My Christmas Bakes 2010

These were my Christmas bakes for the year 2010! Nothing unusual like fruits cake & chocolate chips cookies been baking it for the past years for family, friends and colleagues. However I did try out some new recipes like the brownie from Just Desserts by Daniel Tay and a very easy Nutella cake from Hearty Bakes.


A very rich, chocolaty and moist brownie. The recipe made a huge brownie, advisable to half it if anyone of you are interested to try.

Recipe adapted from "Just Dessert" by Daniel Tay

10g Salt
450g Unsalted butter (softened)
