Specifically gluten-free fare isn’t something dabbled in particularly often at frugalfeeding. The fact these brownies contain no gluten is simply a product of my desire for the squidgy, dense and moist – enjoy.
Chocolate cake is something that should be bitter, decadent and, above all, moist. One of the best ways to achieve this, short of incorporating a multitude of sins, is to introduce a somewhat unexpected ingredient to the mix; courgette. This Chocolate Courgette Cake recipe is hands down my favourite chocolate cake of all time (so far).
Mystery surrounds the existence of Aussie Crunch; my meagre research suggests that it may be of British origin – it can be found with alternating success is some bakeries – but as far as I can tell, it’s not particularly well known in Australia. Perhaps no one has thought to inform the Aussies of their namesake, so I shall take up that baton (some of you lot must be from Down Under!). Still, they ought to be proud to have such a devilish and delicious snack named after them.
You don’t need me to tell you this, but chocolate and orange make a damn fine couple – formed between them is an enticing middle ground equidistant from sweet, citrus and bitter. Together they possess something instantly mouth-watering – perhaps it’s the pervasive aroma of orange, combined with the knowledge of incoming cocoa. Whatever the reason, chocolate orange mousse is a fabulous dessert that oozes luxury and decadence from every air pocket, yet it contains a mere five ingredients – one of which is water.
St. Patrick’s Day is upon us once more and though the Irish appear to have forgotten how to play rugby – they got stuffed by the Italians – this stout chilli is certainly cause for celebration. Indeed, as you may have inferred, ‘stout’ refers not to the build of the dish, though it is rather meaty, but to its contents. Guinness is, of course, the most popular stout and is one that, as popular opinion would have it, the Irish drink almost perpetually from birth. Could there be a more perfect St. Patrick’s Day meal? Probably not.
