Easy Nutella Brownie

This easy recipe was shared by an online friend and not only that is easy to make, it's a lovely brownie. It is really easy that even your kids can do it to with minimal supervision :-D How not to when it requires only 3 ingredients and no mixer is needed.

I made another batch but added marshmallow half way through the baking. I am not a great fan of marshmallow but if you do you may want to, bake them in cuppies as it was really sticky and goey and I had a hard time cutting it.

What you need:
1 C nutella
3 large eggs
10T self-raising flour, sifted

What you do:
1. Mix eggs and nutella with a whisk or spatula till it well blended, it will look like a fudge
2. Add sifted flour and gently mix it till no lumps
3. Pour into a greased baking pan or cupcake casings and bake in a preheated oven at 160C to about 20-30mins or till skewer comes out clean

If you want to add marshmallow, when batter is still a bit jiggly, arrange them on top of the cake and continue with the baking.

Blended Orange Cake

It's been a while since I update this blog. Have been busy with stuffs but could not find the time to upload things that I have done over the past months. Today, I will be sharing a simple cake which was introduced by a friend. It uses orange, the whole orange minus the white bids and blend all the ingredients in. Pretty straight forward and simple.

The original recipe is taken from here but I made some changes to the ingredients and used my food processor for this cake.

1 medium size orange, cut into pieces and remove the seeds and the white pith as much as possible but keep the rind intact
3/4 - 1 cup of sugar
1 cup oil
3 large eggs
2 cups self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
some chocolate chips

1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and set aside
2. Blend together orange till almost into paste, add the sugar, oil and eggs continue blending till double in volume
3. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the flour and mix it well or you can pour the flour into the blender and pulse it till it's mixed well
4. Pour batter into greased 8inch pan and sprinkle chocolate chips
5. Bake in a preheated oven, 160 celcius for 30-40 minutes or till skewer comes out clean and not sticky
