Fudgey Oreo Brownies!

The Best Oreo Brownie Recipe The Betty Stamp

Wowoweeewah!

I've hit the absolute brownie jackpot with these seriously naughty, chocolate-stuffed, fudgey Oreo brownies.

*WARNING* Own trumpet about to be blown...

I'm going to go there and say that these little monsters are by far the most scrumdiddlyumptious brownies I've ever tasted.

*Puts trumpet down*

I whipped up a batch for my flatmate's birthday as she's an avid Oreo fan, and loved them so much that I baked another tray-full for my sister-in-law, mainly so I could snaffle a few for myself!

They're seriously quick and easy to make - prepped and out of the oven within an hour. Although you might have to wait for them to cool before you sneak a nibble, as that centre is MOLTEN (as I found out by being impatient...)

SO, onto the good stuff...

What to do//

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (fan) and line a 20 x 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper. 

Melt your butter in a large saucepan on a LOW heat. Add the sugar and stir for 2 minutes. 

Add your golden syrup, chopped chocolate and vanilla and continuously stir until all the chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat.

In a separate bowl, whisk your eggs. 

Sift your flour into the chocolate mixture and add the eggs. Stir until all the flour has disappeared and the eggs are well combined into the mixture.

Pour the mixture into your lined baking tin, spreading evenly. 

Twist your Oreos into halves and place them in perfect little lines :)

Bake for 45 minutes. 

Leave to cool completely - as I said...that centre is MOLTEN!!!

Bread Ahead // Doughnut Workshop

The Bread Ahead Bakery Doughnut Workshop The Betty Stamp

Question: Any Londoners out there spent much time drooling over that doughnut stall at Borough Market? The one that sells those custard-stuffed doughnuts with pieces of honeycomb nestled into the top? The one that always has a queue about 20 people long?

Well turns out they do a doughnut workshop!

Uh huh! You heard correctly - DOUGHNUT WORKSHOP! And I'm afraid to say, if you haven't immediately typed 'doughnut workshop' into your search engine then I'm not sure we can be friends ;)

William really kindly bought his mum and I a gift voucher for one of the Bread Ahead workshops for Christmas and after having a browse through their extensive list, from Scandinavian to Best of British, we ended up picking their most popular course - DOUGHNUTS!

Having eyed up and drooled over these specific custard-stuffed doughnuts at Borough Market a million times before, it's safe to say, we both were very keen on this particular one.





That's my 'mmm, liquid sugar' face...

I'm not even ashamed to say, I was 'that' person who, as soon as the lovely lady asked for volunteers, my hand shot straight up. So here's me being an absolute keeno learning how to make HONEYCOMB for the topping for our doughnuts. 

Turns out, I didn't actually want to know just how much sugar goes into honeycomb... as it's now ruined my Crunchie-eating experience forever!

We had an absolute blast. It was just the right length of workshop; a half day from 10-1pm and we came away with sugar all around our lips, no appetite for lunch and a brain full of knowledge about doughnut dough :) Brilliant.

I'd highly recommend to anyone.

I have to say though, my favourite part was bashing the honeycomb to smithereens :)

My photos were a bit dodge so apologies for that, I only had my phone and to be honest, was too distracted licking my fingers and munching on honeycomb to get high quality shots! But I hope this gives you a good idea anyhow.

I ended up baking a mammoth Honeycomb Chocolate Cake with my goody bag of honeycomb from the workshop so check it out!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you're up to!
