I knew the Little One was feeling better when she asked to make cakes on Friday when she was off school. This was a huge relief as she’s been feeling ill for a week and not eating, which is most unlike her.
Her choice for baking? Chocolate brownies with prunes in them (she loves prunes!) We used a Nigella Lawson brownie recipe and we substituted half the butter with pureed prunes which makes it slightly healthier but obviously not quite as yummy.
This didn’t stop the Little One from licking the bowl though:
It was the most food she’d eaten in several days, even if it was uncooked brownie batter! And the cooked brownies were pretty good too.
