Last weekend we headed off to the swap meet. I love browsing through the stalls. There's lots of good stuff to look at,some of it pretty pricy and geared towards the collector but there's also a tonne of bric a brac for the rummagers, like myself. I snavelled a few treasures and a couple of bargains.
There were some beautiful pieces of depression glass priced at $50 plus so when I spotted this one on a junky old stall for $10, I jumped on it. It's my second piece now...a collection yes?!
Cheerful linen teatowels, $5 a piece.
One lone doily, $1.00
Some vintage tins, $4.00 for the pie tin and 50c each for the cupcake tins-I picked up two. These old tins will be used in my sewing room to house vintage buttons and other treasures.
My friend Annie happened to have her neighbours recipe and I scribbled down a copy. I made a batch yesterday arvo. The kids got off the school bus to warm brownies for afternoon tea and they have been declared the 'best ever' chocolate brownies. Do yourself a favour and make a batch soon!
They are actually called Speedy Chocolate Brownies but of course we have renamed them at our place.
8oz melted butter
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cup gluten free flour
1/4 tsp baking powder (gluten free)
* I used regular flour and baking powder
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together with electric beaters.
Line 20x25cm tin with baking paper.
Pour mixture in and bake at 170 deg cel for approx 40 minutes.
Test with a skewer. This recipe is best undercooked.
The end result will be a lovely moist brownie with the perfect amount of crunch on top!
