Looking at the pictures, my brownies don't actually look too bad - but that's mostly thanks to my DSRL and a few handy tricks on Photoshop. Although I can whip up a pretty mean spagbol from the jar, I have never professed to be any kind of culinary prowess (I leave that to my cousin who regularly blogs all things yummy here). Getting into the Easter spirit yesterday morning, I decided to make Creme Egg Brownies with my boyfriend. Dubbed the 'combined cock-up' by critics (my brother and dad), this was an experience which forced me to admit that, at age the at of twenty-two, I am a bit hopeless at cooking. Now don't get me wrong, I like my brownies full of gungy, gooey goodness but these were definitely a bit more goo than good. Although the edge brownies were actually ok, the ones in the middle were verging on inedible. Now, to avoid making such blunders, follow the recipe found on the Creme Egg Facebook page (you can see it here), but definitely take the following amendments into consideration: when a recipe is clearly written for an electric oven, make sure you add roughly a million hours onto the cooking time if you're using a gas oven; doubly ensure you spread the mixture evenly in the pan (precise measuring with a ruler is recommended, as I later discovered); and finally, NEVER listen to your boyfriend! x
