On Friday I bake brownies cause a friend is coming and wants to have a good time with her.  So, since I have not bake anything for quiet some time I think I make something easy first.  Also cause the ingredients that I have at home allow me to make this cake.  Some friends ask for the recipe when I put up the picture on fb.  

I used to have the book from NCC (Natural Cooking Club) with this recipe in it, but since I lent it out to a friend and have not got it back, I go their (NCC) page to get the recipe.

But I will write it here for everyone who wants to try it.

Pennylane Brownies - Killer Brownies


4 eggs
450 gr castor sugar (I use 360 gr)
225 ml vegetable oil
60 gr chocolate powder (like Van Houten)
210 gr all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla powder
120 gr walnuts (or any kind of peanuts you like)
85 gr chocolate chips

- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and butter/oil. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 
- Mix the cocoa powder, flour and vanilla powder. 
- Beat eggs and sugar until the sugar granules become more refined (don't over beat or you won't get the fudgy texture) . Add salt, beat again until blended. 
- Turn off the mixer, sift flour mixture into the egg mixture and stir well. Pour cooking oil, stir well. 
- Enter the walnuts and chocolate chips and stir. 
- Pour batter into pan, bake approximately 35 minutes. Test with a toothpick / stick clean. 
- Refrigerate before removed from the pan and cut into pieces.

Changing blog name

I am thinking of changing the blog name to 'my life in finland' since I want to share about some things in my life too in this blog.  While I still blog about things I make, I can also share of what I do what I think.

Winter has just begun here in Finland, I mean just because the snow has started only like two weeks ago.  Today it is not that cold, when Mikael want to play on the swing outside, so I thought why not.

After putting on all clothes we are ready to play outside.  The breeze of winter cold welcome us as I opened the flat building door, Mika just ran out to the snow which is about 15 - 20 cm high.  It is so fun, throwing snow at each other and pushing him on the swing ... he also play on the slide and got his body in the snow, listening to him laughing was so good.  He is a happy boy ....

have a wonderful winter everyone ..
