In my final excursion into ‘Baked in America’, I went all out. With a trusty sous chef (a sister in need of a vast quantity of baked goods for work) I tackled three different brownies in one day. As ever the recipes were easy to follow and I love the way all the ingredients are measured three ways. The section on American-English conversions, for items like chocolate and flour, is worth the cover price on its own!
Top Tip – Sainsburys Belgian Cooking Chocolate is a great substitute for ‘semi-sweet chocolate’
Left to right we have: Coffee and Walnut Blondies, Mile High and Snickers Brownie.
Really nice result, the caramel could be a challenge if you’re not comfortable with sugar work, but it worked fine for me. My end result is very crunchy – next time I’ll use smooth peanut butter and bake it slightly less.
One of my favourite from the shop – the mix of flapjack and chocolate is really nice. If anything this one is slightly under, the oats still have a bit of crunch,
Coffee and Walnut Blondie
Easily the best of the bunch, lovely texture and great flavour.
