Father’s Day Moustache! Jamie’s

At the weekend as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, the kids and I made chocolate brownies using Flora for Father’s Day!

We were originally planning to make Apple Spice Muffins but as you can see from my my shopping trip didn’t quite turn out as planned!

I couldn’t find one main ingredient that was important for the muffins. This was some Flora Pro Activ apricot yogurt. So upon arriving home after visiting two different supermarkets, we decided to make Chocolate Brownies instead!

So we get together some products to begin making chocolate brownies. I like simplicity and ease in the kitchen as I can get easily ruffled! The kids help me to break down the steps by reading the ingredient list and getting the utensils ready.

Flora products for baking

I love our shiny brownie tin that has spaces to bake individual brownies.

My daughter starts pouring the Flora whilst my son measures. I love how interested and willing they both are in the kitchen. I always encourage this as I never felt confident in the kitchen, I never baked as a child and it made it hard as an adult! I’ve had to teach myself to cook from scratch and I’m now a competent home cook….. But it has taken a while! The Flora Cuisine is easy to measure out so I can leave them to do that part unsupervised.

I give them each a task, stirring and mixing. Everyone gets a turn to do the fun jobs, as well as the not so fun jobs like clearing away! This way they can both truthfully tell their Dad that they made the brownies themselves.

Here are the brownies ready to bake. I get them in the oven whilst we clear away.

My son clears away in his own style… licking the bowl clean! Even though this is a chocolate laden treat, I’m at least happy that by using the Flora Cuisine, we are being more healthy as it has less saturated fat than olive oil.

I wash up and clear my surfaces. With my growing interest in photography I’m trying to see the beautiful in the mundane. Everything I look at is through the eyes of a photographer, I am always thinking about how it will look through a lens! Even boring old wooden spoons and a whisk in a dish drainer can be beautiful!

The smells from my kitchen are delicious! Look what we produced! I think I put too much mixture into each section of the brownie tin as the brownies mushroomed over the top whilst baking like muffins! We couldn’t excavate perfectly formed brownies so instead we broke them free of the pan with a knife and put them into a sharing bowl instead! Also, we left out the flaked almonds from the recipe as other than me, no-one particularly likes them.

Picture the scene: Father’s Day, back from a meal out with the extended family, our little unit of four get home, lock the doors, get in our pyjamas and have a bowl of this with some custard! Heaven!

    Lucky dad! They already looked delicious and then you went and mentioned custard!! Doesn’t seem right to be craving brownies and custard at 9.30 in the morning :)

  2. Nadine says:

    haha thanks Kathie!
    Maybe if it was winter, it would be ok to crave brownies and custard so early!!
