There is nothing like having major elective surgery to focus your mind. When I was preparing my household for when I had my hip replaced I felt and acted as I did before I had my babies! There was this strong need to clean everything in sight, re-arrange cupboards and tidy drawers. This included all daily items I use so that I would be able to reach them without bending too much. And then there was this huge desire to fill the freezer, which I had to clean and reorganise first, I might add!
Well, I did bake up a storm as they say, and now I have had my operation and I’m at home recuperating, we are reaping or should I say eating, the benefits!
One of the slices in my freezer is a batch of Chocolate Brownies. Which I confess that I modified a cake recipe by adding chocolate chunks and baking the batter in a slice tray. The result was a moist chocolately brownie that you can eat on its own, freeze for a school/work lunch box treat or if you want an easy decadent tasting desert add some warmed berries and mascarpone cream!
