This last week has been lovely.
The weekend was spent in good company at my last ever Rover camp as a youth member. We got to relax at The Pallet and even went on an adventure to IKEA. Overall it was a wonderfully relaxing weekend though I feel I probably should have got more done around the house.
In our household adventures. We participated in our second week of trivia and did a little better. Unfortunately we came last. We also went out and saw a local performance of Rent. That’s one of the benefits of the new house. We are close to a lot of cool stuff.
Thursday was my last night at Rovers. I ran a Firefly night where we watched the episode “Out Of Gas”. I quizzed the crew on their Firefly knowledge and I made bao for us to eat. We finished the night by capturing the whole crew in a selfie. It was sad to be saying goodbye to that routine but the friends I’ve made will stick around.
When thinking about it all it’s made me a bit sad to be leaving Rovers. It has been a big part of my life for 8 years and I have grown as a person through my experiences. I’ve also made a lot of good friends and I am grateful for that chance.
So to counteract the touch of sadness that accompanied my week, I needed a pick me up.
I needed to bake. I needed brownies.
So today’s recipe is another variation on my Brownie recipe. It’s quite similar the first recipe I put up. I really like the flavour of Matcha and I find the White chocolate goes wonderfully with it.
Matcha white Chocolate “Brownies”
200g White Chocolate
1 cup White Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup Plain Flour
2 Tbs Matcha
75g White Choc Chips
In the top of a double boiler melt the butter and white chocolate.
Once melted take off the heat and mix in the sugar.
Once slightly cooled mix in the eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl mix together 2 tbs of flour and the choc chips.
Add the Flour and Matcha to the wet mixture and Stir to combine.
Stir through the white choc chips to evenly disperse them.
Pour Mixture into a lined square tin.
Bake for 30-45 mins or until just cooked through.
Serve warm with ice cream or allow to cool and enjoy.
