Lately I’ve been trying to include my toddler in my cooking and baking adventures. I try and do this about once a week and since he doesn’t go to full school yet, he’s rather free in the early evenings after his nap.
So I’m regularly on the hunt for simple and easy recipes that the little one can manage without much assistance. I help with measuring the ingredients, occasionally pouring the ingredients into the big bowl and putting the batter or mixture into the oven. And like all mothers, I give lots of instructions and reminders during the process.
Anyway, this recipe is not mine so credit goes to Kirbie Cravings and here’s the link http://kirbiecravings.com/2013/02/easiest-3-ingredient-nutella-brownies.html
Essentially, this is all it requires.
- Half a cup of plain flour
- One and a quarter cup of Nutella (which works out to the 350g jar)
- 2 eggs
Preheat the oven at 180°C, mix all the ingredients together and bake for 15 minutes. The toothpick should come out dry when it’s cooked. These brownies don’t come out really thick plus I cut them into bite sized pieces so they were really easy for little hands to handle.
The best part is that it took less than half an hour from start to end. Of course with a toddler, it may take a little longer but it’s long enough to sustain his interest.
They were so delicious I must admit I popped way too many pieces in my mouth. Will I be making these again, you bet!
