the best brownies!

It was never my intention to spend too much time making the ubiquitous chocolate brownie but it seems the world has spoken. This was hands-down the biggest seller on the market stall with people from all over the globe reaching out for the gooey rich chocolate slabs. In many different languages with different pronunciations the word “brownie” still means the same thing and when it gets to 3 o’clock in the afternoon it’s the only thing that really lifts the spirits.

I don’t consider myself to be the bragging type but I heard it so many times that it must be partly true: this is the best brownie ever! I have always prefered a brownie with nuts in but on the market I always kept the nuts out as I wanted to reach to as many people as possible. I think this one works best with walnuts as the brownie is so rich and chocolatey and the walnuts are ever so slightly bitter.

Martin’s ultimate favourite thing in the world, I think, is marmalade. He’s now rather partial to a brownie from time to time, being a bit of a recent convert, and it follows that his very favourite brownie is the marmalade brownie! Though I do try and disuade him from eating it for breakfast with his morning coffee…

Prices: £1.80 per brownie for up to 10; 1.60 per brownie for 10 or more; or £28 for a tray of 20.

spelt carrot cake

The carrot cake that we make here at cherry pippin is an adaptation from the recipe used by john Malcovich’s grandmother. Don’t ask me how I know, I just do! As with most recipes that come into my possession I have adapted it slightly as I really like things to be my own. The most recent adaptation being using organic spelt flour instead of standard wheat flour. This has all the moistness and spice you’d expect from a carrot cake and as  it’s really easy eating without being too rich I always give generous portions. The only topping, I think, you should ever have on a carrot cake is of the cream cheese variety, and lots of it too!

Price:£22 for a 10″ cake that will easily give 12 portions.

lemon marmalade cake

This is made with our own lemon marmalade and Doves Farm organic flour and the filling is a zesty cream cheese icing.  It made its first appearance at Camden Lock market at the end of the summer and is great washed down with a cup of Earl Grey tea.

Priced at £8 per loaf, giving around 8 portions.
