Well hello there! I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, but I have been so busy lately, that I barely have time to sleep. Barely had time to sleep means that I'm getting maybe 2-3 hours a night. This can't be good.
I'm usually really good at hiding how little I've slept. That is, until a couple of days ago. I'm in first class of the morning, waiting for it to start when my friend arrives and says "wow, you look like a mess." Even though I was happy for his honesty, that is hardly something a girl wants to hear first think in the morning.
It feels like I'm drowning in work, but I can almost see the end. As soon as I have my final midterm of the term and finish my huge project (which I asked for an extension on, but I'm not even sure if I can finish it by the new date either) I will feel a huge weight lifted from my chest. Then I can start looking after myself. Maybe I'll get some sleep.
But I was having a mini panic attack the other day when I realized I haven't baked in a couple of days. Whenever anyone hears about my problem, they are always thinking I mean that I haven't GOTTEN baked in that long. But no, my addiction is not pot, it is making cookies, cakes, pies and, yes, you guessed it..
The best part is the main ingredient is Nutella. It's almost like I'm eating Nutella out of the jar, but my hands don't get dirty in the process. Total win-win.
What you'll need:
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/3 cup nutella
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the salt and flour.
- In a separate bowl, beat together the Nutella, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs until smooth.
- Alternate between adding the flour and the butter into the Nutella mixture, and blend until fully combined.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan, and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out with only a couple of crumbs.
- Remove from oven, and let cool for about an hour.
