marbled brownies

I know, another brownie recipe. But trust me, this is a good one.

I actually made these a few weeks ago, but I’ve been completely preocupied with many things… Firstly sorting out our new flat, which we move into tomorrow (eep!). Then, job hunting. I’ve actually been looking for a new job since April. It’s been… a challenge. I’ve been doing this course which I finished this month, and graduated with a distinction last week. Yay! I was offered a job today, which is great. In the meantime I went on a well deserved holiday last week to Rhodes, Greece. It was great to have a relax (or more like try to relax while I sorted out flat/job stuff)!

Anyway. These went down a treat. I couldn’t stop eating them! The cream cheese on the top gives a nice contrast to the chocolate, while the crunch of the choc chips give a hint of texture. Perfect!

PS. I won’t be updating for a month or so, as we have to wait ages for our phone line to be set up in the new flat. So, while I wait I’ll do lots of baking so I can update lots when I get back. 🙂

red velvet white chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese buttercream frosting

Welcome to millys mini kitchen!

So, I’m a huge fan of red velvet cake… and cupcakes in general! So where better than to start with this amazing recipe. I’ve added my own touch with the white chocolate chips, and if you don’t like white chocolate of course substitute this for plain/dark chocolate of even fruit of some kind. It’s up to you.

Yum! These cupcakes so light and very very tasty (not too sweet at all) and i highly recommend you make red velvet cake at some point (if you haven’t already). What makes red velvet so good is that its not sickly sweet, as some cakes can be. The cocoa makes it so moreish, which is why they’re irresistible.
