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

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson





Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
