Rather than make the brownies from the cookbook like the recipe asked, I decided to leave them for a future week and use the super sugary recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. To say I had trouble keeping 4 aside for the chocolate filling is an understatement. I pretty much had to keep Kris' fingers off them by swinging a flaming torch whilst screaming 'BACK, BACK I TELLS YOU!'
I didn't have any 7" baking pans handy so I threw the mixture in my 20cm tin and took up residence in front on the oven with a cup of tea, making sure there was no burnage going on. Saying that, I did set fire to my nice oven glove while the brownies were baking, ooops! I don't know whether it was the fault of the bigger tins or I took the cakes out before they were ready but they turned out rather crumby, much like two giant brownies. I had quite a bit of trouble handling them and in some instances had to glue bits together with chocolate ganache. I think next time I'll make sure I have the right sized tins.
And now, my cake and I are off to my mums house for a lovely Easter lunch. Ta ta for now :)
