Brownie Recipe!

I've been meaning to write up this for ages. During my NTConnection shows, I felt like I need a little treat. SO I got my thinking cap on and decided Brownies could possible be the answer! I should mention any recipe I do is Nut Free! 

Before you fully start this recipe, make sure to -

    • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4
    • Geese a Shallow Baking Tray 
    The Ingredients you will need:
    • Butter 
    • Plain Flour 
    • 4 Eggs
    • Soft Light Brown Sugar
    • Dark Chocolate Chips/chunks
    • White Chocolate Chips/chunks
    • White Chocolate Buttons 
    • Marshmallows (optional)
     Let's Bake! 

    1. You'll need to begin by weighing out 250g of Butter (it's far better to use actually butter in recipes because it has the right amount of salt. Plus it seems to taste far better too.)

    2. In another bowl you'll need 200g of Dark Chocolate Chips

    3. Weigh 325g of Soft Light Brown Sugar.

    4. Crack 4 eggs into a bowl.

    4 (continued). Whisk vigorously until the eggs are combined.

    5. Weigh out 250g of plain flour and sieve into a bowl.
    6. You'll also need white chocolate buttons & white choc chips (The marshmallows are an option!)

    7. Add the Butter and Dark Choc in a deep pan,

    8. And place on the hob on a low light and stir continuously until the butter and chocolate is fully melted.

    9. When the butter and chocolate are melted and combined (You can leave them on the hob on the lowest light but make sure to watch it so it doesn't burn!). Add the eggs to the flour and mix slowly. 

    Mixing, Mixing, Mixing!!
    10. You can now add  white chocolate chips (And marshmallows if you so choose) and mix again.

    11. With the chocolate and butter still warm, add the soft brown light sugar.

    12. Whisk carefully until mixed (Make sure there are no sugar granuals otherwise it can burn and leave the pan in an awful state!

    13. Once mixed take off the hob to cool for 5 mintues (If you don't let it cool, The flour mix will curdel and leave the brownies mix unsettled in the oven!)

    Waiting.... Waiting....

    14. You can now add the amazing smelling chocolaty mix to the flour and egg mix. (Note to self - Don't leave your phone near a really gooey mix, it's an accident waiting to happen!)

    15. Now you can begin to mix (Honestly the temptation to stuff my face in that was high!)

    16. Pour the mix in to a shallow baking tray

    17. Leave the mix to settle a little.

    18. Arrange the White Chocolate Buttons in whatever order you like. I arranged mine so that would bake and become gooey (And I felt it was the best and tastiest decision I'd ever made!)

    19. Place the tray on the middle shelf and set the timer for 20 - 30 mintues. 

    Ready to come out!

    20. Leave the brownies to fully cool and serve. (Tip - You could leave the brownies to fully cool and place in the fridge for 24hrs to become a Brownie-Fridge Cake! It's heavenly to eat on a warm summer day!

    Hope you enjoyed this recipe, I plan to do one every month :) If you have any questions, please do comment below!

    Bring Me Sunshine | Life as a Musical Theatre Student | #1

    Studying and training in Musical Theatre is an absolute dream at the moment, I may be a bit left footed when it comes to Jazz, but even when something doesn't go right we give it the jazz hands.

    The students are lovely and so talented, it feels weird to be the eldest and occasionally having to (literally) catch up! During my Fine Art studies I was sort of the 'middle aged' student, but the eldest was 47 years old.

    To catch up, what's been happening this past month?
    I had the opportunity to participate in Lucy Suggate's 'Swarm Sculptures' at Nottingham Contemporary and rehearse in the amazing new Dance4 studio in September.

    I also had the fantastic opportunity to go to my first premiere of 'Hood' in Nottingham for a pilot episode for the TV series starring, local singer/songwriter Josh Kemp and a fellow friends and actors, Adam Guest and Mik Horvath.
    It was so wonderful getting to finally catch up with them and would like to personally thank them …

    Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | Anita And Me

    In absolute excitement, I have been so happy and very fortunate to be back performing as Ensemble with Touring Consortium Theatre Company again in 'Anita And Me' at Theatre Royal Nottingham 14th to 18th March 2017.

    THURSDAY | 9th March 2017

    It's the first rehearsal, I am always nervous before meeting people but the fact I already know four of the ensemble members makes it just that little bit better,  Michelle Smith, Estelle Smith, Alice Gee and Marcus Whybrow who were also in A Tale of Two Cities back in November 2016.

    I have to be honest, it felt a bit weird to be going to the same rehearsal venue where I'm involved with two stage productions which ironically are being toured around the UK and each of the show's are exactly ten days apart - I'm currently involved with this production (Anita And Me) and The Grapes of Wrath.

    We have commenced rehearsals on the beginning scenes where myself, Alice and Marcus have to run on stage cause chaos in Tollington with t…

    Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | A Tale Of Two Cities |

    You may have noticed in previous weeks, the very delay in posting covers, vlog's and also posting updates! The past two weeks in November have been immersive and utterly incredible.

    💖 THURSDAY & FRIDAY ( 17th & 18th )
    The rehearsal day had arrived, since finding out my audition was successful in the summer, I had been eagerly counting the days down.

    On Thursday (17th) the ensemble also know as the Two Cities Twelves, introduced each other  - luckily I already knew some of the cast ( Mike Newbold, Marcus Whybrow, Michelle Smith and Alice Gee) from previous productions and also as friends but I was certainly thrilled to meet and perform with more like mind and lovely local actors and actresses.
    We commenced rehearsing on some of the scenes including 'The Hanging' - which reminded me strangely of my FMP (Fine Art - Final Major Project) earlier this Summer after creating my two five foot puppets.

    On Friday we commenced rehearsing the next scenes including my pe…
