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

Bex’s Mid Year Beauty Favourites 2018

This year I have been quietly chugging away in the back ground testing out some new - to me - products (or versions of) and I’ve decided it’s time to share. I guess I’ve been inspired by the multiple people this week who told me off for making them need to buy pretty things. So here are some pretty things for you that you may just want to buy even if you don’t need them! Ha!


I’ve been obsessing over Estèe Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye for months and I just can’t get enough of it’s balmy texture. Someone recently asked on InstastoryQuestions - mouthful - what my night time routine is and while most of the products change from night to night, this fella is consistent. 
A trio of delights here that took me by surprise. I recently declared that I had found my perfect mascara, but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying new ones. Wet’n’Wild Lash Renegade* really surprised me with its impact and, whilst the spool isn’t my all time favourite, I am really digging it.  Another Wet’n’Wild favou…

I think I’m turning Gluten Free

If you didn't sing the title of this blog to the tune of 80's classic "I think i'm turning Japanese" by The Vapours, then we can't be friends. I'm joking. Mostly.
Gluten Free is a pretty big buzz word these days and, having grown up with a Coeliac mum, and two aunts and various extended family members, from a young age, I’ve always been keenly aware of the impending possibility that some day I may get the dreaded news. Well that day has come.

As if I didn’t have enough issues trying to cope with IBD and various other issues already I now have to be one of those people who reads labels, double checks menus, and asks restaurant staff “exactly how is that prepared?” To try and avoid cross contamination.  One of the things I vowed during these early stages of my transition in to living a gluten free life, I am not going to be a complete nazi about things. Yes I’ll avoid binging on donuts and huge amounts of pasta and bread - I made that mistake once - but I gave…

Lush Belfast Gets a Glowup!

Stop everything you're doing right now. Lush Belfast have opened their new store in castle lane and it is everything and more and you need to go to it now. Ok maybe not now - it's quite late at night while I'm writing this - but you know what I mean. 




To give you an idea of size, the new giant sized shop is split in to 5 main sections - face, body, bath, scent, hair - each of which could have taken up the old shop on their own; gone are the days of claustrophobia whilst queuing for a sniff of the latest product, now you can take a seat and relax while you try them out. Speaking of products there are a tonne of new ones to choose from, with quite a few having previously been Oxford street exclusives. Now, I'm a die hard fan of the bubble bars and bath bombs but I think my new favourite section is the wall of bath oils. Designed to looks like tiny hand made chocolates, you may want to keep an eye on the kids if you're bring them with you, according to my source (ha!) …
