|A Blessed Children's Day!|
The girl playing the Chinese flute is in my class., so are the children playing the piano and violin. This is their first public performance and they played really well. The class sang 'Jesus loves me'.
The balloon sculptures are done by another teacher and they are very popular with the younger kids. See the happy faces eating together? Some of them are in my class and they love Sunday school parties. They also get to exchange their tokens for gifts. Each child is given 2 tokens for every attendance.

Now, I want to share this brownie recipe with you. It is so simple and fast to make. Recipe is from Donna Hay and she calls this a standby brownie because in her household, even the cooking chocolate disappears. Hence why these rich brownies are made with cocoa.
|Donna Hay's Standby Brownies|
275g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
75g plain flour
Preheat oven to 160C(325F). Place the butter,sugar and cocoa in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the butter has melted.
Spoon into a bowl and add the vanilla and eggs, whisking well. Sift the flour over the mixture and whisk to combine. Spoon the mixture into a 20cm square cake tin lined with non-stick baking paper.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until centre is just set. Cool in tin and cut into squares to serve. Makes 16.
Note: I used valhorna cocoa powder and doubled the recipe. Baked in 10" x 10" pan for 40mins. I dusted with snow powder.
