Bake It Like Beckham!
Posted On Jun 19, 2016
Note to mothers who bake everywhere: Victoria Beckham is one of you! The former Spice Girl surprised many of her fans when she showed off her skills in the kitchen on Instagram, posting a picture of a plate of “Beckham Brownies” that she whipped up for one of her children’s school event.
Victoria captioned a photo of the delicious-looking treats, saying, “Summer school fete!! Who knew?!?! #mummyduties #triedmybest X VB.” As a famous singer, model, designer, and businesswoman, it’s hard to imagine Victoria spending her free time mixing up brownie batter in the kitchen. However, the mother of four has opened up in the past about her culinary hobby, telling People in 2014 that her “favorite thing to bake is brownies.”
It’s comforting to know that Victoria, who is known for her slender physique, indulges in junk food at times, just like the rest of us. If you too want to “bake it like Beckham”, you should give Victoria’s favorite brownie recipe a try!
