I keep trying different Brownie recipes all the time. For the beginners , who need a little more expertise with cakes , can find comfort in brownies. Mostly , nothing much can go wrong with them. I liked the look of Divya Kudua brownies & I had to try it.
Besides it was a friend's birthday & I wanted to share some goodies with her. I replaced the butter with oil to reduce the guilt factor :)
Chocolate & coffee flavours marry well. I was tempted into adding some instant coffee for that deep flavor. I had acquired some Rum for the Christmas fruit cake. So a tbsp of that also had to be added.
The results are here to see. They were good, no doubt. But ice cream or chocolate sauce would have complimented & completed the SIN.
