The Housewife Apprentice: Goldilocks Classic Brownies Recipe


Goldilocks Bakeshop is a bakeshop chain based in the Philippines, which produces and distributes Philippine cakes and pastries. The name of the bakeshop was after a storybook character from Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It was used so that it will be easier for mothers and children to remember the store. (A perfect pitch for advertising)

In 2011, Goldilocks launched their first recipe book to commemorate their 45 years of existence. Luckily, I have a cousin that is into baking so she bought a copy of the book and got to try all the recipes at the comfort of our home. Today, I am going to share to you the steps by step in making their famous Classic Brownies.
