In the last 10 days I've made three batches of brownies. One batch of giant brownies, for Beck's baby shower, studded with plastic pink babies, one batch of little brownies (and homemade iced vovos) for Leah's 'Circuit' opening at Milly Sleeping and tonight I whipped up two boxes of choc delights for my students at RMIT. This batch is half bribery and half apology for stuffing up when I was teaching last Thursday. Got suckered there!
So I went and got a 1kg block of Valrhona 61% and pulled out the good vanilla. I love Bourbon Vanilla (I really love the vanilla bean paste but they were out of it). I had to get a personal loan to buy this bottle but it's worth every cent. Mmmmmm.
Thought I'd just make give you a visual sugar rush.
