I made brownies yesterday, using various online recipes as a guideline and my measuring jug instead of a set of scales (which I don't have). I used melted dark chocolate, butter, raw demerera sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and two eggs. That amount was just right for the baking tray that came with my mini oven. After 25 minutes the surface was still soft to the touch but after it had cooled it was done almost all the way through, possibly a bit too dry on top. However, they tasted rather lovely, not too sweet, not too bitter.

I have a digital scale. I rarely use it. Usually I use it when weighing out the pets' raw food. Heh.

Yeah, I needed one for the Daring Bakers/Daring Cooks as I got tired of having to convert everything over (despite the measurements supposed to be in cups, ounces, grams, etc, as per the guidelines, not every host/hostess does it.}:P)

Nice. However I cannot eat them anymore due to my diet.

I am now diabetic so love to eat them, but I know I pay the price later with my medication.

Drooling is bad for my keyboard. Your photos make me drool.

So, quick questions; every year for Eurovision we eat and drink food and beverages from the host country. What would you say was the quintessential German meal?

Hehe, my work here is done. :)

(Pot) roasted or braised pork, gravy, potato or bread dumplings and braised or pickled cabbage. Methods and recipes vary across regions but slab of pork with potato product is a safe bet. ;o)
