THE BEST KINDER BUENO BROWNIES

Ok.

brownies

STOP EVERYTHING

It’s not everyday I say this.

BUT STOP EVERYTHING

LET YOUR TEA GO COLD

LET YOUR TAP RUN OVER

Because this insanely delicious recipe needs your FULL attention.

brow

You’ve heard of slutty brownies – Oreo brownies – Creme egg brownies

But where oh where is the brownie ode to Kinder??

Kinder have given us every kind of joy imaginable. From the elegant bueno to the fun sized happy hippos, the creamy touch of bueno chocolate is like no other.

browhnyummAnd it’s about time we had a solid brownie recipe that would honour this gift to mankind.

These brownies are a 9.67/10.

That’s high.

Am I biased because I LOVE kinder?

Maybe.

Am I sorry about it?

Not at all.

 

Without further delay, here is my new recipe that absolutely BANGS

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 100g Kinder bar chocolate (5 bars)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • 180g butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 100g plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 kinder bueno bars
  • Kinder chocolate of choice to decorate (I used kinder eggs, happy hippos and kinder bon bons for an easter theme!)

METHOD:

  • Line a deep baking tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 160 degrees
  • Melt the kinder chocolate – you can use a microwave on short 20 second blasts but to avoid burning the chocolate, place it in a plastic bowl above hot water
  • Once melted, leave the melted chocolate to cool (not harden)
  • Mix butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy
  • Add the vanilla and eggs and beat
  • Pour in the chocolate when cool (if you pour it in while hot it will cook the eggs and you’ll get some weird breakfast brownie thing that no one wants #dontdoit)
  • Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder along with the pinch of salt
  • Fold in the flour until it is barely mixed in
  • Add half the mixture to the tray
  • Get the kinder buenos and smash them up while in packets (heart breaking I know, but trust me)
  • Lay the broken bars onto the brownie mix (so it’s like brownie – bueno – brownie)
  • Add the remaining brownie mixture on top
  • Put the tray in the oven for 20 minutes
  • After 20 minutes, add your decorating chocolate to the top then pop the tray back in the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes depending on how gooey you like them! (adding the decorating pieces once the brownie is already partially cooked stops them from burning)

Allow to cool before you cut and LIVE YOU BEST LIFE

I just

I just can’t.

Thank you kinder 🙂

PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT IF YOU MAKE THESE!

I’d love to know your thoughts because I truly believe these are a game changer

Easter Mini Egg Vanilla CupCakes

easter12okOoo it’s Easter! The celebration of God loving you so much that He sent His son to die for your sins so that you can have and awesome relationship with Him, perfect peace and joy and love and what better way to mark a really significant world changing event that with these delicious vanilla cupcakes?

I can’t tell if that’s sarcastic or not. I am honestly unsure what baking has to do with Easter, but hey – I love any chance to bake so I’LL TAKE IT.

These cupcakes are easy, light and fluffy and will put a smile on anyones face. Ready?

Let’s go!

WHAT YOU NEED:

(Makes 12)

  • 200g self raising flour
  • 200g butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt

FOR DECORATION:

  • Mini Eggs
  • Ready made Vanilla Buttercream OR DIY
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 500g icing powder aka icing sugar aka confectioners sugar
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon milk

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Beat the softened butter with an electric mixer until it’s white, light and fluffy
  • Add the sugar and repeat
  • Add the eggs, vanilla essence and 1 tablespoon of the flour and mix
  • Sieve in the rest of the flour and a pinch of salt and continue to mix
  • Divide the cake mix into 12 cupcake holders
  • Cook on 150 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pic comes out clean
  • If you’re making your own buttercream you can do this while the cupcakes are in the oven! Beat the butter with and electric mixer until its suuuuuuuper white and fluffy. Add in the icing sugar (a tiny bit at a times to avoid a powder explosion/sugar coated kitchen.) Add the milk and vanilla and either pipe or spoon the delicious buttercream onto the cakes once they are cool!

 

DECORATING

I went for an ombre rose icing with a mini egg to top, but you can totally style these however you’d like! If you’d like to learn how I do the ombre icing then click HERE to watch my video tutorial (coming soon, editing videos takes a while sooory). I also used some edible glitter spray to make them really POP

Healthy Breakfast Protein Waffles!

I LOVE waffles!

8

I’m a firm believer in making healthy eating enjoyable. You don’t have to give up your favourite foods to eat well and Lord knows I did not sign up for a life of regret and taste bud abuse. With a few clever tweaks, you can carry on eating your favourite meals that will have you smiling all the way to the gym. (Can’t guarantee smiles on the way back from gym depending on sesh)

These high protein vanilla breakfast waffles will have you wondering why I haven’t won a Nobel peace prize. The glorious combination of ingredients while maintaining a light and fluffy texture is truly ground breaking.

Of course, to make this you will need a waffle machine! I use this one! :

91uG4e2H3PL._SL1500_

 

This waffle machine is THE BEST! Remove-able plates make it sooo easy cleaning! (As someone who has litteraly abandoned three waffle machines in the past due to too much maintenance effort, I can’t recommend this one enough. 5

LET’S GO!

Ingredients :

(Makes 8 waffles! That’s 4 breakfasts if you pop them in the freezer as a meal prep!)

  • 1 Cup Plain Flour
  • 1 Cup low fat greek yoghurt
  • 2 scoops (50g) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 table spoons of honey
  • 2 table spoons of sunflower oil
  • 3 tablespoons of milk of choice ( I used semi-skimmed lactose free milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • Fry light spray
  • Optional – handful of frozen strawberries for compote
2
The smooth mix of greek yoghurt and protein powder! (Tastes great with granola too!)

Method:

  1. Mix the yoghurt and the protein powder until smooth
  2. Whisk the eggs loosely and add them to the protein yoghurt mix, along with the vanilla extract
  3. Sieve in the flour and baking powder
  4. Add in the honey, milk and sunflower oil (adjust amount of milk to preference)
  5. Heat up your waffle maker (light on the top goes red when hot)
  6. Sprits with some fry light spray
  7. Add in 1 ladle of mixture to each area (aim to cover the base! Make sure you push mix into the corners to stop your waffle looking deformed)
  8. Close BUT DO NOT LOCK the waffle maker! This allows the deliciously light and fluffy waffles to rise
  9. Heat until golden brown (4 to 7 minutes)

4Optional:

  • Microwave a handful of frozen strawberries for 1 minute
  • Mash them (sophisticated word for mash please?) with a fork
  • Pour on top of waffles for a deliciously sweet, sugar free compote

ENJOY!!
