There’s this girl named Megan. She bakes delicious cupcakes and slices and other sweet treats and delivers them to the sweet toothed folks of Perth via various cafes and markets. She has a friendly little community that can’t get enough of her baking. And due to this growing popularity, the demand for her baked goods is hot stuff right now.
I had the pleasure of meeting Megan and have been watching her closely since. She is one of those people who oozes adorable-ness, yet underneath that smile is sharp wit and humour that makes you like her even more. And then there are these.
Megan makes her own Belgian Chocolate Brownie Mix and an Old School Chocolate Cake Mix and shares them with the grateful folks of Perth. For the record, I can’t remember the last time I made a ‘packet mix’ cake pre Littlesweet Baking, in fact I don’t usually consider using them as I enjoy baking cakes from scratch myself. However when I was first aware of these mixes after tasting many of Megan’s cakes, I was keen to try them out. Less ‘packet mix’ and more ‘Megan’s cake ready for your oven’. Seriously, why wouldn’t you.
The beauty of this brownie mix (aside from the brownies it makes) is you only need three additional ingredients – eggs, butter and vanilla extract. I also added 1/4 cup macadamia nuts and did consider adding raspberries, so you can add your own touch. I have made the brownies before without adding anything and they are delicious as is. When I think of brownies I think of a dense, heavy crumb, but these brownies are surprisingly light. And rich, oh so deliciously rich! Megan didn’t muck around by adding Belgian chocolate.
The mixes also come with a sweet little instructional.
You can find Littlesweet Baking mixes at The Black Truffle in North Fremantle, Chalkys Espresso Bar in Fremantle, Urban Locavore in Myre Fremantle, Solomon’s Merchants in Albany and for home delivery from The Lettuce Shop or at their Saturday morning Weekend Warehouse. The mixes will also be available this week at Piccos Kitchen in Maylands. You can also pop down to Perth Upmarket and say hello to Megan, get your mitts on her gorgeous treats and thank me later. You can keep up-to-date with what’s going down with Littlesweet Baking via Megan’s Facebook page.
See what I mean, hot stuff!
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post however I did gently harass Megan for a sample of her mixes and then hunt her down at the Palmyra Western Farmers Market. And as you know, I just love sharing the good stuff. Opinions are, as always, my own. I mean, who else’s would they be.
