OK, so this post isn’t exactly IDEAL if (like me!) you’re on a mission to cut back on the sweet stuff post-Christmas! But, I PROMISE you, it’s worth it.
This is the text I got from Lou of Vintage home decor and gifts (she also makes AWESOME cakes), after I made an emergency New Year’s Eve request for a gluten-free brownie recipe I could make for my brother and his family, who were visiting the next morning, first thing (ouch).
My lovely sister-in-law has to eat gluten-free and is an AMAZING baker (so, no pressure. Not that she was expecting anything, but after a 3 hour motorway journey in the rain, I thought she’d like something yummy along with a much-needed coffee and curl up on the sofa!).
I followed Lou’s directions to the letter – although the brownies needed a little more than 20 minutes in our oven – and they turned out a treat!!
The cranberries gave them a Christmas-y feel, but honestly, these would be delicious ANY. TIME.
When my brother called that evening to say they got home safely, my sister-in-law asked for the recipe (I nearly fainted).
In yesterday’s post, I said I’d be sharing more ideas from other bloggers, websites and experts here – from cooking to crafts, wellbeing to home organisation and LOTS more – so this makes the first!
Do check out, too, Lou’s new Little Vintage range, featuring adorable, customised children’s tees with beautiful appliqué designs!
PS: I know, why not show a photo of the brownies? Well, all that remained was a chocolate-y, cranberry-ish rubble by the time I thought to share the recipe.
