I usually kickstart the weekends with a recipe post but today I’m going to kill two birds with one stone and have a recipe/DIY post. Has anyone else lusted over the beautiful Yummy Recipe Desserts in a Jar that Jamie Oliver’s Recipease stores make? They are beautiful and fun. But they cost an exorbitant amount of money. Almost £10 for brownies in a jar that you still have to make? No thanks. But it is a good idea (I think) so make them yourself instead.
I put one of these jars in Yaya’s March Cara box. It was a slightly different recipe than the one I am using today. (Maybe slightly improved…. sorry Yaya….)
Quart sized mason har (or similar)
1 1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
2/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups of sugar
Mix your dry ingredients together and put into your jar. Decorate your jar. Add a label or a note that described how the person makes their brownies. This recipe for example reads:
To enjoy your brownies preheat your oven to 350 F. Then whisk 1 cup of melted butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 3 eggs together. Pour in and stir the contents of your jar. Spread the batter evenly into a pre-greased pan and bake for 22-25 minutes. Enjoy!
