bake off.

a little sweetness to start off your week. an easy as pie recipe and a mounded cup full of indulgence. getting a good workout chopping up the chewy caramels meant i was in need of a reward. it's all about balance ladies and gentlemen. therefore a cup of white chocolate chips was equally balanced with another cup of pecans and then another full of chewy caramel shards. utter brownie perfection. why not see for yourself?

butterscotch, white chocolate and pecan brownie

2.5 cups of plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of butter, softened
1 1/4 cups of packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup toffee/butterscotch bits (werther's chewy caramels, chopped)
2/3 cups of white chocolate bits
1 cup chopped pecans

1. beat butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy
2. beat in eggs and gradually add sifted flour
3. add chocolate, caramels and pecans and stir well
4. spoon into a lamington size tin and bake in an oven for 35 minutes at 180deg
5. leave to cool and cut into slices
6. best served warm (put in the microwave for 30secs) with icecream or a big mug of tea

What are you doing to me!!! This sounds so deliciously amazing. I'm absolutely craving all things sugary at the moment, my husband is complaining about the amount of baking I'm doing lately! He's the dish man so I guess he has a right. But I'm pregnant so I have the right to bake too! I think I have an afternoon tea companion in the making. Hope you are well lovely x

What a delectable combination of ingredients. I have a feeling these will be too easy to over indulge in :)
