Last week, I made some Brownies for my colleagues at work. One of them asked me if I had ever made them with nuts since he likes it so much. Negative. I have never ever made anything with nuts before. Except for almond flour but that doesn’t count. So, nuts huh? Challenge accepted! I must say they looked pretty damn good when I took them out of the oven.
First time ever using nuts, I think I may have exaggerated a little on the nutty intentions… But it was supposed to be nutty, so I think I definitely nailed that one xD
A while ago, I went to an event from Ben & Jerry’s in Brussels. I had my very first Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and was immediately sold. I was such a fan of the famous Cookie Dough that I made these Cookie Dough Brownies, inspired by the ice cream. Since that night, I’m 100% team Ben & Jerry’s!
Isn’t this the cutest ice cream cup ever?
Sadly, Christmas is over. You’re probably just getting over that indigestion, aren’t you :p Hurry up because New Year is right around the corner! And that mostly means: more eating & drinking! Hooray!

My personal favorite: these yummy Nutella Cupcakes I made for my Dad’s birthday 🙂
I hope you had a great 2015 and may 2016 be even better! Happy New Year!
Have a delicious day ❤
Find me on:
Apparently, I’m having a Brownies period xD
But you can never have too many Brownies, right?
Today is a very special Brownie-day. Why?
Because I’ve made Chunky Monkey Brownies!
Some of you might have heard about ‘Chunky Monkey’ before…
It is namely a flavour of Ben & Jerry’s!
Not that I have ever tasted that one…
But it absolutely brings a very interesting flavour to your Brownies!
Today seemed like the perfect day for some fresh raspberries.
And what else could be more perfect to go with it than some dark chocolate?
I say: Nothing.
If you know me, you’d already know what I’ve been making today 😉
I’ve made Raspberry Brownies!
I’ve made something special for you today!
Those who follow me on Facebook already knew what I would be using…
They could guess what it would be but nobody figured it out!
May I present to you: Spicy Chai Latté Brownies!
I’ve got a little treat for you!
I wanted to stay in line of Salon du Chocolat so it’s something with chocolate 😉
May I present to you:
Fudge Brownies with Fleur de Sel!
It’s only half covered in chocolate cream because one of my colleagues is allergic to lactose.
And since I didn’t want her to feel left out, I’ve made half for her.
It’s my second recipe from the awesome book United States of Cakes by Roy Fares and it didn’t dissapoint!
You probably wonder why I’m telling you this?
Well at first, when it came out of the oven, it didn’t look that good. I thought it was a complete failure and I was actually pretty convinced that I could throw it all away. Or at least not bring it to work because it was the first thing I brought and what would they think of my baking skills if I gave them this…
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Yes, the title really says ‘Nutella Brownies’ 😉
I know you want to say it, so say it!
You don’t dare to shout it out loud, do you?
Repeat after me: “NUTELLA BROWNIES!!!”
There you go!
Warning: Only for the die hard Nutella lovers!
A few days ago, I saw some awesome Christmas cookies on Instagram. Christmas trees with some drizzle on top of them. It was so beautiful. I just had to make something similar!
So I started thinking. I wasn’t going to make cookies because I had just made some cute Christmas Cookies.
But I could do Brownies! And we all know chocolate is ALWAYS a good idea!
Plus it’s my neighbours birthday so I could give them to him 😀 (my good deed of the day 😉 )
So that’s when my Christmas Brownies were born!
Last weekend, we had our annual BBQ with the neighbours.
We (the street) try to do this every year.
I believe it all started as a way to stay in touch with the neighbours and to become a bit more than “just” neighbours.
I have to say we’re pretty close with most of our neighbours, and not because of that BBQ 🙂
My dad likes to ride his bike and two of our neighbours do too! So I guess you already heard me coming when I tell you that they started their own little club (that has three members) 😉
Well, they are also members of a larger group.
Let’s get back to our BBQ.
Since the last two or three years, I always make the dessert.
This year, I went for my all-time favourite Brownies and my super delicious Apple Cake.
I tried Jhuls’ Blondies and they were A-MAZING!
Really, you haven’t lived until you’ve tasted them! The neighbours loved them too 🙂
So Jhuls, you did an awesome job with these! Thank you for having shared that recipe with us.
Besides the Blondies, I made two entirely new things. A Frangipane and a Speculoos Cake.
I’ll save that Frangipane for later 😉
But I am bringing you this Speculoos Cake for Fiesta Friday!
Little secret: this cake is some sort of basic version of my Luxurious Apple Cake. But without the apples and the brown sugar.
What do we need:
- 125 g butter
- 125 g crystal sugar
- 4 eggs
- 125 g self-raising flour
- 200 g crunched speculoos
- baking tin
Mix the butter together with the sugar. Mix in the eggs.
Sift the flour and mix it well together. Stir in the speculoos crumbles.
Put the batter in the baking tin and bake the cake for about 50 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade.
If it’s done, check the cake with a sharp knife. If it comes out clean, your cake is ready to be eaten!
I hope everyone is having a great Fiesta Friday at Angies with the co-hosts and all the others 😀
Happy Fiesta Friday!
Have a delicious weekend!
