ANZAC Brownie Slice

Consider this a group text message.

Not one of the annoying ones that are the modern day equivalent of a chain letter but one of those that people send in a group SMS because they’re too lazy busy to send individual messages.

This is my group SMS to readers of Mummy Made.It

I’m sorry.

I was alerted today to an issue with the website. It appears that most of the comments, questions and overall glowing praise that people were leaving on my recipes were going into a spam folder that I didn’t even know existed. There were questions from 2017, entries from 2015 and, more recently, messages from Nigerian Prince who needs me to help him access his estate in Australia (ok…maybe that last one was actual spam!).

So here I was. Wallowing in my own self-pity, questioning if anyone actually read and cooked from my website and contemplating it’s future when all I needed to do was look in the trash!

I am truly sorry if I have ignored your comments or not answered your baking question. I do hope that you’ve stuck around despite Mummy Made.It being run by a tech Neanderthal.

To make it up to you I have a very tasty recipe to share with you and it’s just in time for ANZAC Day.

This ANZAC Brownie Slice is a gooey, delicious treat that really deserves to be more than just an annual event. It’s made from an ANZAC Biscuit Base with a gooey brownie baked right on top with a ANZAC crumble…and melted chocolate. There’s always room for more chocolate!!

The ANZAC Biscuit Base is partially baked first (otherwise you’ll have a soggy bottom!!) and the remainder of the ANZAC mixture is placed in the fridge. This helps it keep it’s form and prevent it from burning later on. The Brownie is made in a blender using my favourite #hiddenveggie ingredient; Sweet Potato. Blending the brownie hides any evidence that this ANZAC Brownie Slice might actually be better for you. The ANZAC crumble on top of the brownie is formed by clumping and randomly throwing it in the tin. Ideally, a nice even coverage is best!

This ANZAC Brownie Slice can be eaten warm (with cream or ice cream) or cold (to help the brownie set: place the cooked slice in the fridge for 1 hour before serving cold).

This ANZAC Brownie Slice is a chocolatey take on the ANZAC Biscuit. The gooey chocolate brownie middle is made with a secret hidden vegetable to give your ANZAC day treat a healthier taste.
