Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Fernanda Faria, founder of Baked by Fernanda, began her love affair with baking at the age of 11. Here at The Amazing Blog we love supporting people’s dreams, so we didn't hesitate to spoil ourselves with some of Baked by Fernanda’s delicious brownies.

“For me, the simple brownie becomes something extra special when it teases the senses, challenges convention and takes you to paradise with the very first bite," says Fernanda.

She does exactly this by playing with different combinations of fruits and spices to create delicate and evocative flavours in her Belgian Chocolate brownies. These luxurious-looking brownies are rich in taste and will leaving you craving more.

Besides the classic Belgian chocolate brownie, you can try Hazelnut, Salted Cardamom Streusel & Kahlua, Peanut Butter & Nutella, Coffee & Lime, Passion FruitCherry & Almonds and more! Plus, there's even gluten free brownies for those of you with special dietary needs. My personal favourite was the Peanut Butter & Nutella brownie, but I’d eat them all again if I could!
