3 Ingredient Brownies

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

These simple 3 ingredient brownies have been my afternoon tea snack, and I'm finding it rather hard not to eat the entire batch!

Raw Brownies inspired by Deliciously Ella

20 medjool dates, pitted
1.5 cup pecans (or almonds)
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or 6 tablespoons regular cocoa powder)

Blitz pecans in food processor until crumbly, then add the dates and cocoa powder. Once blended, remove from processor and press mixture into a baking tray.

Place tray into the freezer for about an hour to set. Keep them stored in the fridge to stay fresh.

Makes 10-15 brownies

Butterfly Cake

These edible butterflies add a delicate dimension to a spring or summer cake. Made with sugar, they are fully edible as well.

I made a simple lemon cake with buttercream frosting and arranged them over the top of the cake. The butterflies are easily saved for another cake by carefully storing them in a cool, dry container.
