I'm going to let everyone into a secret. I have made brownies lots of times, hundreds of times, millions of times ( ok I exaggerate) you get the idea, though. BUT they've always come from ...wait for it....sshhhh... a packet!
So yesterday when I made them from scratch I was quite pleased but thought it was definitely a lot more hassle - see, told you I wasn't a natural in the kitchen.
However, last night when I gave them to everyone they all thought they were far superior to the packet variety, so forever, I will now have to do them the 'long, messy' way. Boo!
