Baking Mad is a recipe database website with endless pages of scrumptious looking things to make, all alongside mouthwatering pictures to tempt you into a spot of baking. It really is the place to go if you are looking for something to bake and I do like the way you can search with just a few key ingredients in mind. There is also a “How to” section which is really handy for getting to grips with methods, hints and tips as well as video demonstrations.
With an array of baking goodies sent to me including flour, sugars and Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract, I wanted to make something that included most of them so searched with the words, “brown sugar, vanilla, flour” and I was faced with a delicious array of sweet treats wondering what to make.
I decided on the Brown Sugared Vanilla Shortbread, we all love shortbread and this one looked really tasty with the crunchy brown sugar and it’s deep golden colour. And it was so simple to make, all the ingredients put together in the food processor which does the hard work for you then bake in the oven.
I let all the family have a taste and the verdict was a resounding “delicious”. They all wanted more and now are eager for me to bake it again. It has a really soft crumbly yet crunchy texture that just melts in the mouth, perfect with a hot drink to dip it in.
I’m really pleased with the outcome of the Brown sugared vanilla shortbread and now want to try some other recipes from the site, with so many tempting options I’ll have to be careful but I’m sure my family will enjoy tasting them with me.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received some ingredients in order to write the review.
