The Best Brownie Recipe – How to Make Yummy Brownies!

by - December 21, 2018

It had been quite some time since I'd baked and my mom was after me to bake something (wheat cookies especially). I was just going through the internet and came across brownies. That's when I had the sudden urge of eating them and I'd even planned a dessert date with my friend but then thought I should bake them at home instead. My cousin was home then to play with my new puppy (wait, what?!) and he casually told me his friend is pursuing a course in hotel management and that she makes heavenly brownies. I immediately asked him to take the recipe from her and viola, just within 5 minutes, I had the secret with me! 

My mom bought the ingredients and I thought I should give them a try. I was not too sure of the success (especially because the chocochip cookies I'd made the last time were a flop) so I did not take images while making. However, the brownies turned out to be the yummiest brownies I've ever tasted! 

I say, definitely, definitely try this recipe and let me know in the comments below if you made it.

Heartfelt thanks to Juilee for sharing the recipe with me, my cousin Pratik for asking her, my mom for getting the ingredients, and my puppy Kurama for standing (ahem, sitting) by me throughout the process. Enjoy the brownies!
