When I was at Rushmore School last Sunday quite a few people felt 'bad' or guilty about buying a brownie or cake.
All I have to say is:
"IF YOU WANT IT GO FOR IT" and this doesn't always apply to food.
Hopefully you should feel better after this:
I only use wholemeal plain or self raising flour
The chocolate is ALWAYS organic and majority of the time Green and Blacks. Costs me a bit more than dairy milk but definitely worth it.
Brown sugar baby
Unsalted butter all the time
Good oils and a variety of them too
Yeo valley full creams
Fruit from Clapton Village
Organic semi skimmed milk
No salt ever added, there is enough natural salt in food already.
BIG jumbo raisins
Philadelphia cream cheese full fat
It sounds like I use wholesome, full fat, low salt ingredients.
When I want to make a sponge interesting I squash a few fruits. No harm, it will just taste a bit sweeter :)
I will keep on adding if something new enters the bowl....
