Don't worry, you have arrived at the right blog! So, how are you liking the new layout? I've been using the same template since I started this blog and I think it's time to give the blog an update. I am still playing around with the design, so please bear with me...
I want to thank you to my talented friend Oflavia who created the blog header. And a big thank you to everyone for your support on my previous video, Indonesian beef rendang. It really gives us the encouragements and confidence to create more videos in the future. And guess what, here's another one!
I was looking through my recipe journal and I came across this white chocolate and coconut brownie recipe which I have not made in years. The last time I baked this I believe was second year at uni, so it's definitely going back a few years. I had some friends over for a fajita dinner, and I served these brownies at the end of our meal. They're so delicious, one of the guests gave me a kiss (oh you know who you are).
Whether if you're aiming for a kiss or not, you should give this a go. They're not too sweet which I love, but that's a personal preference. You can add the sugar quantity if you want to... I love with every bite you get little nuggets of white chocolate and the combination with the coconut is gorgeous.
Before you watch the video, I want to talk you through some of the behind the scenes photos... and all the fun we had in the process. Starting with the opening sequence as pictured below. This two second clip was the longest to shoot. We cut out a paper, and use this as a trace for the flour to create all the letters. The using a small pastry brush we sharpen the edges, tidy them up and make it all... pretty. I'm not very crafty and this was a true test of my patience... because not only we had to make this once, but twice... because the first shoot did not work (you'll see later in the video outtakes).
Here's the team hard at work :)
Next was the ingredients list photo shoot which involved me laying on the kitchen floor, under a chair.... We've all been there right? Well, you've got to do what you've got to do.
Am I starting a new trend here? baking on the floor? No?
And here's the finished picture. Please ignore my ridiculously veiny hand....
Without further a due, here's the new video! I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoy creating it for you. Please give it a thumbs up if you have YouTube account or subscribe for more videos in the future. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your Sunday... x
