The Great Brownie Bake Off

Last week I was asked to be a judge at The Great Brownie Bake Off on 9th October at Look Mum No Hands in London. More importantly, I was asked to offer part of the prize, the chance for the winning recipe to be used as part of my "Piece of Cake" range. This is something I am really looking forward to. A chance to taste lots of different brownies (who would argue with that!) and a chance to see the differences in what makes a pleasing brownie to an individual. Brownies are not something that I do at the moment, they are saved for baking with the children, but as I look through what types are out there I begin to realise the size of the task in hand. How will I choose between a sticky gooey cake and a crusty one, how will my own taste compare. When I Google "brownie" I can see how seriously people take this cake and how their interpretation of recipe is vital to the enjoyment. So now my task is to help find a winning recipe that you will all enjoy but is original. I'm hoping to find someone who has taken their passion and tweaked it to perfection.

Now I need your help... do you have the winning recipe? Are you a home baker/non professional cook? Do you fancy winning 6 months supply of chocolate from Divine Chocolate as well as your name being given the credit on  as soon as it goes live? On the day you will have the opportunity to sell your goods on the day with 10% going to the Wheels for Wellbeing Charity. There will also be a variety of excellent demonstrations going on from baking with Edd Kimber to chocolate tasting with The Chocolate Consultantancy ltd. Interested? I'll look forward to seeing you then!
