Brownies can be AMAZING. But, they can also be a disaster – I’m thinking particularly of the pre-packaged ones which are little more than dried out cake.
I’m definitely a believer in fudgy brownies rather than cakey, and am always on the lookout for the ever elusive ‘perfect brownie’.
While blog browsing I’ve bookmarked lots of brownie recipes, but when it came to making some last week, it was Apple and Spice’s recpie which was chosen.
I agreed with Katie’s description of a good brownie, and decided to make them to take to the friendly pony’s work leaving party.
They were maybe a tiny, tiny bit undercooked, but that’s a million times better than overcooked when it comes to brownies, and they went down REALLY well at the barbecue. They’re definitely the best brownie I’ve made so far, although there are so many others I want to try it might be a while before I come back to these again…
