When your lovely mum in law rips a page from the Waitrose magazine, puts a Post It on it saying “saw this and thought of you”, well you have to try it don’t you?! I can see why the real Mummy Barrow ( I so think my mother in law should register that domain and become a blogger, her recipes and craft ideas are superb. And the Real Mummy Barrow does have a certain ring to it, doesn’t it?). Get on with — Ed
A pizookie is a cross between a pizza and a cookie and looks like a whole load of fun to make so I since Lady B had taken the time to send it to me I thought I would have a go. Which means turning my kitchen upside down to find the ingredients and then making a god awful mess in the kitchen whilst I looked for golden caster sugar in the disaster that is my baking cupboard (does anyone want to come and sort it out and hoover out the half bag of icing sugar all over one of the shelves? And label the jars so I know which is self raising and which is plain? No? Oh) Seriously, get the heck on with it — Ed
I am not kidding, look, this is one you won’t find on Instagram
Right, where was I? Oh yes.
So we have ascertained that I don’t have any golden caster sugar so I used ordinary and then followed the recipe:
- 125g butter
- 150g light brown sugar
- 100g golden caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 200g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 250g chocolate broken into chunks
- Preheat oven to 180 degres
- Put butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until light and fluffy
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time
- Add the vanilla
- In a separate bowl mix the other ingredients (except the chocolate) and add to butter mixture
- When combined add chocolate
- Put in a 20cm pizza tin or shallow cake tin
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes
You then serve it up whole, with a big dollop of ice cream in the middle.
Serves 10 apparently.
Thanks for thinking of me Pat, keep them coming
Now if you will excuse me, I need to go and clean the kitchen.
