Fudgy Brownies 🍫

Yum Yum Yum… the best brownie recipe I found was in an old book. Granted, this is the only brownie recipe I remember ever making so my opinion probably lost its credibility. Nah! You guys can trust my taste buds! 🀀

I didn’t have any dessert in the house and I really wanted to eat something sweet after having my dinner. It feels wonderful to drink a cup of tea paired with a cookie, chocolate, or cake after a heavy dinner. It sort of cleans my palate after a savory meal.

This is the second time I’m making this recipe and I have yet to perfect it. I’ll tell you why a little bit later. Here’s the recipe for now:

I’ve added a little citation at the bottom, so I won’t get sued for plagiarism. πŸ˜‰

Don’t forget to toast the walnuts!

Oh, and I didn’t have chocolate chips so I used this block of chocolate instead:

Cakey Brownies vs Fudgy Brownies

Now here’s my very long explanation on the difference between cakey brownies and fudgy brownies:

Cakey Brownies

More flour and less fats

VS

Fudgy Brownies

Less flour and more fats

Whew! Took me forever to type down all the words. Here’s more information about the difference.

You Done Baking Fudgy Brownies? πŸ€”

That’s a question I asked myself over and over again while the brownies were in the oven. The ‘stick the toothpick’ method won’t work this time: bits of the brownies will always stick to the toothpick because its fudgy.

So how can you tell when the brownies are done baking? The Epicurious blog suggests that the center shouldn’t be wiggly if you shake the pan. Click this link for the other suggestions.

Unfortunately, mine needed a bit more time in the oven. But I was a bit worried it might get burnt and I did follow the baking time (I think) so I didn’t put it back in.

Anyway, I solved this problem by putting it in the freezer!

Baking Life Lesson

Good things come to those who wait!Β In my case, good things still came even if I didn’t wait. πŸ˜„

There were times in my life when I thought I was ready. I could do what others did! But what I saw was different from what I encountered. There’s a path we must walk on in order to achieve a goal and sometimes it’s a slow, slow path. The important thing to remember is to be patient and push yourself to walk and maybe fudgy brownies will be waiting at the end.
