Made this baking kit for my grandaughter last Christmas (she was s 10!)

A super recipe, and a perfect fit for a 1l jar as a gift.

Recipe didn't state which white sugar, but I used caster, and they worked perfectly.

Brownies are very moreish! Only criticism would be they aren't gooey brownies.

This took quite a lot longer to bake than the recipe said, but I made it with gluten-free flour so don't know whether that made a difference. Next time I will use a slightly bigger tin so it's not so deep, as that will hopefully allow it to cook more evenly. Tastes lovely, but because I had to cook it for longer it's a bit crispy round the outside and not quite cooked in the middle.

It's both plain flours you layer them separately in the jar. If you're just baking the brownies for yourself just add the total of 170g flour.

This recipe shows Plain Flour twice. Which is it 95g or 75g?

Gorgeous! Left mine in the oven a bit longer for the 2nd time as the middle was slightly underdone the 1st time. Tried it as was giving the jars as gifts but it will be my default brownie recipe from now on!
