The recipe for silent children...

The English strawberry season has started! The ones in our garden are still green, although Little Miss (otherwise known as the Strawberry Locust) announced that one was 'almost born!' today. I thought we should fill her up with shop bought ones quick, to make sure we get to taste at least one of our own this year! Little Man asked (very nicely) for chocolate cake tonight as well.

I couldn't disappoint either of them, could I? Silence reigned as the Little People feasted, so I thought I should pass on the recipe so that others could enjoy the silence too!

Banana Chocolate Brownies

175g butter
300g light muscovado sugar
175g dark chocolate (broken up)
2 eggs, beaten
2 ripe bananas, mashed
100g self-raising flour
2tbsp cocoa powder
1tsp baking powder

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Centigrade.

1. butter and line a square tin or a swiss roll tin.
2. Stir the butter, sugar and chocolate in a saucepan until they are melted and the mixture is smooth
3. Switch off the heat and stir in the bananas and the eggs.
4. Now add the flour, cocoa and baking powder and stir in.
5. Pour the mixture into the tin and then into the oven for 30 minutes.
6. Allow to cool a bit then cut them into pieces and Enjoy!

Apparently they'll last up to a week in tightly wrapped tin foil, although I don't think they'll last that long in our house!


  1. I miss strawberries - those look delicious.

  2. This sounds deeeeellliiicccious! For an adult version I feel a spot of cream coming on! Will certainly try it. Take care and thanks for visiting. x

  3. Delicious sounding brownies - might have to give them a go :)
    Thanks for the comments about my crochet - got a little obsessed with it, but am running out of yarn and as it's Rowan I've got to save my pennies!
    Please join in with the book thing. I was trying to list my 10 favourite books but realised what an impossible task it is - so just talked generally about my reading habits. Autumn Mist took it a step further and wrote about significant books. I'd love to hear about what you like to read. I can't do the link thing - if you know how, please let me know. Take care. M x

  5. Oh the Banana Chocolate Brownies have me drooling (I think it is time for lunch). I've bookmarked the recipe as I don't have an oven here in Korea - but will make it when I return home to NZ. The combo of chocolate and bananas - yum. Thank you for the recipe.

    I love the look of your crochet blanket - the colours work so well. It is going to look stunning.

  6. I have come to your blog from 20 Minuters and it seems just in time for a delicious recipe .... I think I will be making this at the weekend as I have visitors due. Thank You!
