Can you bake a brownie?


Ingredients                                                        Here are the brownies I made this week



  1. Heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line a 20x30cm/8x12in baking tin with baking paper.

  2. Gently melt the butter and the sugar together in a large pan. Once melted, take off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until melted.

  3. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the rest of the ingredients.

  4. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 30–40 minutes, or until the top of the brownie is firm but the inside still feels soft.

  5. Take out of the oven and cool in the tin. Cut into 5cm/2in squares when cool.

Yummy Fruit Kebabs


You might like to try making some fruit kebabs for a healthy snack. You can use any fruit for these, just use what you have. It can be fresh fruit or tinned, they are both just as healthy. If you don't have skewers, you could make mini kebabs using cocktail sticks. 


You will need;


  • any fruits
  • a board
  • a knife (parents help needed)
  • skewers or cocktail sticks





  • Peel fruit that needs it and remove any seeds or cores- adult help required!
  • Chop each fruit into bitesize chunks- again adult help required. 




  • Thread pieces of fruit onto the skewers. Why not try creating a repeating pattern with the pieces of fruit?     



  • Finally, enjoy!
