I love to cook. I like to bake, but I’m a bit hit and miss in my efforts – half the time things work out brilliantly, the other half, meh!
On Tuesday, I decided to celebrate my weight loss by baking some brownies. I found a recipe for half-syn brownies and thought that would be pretty much perfect – something I could share with my family, and feel like I was indulging but not blow my syn allowance.
So I followed the recipe, and popped it in the oven.
Then they were ready.
They smelled gorgeous.
They looked pretty darned good.
I cut them into 25 evenly-sized pieces, and gave one to each of my boys and my hubby, then took one for myself.
We all took a bite…
… and immediately spat them out.
The texture was fine – more cakey than brownie-ish, but it was a nice enough texture. But the flavour left an awful lot to be desired. It was bitter and not at all luxurious.
I shall look for a slightly more synful recipe that I can enjoy once in a while instead.
