Scrumptious Brownies

Hey Guys,

Here is the recipe for the White Chocolate Brownies that I baked in my vlog, “My face is numb!” Before I baked these brownies, I thought they would be too sweet, but all the ingredients balance really well. Enjoy them x

Recipe taken from: “How to be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking” by Nigella Lawson.


White-Chocolate & Macadamia Brownies


  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 250g white chocolate, cut into chunks, or buttons
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1tsp salt
  • 350g caster sugar
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour
  • 250g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped (I didn’t have macadamia nuts, so I used almonds!)
  • 25x20x5cm brownie tin, buttered



  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate either in the microwave or a double boiler. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the salt until they start to whoosh up in volume. Add the sugar and the vanilla. Continue beating until really thick and creamy.
  3. Let the chocolate mixture cool slightly, then beat into the egg and sugar mixture. Gently fold in the flour and nuts.
  4. Pour into your prepared tin and bake for 35 minutes or until set on top and gooey in the middle. Leave in tin for 5 minutes before cutting into squares.


With love,
