Lemon Brownies with Lemon Glaze

Lemon Brownies with Lemon Glaze

I told you I was on a bit of a brownie thing. I haven’t made any traditional type chocolate brownies yet, but I found some lemons that were starting to feel a bit soft and decided a lemon slice would be good, until I googled lemon brownie and saw all the delcious pictures.  I was sold, and I’m so, so glad I made these.   They’re soft and fudgey in texture, with that kick of icing on the top that really balances it out.  It’s also very simple to make.

Ingredients: Canola oil 3 cups flour 3 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 250g frozen spinach 240g feta…

Mini Eclairs

Mini Eclairs

I have many blog posts waiting, but I keep forgetting!  This blog must be a resolution for 2012.  I have some exciting cake and cupcake decorating projects to show you, and I hope to make some tutorials up   Over Christmas I made these Mini Eclairs just to try them out… super simple, give them a go!  So good fresh, I wasn’t so keen on them at a couple of days old, but then I’m not always the biggest eclair fan.         What you need: 1 cup…
