon or orange. Mint and Chocolate are a great combination.
I should probably apologise for adding this recipe but it’s so good that I think you will actually thank me. Your hips may not, but one piece won’t be that bad *cough*. It’s a delicious nutty caramel layer which sits on a decadent brownie base.
The only thing to watch out here is that you can’t let the caramel burn or it will taste awful. You have to just give it the time it needs without interruption – about 15 minutes – and all will go well. So get a magazine or whatever you need to keep you stirring for the time required.
Traybakes are always a great idea for a crowd and Brownies are a sure hit. Combine both and you’re on a winning streak and this great one bowl recipe results in a rich, squidgy chocolate brownie that can be adapted to suit real chocolate lovers and those who perhaps like their chocolate on the lighter side.
Can you imagine, you just need 3 ingredients to make these quick and delicious brownies?! That’s it, just 3 main ingredients and you will have gorgeous, squidgy brownies in about 30 minutes. It’s great to make rich, decadent brownies but sometimes, you just want a quick brownie fix without any hassle and this, I promise, will become your “go to” recipe exactly for that reason. They have Nutella in them so if you have a nut allergy, sadly these can’t be for you 🙁
So if you’re ready, just get your 3 ingredients, bowl and 8″ x 8″ tray out and let the magic begin …. it will be ready to bake before the oven has heated up fully!
These gluten free chocolate brownies are really delicious, you would not know the difference at all (I promise) and have a nice soft centre with the added bonus of chocolate drops for something extra squidgy. Warning : these are addictive and I take no responsibility at all for their deliciousness!
