We realised as we were still frantically packing our cases at 4am, running late for the airport, that September is not a terribly clever time of year to go on holiday. As soon as August is cleared away and schools are back then new contracts come in at work, a plethora of late summer veg and fruit needs to be preserved and Autumn festivals kick off. So goodness knows why Luke and I have decided four years on the trot to go away right when things are ramping up. We always return to utter pandemonium and far too much to catch up on.

Not only had I just started at the new Stroud Green Market then we whisked ourselves away to Mallorca for a blissful week. We have been going every year for several years now and it has just got better since having Cole as it turns out he’s also quite partial to days spent on the beach, eating tapas and exploring the local markets. His version of exploring is of course running amok down narrow cobbled streets and grabbing bright and shiny things off stalls.

However, going away mid-September did mean missing the second Stroud Green Market so reluctant to miss anymore I returned straight from the airport at midnight on the Friday to begin in the kitchen at 7am on the Saturday. The mad rush and baking day was worth it as so far the community have been proudly supportive of this fledgling market and it was a brilliant day.

I brought these Choc Chip Cookie Dough Brownies with me to the market. They are a real indulgence brownie, bound with memories of childhood baking when the real joy came from eating the raw cookie dough directly from the mixing bowl.

The brownie itself is my go-to brownie recipe, it’s made with a combination of teff flour and a ready-made gluten-free blend. As it’s a brownie whatever flour you go for can be very forgiving. I love teff flour for flavour and you can go all in on teff if you so fancy, with perhaps a few tablespoons of tapioca flour for binding. The brownies have a lot of melted chocolate involved so get very fudgey. To make it easier to cut I place my cooled brownies, still in their tin, into the fridge for a couple of hours. However, if you prefer a gooey squidgy brownie then give the fridge a miss.
