Anele has chosen to share her home-cooked favourite - a perfect recipe to try over the festive season. “This is a very quick and easy recipe which I enjoy baking,” she says. “Whenever friends or my two nieces visit, I make Belgian chocolate brownies. Most people enjoy chocolate, and these are best served with creme fraiche and a good cup of hot chocolate.” Anele has a seriously decadent sweet tooth.
