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

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…

Alita: Battle Angel

For all the hype about it's animated lead character, and the clashing of titans that is Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel is the teen fantasy movie (potential) franchise you didn't know you were getting and I'm not sure you wanted. 
Alita starts with Christoph Waltz finding her discarded shell in the trash dump of a mysterious floating city that lords over the world on the ground. He then take her back and, with the help of his *mayaswellbemute* assistant, rebuilds her with a teen shaped mech body he just happens to have lying around and gives her the name of his dead daughter. None of this is supposed to be creepy at all. When Alita, Rosa Salazar, starts to realise that she is not just your typical abandoned teendroid but actually a super slick alien android with secret ninja fighting skills she does what any girl would do... she throws herself at, literally, the first boy she meets and takes up roller derby. Oh but she's also a sassy vigilante …
