Preparing a premix is the perfect kitchen hack for the busy baker. It’s a fantastic way to cut your baking prep time in half and to reduce clean-up. What exactly is a Premix? It’s a bulk combination of the dry ingredients that a recipe calls for. When you’re ready to bake you simply measure out the required amount, add the wet ingredients and go. Premixes are perfect for simple recipes with high quantities of dry ingredients that you know you’ll love and make over and over again.

Blondies, also known as butterscotch brownies, are a delicious addition to parties, playdates and lunchboxes. These ones have been given a fresh and nutritious twist with the addition of wholemeal flour, quinoa flakes, grated carrot and raspberries.

    This was a hit with my two teens and youngest child (a very particular eater). It took me 20 mins to get everything out, make (using the pre-mix) and clean up, which I was pleased with. Is there meant to be a raising agent in it? Mine looked flat-ish compared with the pictures.
