brownies renounced

I've been naughty.

Need I say more? Probably not.

But here is the recipe for these scrummy brownies:

250g butter, chopped
1 and a half cups castor sugar
1 and a 1/4 cups plain flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa
4 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla

Pre-heat oven to 180 C / 350 F. Lightly grease a muffin tray.
Put the butter and sugar into a microwavable bowl. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir when finished.
In the meantime, sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the eggs and vanilla.
Pour in the butter mixture and gently mix until well combined (don't over-mix).
Spoon into the muffin holes, filling to the top.
Bake for 20-23 minutes until firm.

Very, very easy. And VERY yummy.

However, I feel I need to make an announcement which may affect future procrastibakings. I have decided to stop snacking for the next month. My flatmates have been notified, and will be on the lookout for any covert snack-eating. This basically means I am no longer allowed to eat cakes, chocolate, lollies, chips, etc. (But I can eat as much fruit or veges as I want between meals.) This doesn't mean I can't bake anything, but as I can't eat it afterward I imagine the motivation will not be high.

I made sure I ate the last brownie before I started the new regime, though. :)
