Maybe it’s not one of the most holiday-like recipes but I have really had a craving for coffee recently. Any version of it :)
Still, I think that next posts will be more suitable for summer time :)
About the cake – Coffee Brownies – flawless.
I know I’ve been using this description quite often but… well, what can I do when it’s so good? :) To my taste, of course :)
This brownies is wetty chocolatey and quite alcoholic… While it’s being baked, the smell of the cake surrounds the whole flat… Amazing.
And just a short explanation for my recent absence… Well, to cut the story short, it’s all about a new passion :) It turns out we learn throughout our whole lives and we can really surprise ourselves, positively so :)
As for now, I’ve been trying to find time for everything :)
