Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

OK. Forgot I made these but had to share. They're basically everything cake should be. Recipe taken from the Hummingbird Bakery (obvs).

Chewy brownie topped with cheesecake (really basic don't let that put you off) and topped with whipped cream with raspebrry (again reeeeally easy).

So basically they look fab with not much effort. Really worth making. They are quite sweet though, so as nice as they are you wouldn't be wanting more than one!

Also worth noting it's quite tricky to get the timing just right so that you bake the brownie enough while not burning the cheesecake. I found baking them at a slightly lower temperature than specified and for longer worked better in my really hot oven.

Peanut Butter Blondies

It's been a while... sorry!

Anyway, work have been doing their own version of the 'Great British Bake Off' recently. For my entry into this prestigious event I decided to make a take on blondies. I was originally going to plum for regular brownies (as who doesn't LOVE those?) but decided to be a bit more adventurous and so made these. They're chewy, buttery, chocolatey, nutty pieces of heaven. Think it may have been a slight tactical error however as not everyone really loves peanuts!

I do think they turned out really well, and can't tell you how easy they were to make :)

The recipe I used was from Series 2 of Channel 4's Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard. (recipe can be found on-line).
