Faeriwood Kitchen: Two ingredient Brownies.



Ooey, gooey, fudgey, deliciously chocolatey Brownies.

There's nothing better right? 

Unless of course you can make them with only 2 ingredients and cater to your ever growing list of gluten/added sugar/dairy/carb free/etc associates. Apologies to those allergic to eggs and nuts, this ones not for you. With myself being Dairy Intolerant through IBS, and my Mum being Coeliac and Crohn's, this is a rare dessert that we can both enjoy!


4 Eggs and 1 Cup (pretty much a whole jar) of Nutella. 

That's all that's in these awesome treats. 

The recipe is simple:

Whisk the eggs until tripled and size and pale yellow in colour. This will take between 6-8 minutes depending on your electric/stand whisk. I wouldn't recommend using a hand whisk unless you have arms like Chris Hemsworth in Thor. In which case well done you.


After drooling over Hemsworth pictures you slowly add, to the eggs, the melted Nutella (Melt it slowly over the hob or in the microwave, whichever is your preference, while the eggs are whisking. I went for the hob but the easiest way I can think of is to literally just microwave the jar of Nutella for about 90 Seconds, stirring every 10-15 seconds to prevent burning.) and whisk in. If you're using a stand mixer you'll need stir the mix up a few times as the Nutella is much heavier than the eggs and will sink to the bottom. 

You'll know when its properly combined because it will magically turn into a normal looking brownie batter. Dark, shiny, and oh so inviting. 

At this stage you pour and scrape every last drop you can into your chosen tin (approximately 8 inches round, or squared, lined with baking paper) and bake at 170°C for approximately 30-35 minutes. 

NB: You might want to make sure your oven shelf is flat, unlike mine, or else your batter will cook at a wonky angle, like mine. Don't worry though it'll still taste awesome at whatever angle it bakes. 

Cool. Cut. Serve. 


And there you have it. 

2 ingredients. 3 steps. No fuss. The only problem with these is that your Nutella consumption will increase quite dramatically. 

If you call that a problem.

  1. Wow these sound amazing Bex! Sadly I'm out due to Nutella as son is allergic, though I guess the regular Cadburys choc spread would come in a close second!

    1. It would be worth trying with different spreads as its the egg that acts as the levener so the theory is there lol. I'm thinking of doing "Blondies" with the lotus biscuit spread, not GF anymore but could be a game changer in my list of favourites lol

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem, being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid! 

So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast, they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actually say that the…

5 Autumn/Winter must have shades from Sleek Lip VIP

For a while Sleek Cosmetics have been the ones to beat for quality products with great pigmentation at great prices. Other brands may hit one or two of these points but in my opinion Sleek consistently hits them all. 
In the past I've been a fan of their Pout Paint and their Matte Me lip laquers but oddly enough I've never dipped in to their actual lipsticks! More fool me. 
I received this set of Sleek Lip VIP semi matte lipsticks at the Sleek Blogger Brunch I attended a few weeks ago (here's where I plug my snapchat again) those of watching my @Faeribex snaps will have seen what a fab day it was.  

First impressions are positive. The colours are bang on trend for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons and there's a nice mix of girly, vampy, vintage and just plain gorgeous.  They apply feeling creamy and set to that semi matte finish slightly paler than when first applied.  For a full days wear I reapplied 3 or 4 times. Mealtimes will definitely do damage but I've yet to fi…
