Home baking...

We've been invited to friends' tomorrow for lunch, so I decided that I'd make and take a cake... Actually, I decided that I'd use it as an opportunity to try making a batch of Marie Tuttle's caramel sea salt brownies.

I've been obsessing about them since seeing her New York bakery website. I followed Mari's recipe but found the brownies a little too sweet.

Yesterday I had a trial run using Nigel Slater's 'very good chocolate brownie recipe', and despite using a little too much of the caramel I could tell that this was much more to my liking.

And... if brownies aren't enough, I had another go at making the Rose Bakery ginger cake.
