Sponsored: World Baking Day recipe!


So it’s finally here and our bake was a success! Or so all the people who ate it told us! On May 17th we at Average Janes teamed up with Stork to Bake Ourselves Happy on World Baking Day!

Check out our baking pledge here!

We loved how our brownies turned out and they were super simple to make! So if you’re looking for a quick and easy sweet treat then this is the recipe for you!

Our quick tip is… make sure you leave them to cool when taking them out of the oven before cutting them into squares or they’ll fall apart a bit and you’ll have to eat all those bits yourself! *from experience!*

So remember, take some time for yourself, dedicate your bake to someone special and bake yourself happy!


This was be our recipe…
