Apparently the cat needed a birthday. She titled him ‘biscuit birthday boy’ all day. So we made brownies. She ate it warm from the oven. Then put on a ‘dress’ and we had a candle and singing (yup – she made me sing to the cat) Then she ate his piece as well.

Brownie recipe

  • 150g Butter, 
  • 150g Dark choc (either ground in the thermix or blender or melted) You could also chop finely by hand
  • 100g of sugar (this was 150g but I think 100g is plenty sweet for us) 
  • 80g Flour (I use organic stoneground white but whatever works for you) 
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of home made yoghurt (or about 60g of milk) Our homemade is a slightly sweetened Greek yoghurt.
  • 1 tablespoon of coco powder
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder (or use self raising flour instead) 
  • Dash of vanilla essence
You can also add freeze-dried or frozen berries for extra yum. If using freeze-dried add a extras splash of milk to compensate the liquid they will absorb.

I mix everything but the flour together, beat well, then add the flour – mix gently then pour into brownie tin and bake at 180 for 30-35 mins for a slightly cakey brownie or 160-170 for 45 mins for a more gooey brownie.

    That brownie looks seriously good! And I think she would get on very well with Maria! We have birthdays regularly for the animals – both real and stuffed. All with candles, singing – and lights have to be off too! She’s just started getting into ‘party planning’ for them all now too!

      Its not the most super dooper fudgy gooey recipe, but it never fails me and is very simple which is a win in this house! Also it freezes well.
