Friday = time for a: Swedish Brownie

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

•2 eggs
•1 1/3 cups sugar
•1/2 cup cake or all purpose flour
•1/8 tsp. salt
•1/2 cup melted butter
•4 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
•1 Tbsp. vanilla sugar
Preheat oven to 350º.
Lightly butter a round 8” or 9” springform or cake pan.
Whisk together the eggs and sugar. Gradually mix in the flour and salt.
Stir cocoa and vanilla sugar into melted butter until well-combined.
Add cocoa-butter mixture to batter, stirring well until any lumps are removed.
Pour batter into prepared pan.
Cook in 350º oven for 25 minutes.
Check for doneness; the edges of the cake should be crisp but the center still moist and sticky
(Tip: A good test is to insert a toothpick first into the cake’s edge:
it should come out clean.
Then, insert it into the center of the cake.
It should come out smeared with gooey, melting chocolate).
Do not overcook (but if you do, you’ll have stellar brownies as a compensation prize!).
Dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Hjälp oss hitta Sindy!

Need help finding Sindy

Detta är inte min hund, men jag vill ändå sätta in denna efterlysning:

Vår hund Sindy försvann torsdagen den 30/12-10 vid 17 tiden från våran hus i Olsfors. Hon sågs senast springa i Hultafors på bron då en volvo stannat till vid henne. Detta var runt 18 tiden samma kväll. En person som har kört en volvo har hört av sig och sagt att han försökte få in henne i bilen men att hon sprang iväg.. Frågan är bara om detta var samma bil/person som några andra personer såg stanna till vid henne?!

Antagligen har hon blivit skrämd av en smällare så att hon har sprungit iväg ifrån vårat hus.Vi har letat överallt, varit i kontakt med polisen, satt upp efterlysningar på internet och i affärer m.m.

Om Sindy:
Hon är en 4 årig renrasig Berner Sennen
Tatuering i örat (ID-märkt)
När hon försvann hade hon ett mörkbrunt läderhalsband med guldiga "nitar" på sig. Hon har ett litet överbett.

Om någon ser en hund som likar Sindy, en granne om helt plötsligt har fått en likadan hund, ser en annons på internet eller i en butik m.m.. Alla tips är viktiga!!

Vet du något, hör något eller har annan viktig information,
ring vilken tid som helst på dygnet!
