This fudgy chocolate brownie has all the power to lift up your mood and make you feel good about everything around the world!
This fudgy chocolate brownie recipe should have been shared with you guys earlier. Given the number of times I have made it, it should have been here long back. But for some reason or the other, we could not photograph it well and that’s the only reason for not sharing this immensely popular recipe of fudgy chocolate brownie. If you are in love with baking, then you must have your own fudgy chocolate brownie recipe. I have arrived at this fail-proof recipe of mine which I have adapted from various sources on net and finally this epic version of fudgy chocolate brownie evolved.
This fudgy chocolate brownie is very dense with a deep chocolate flavor and a crumbly texture at the top. Even my husband, who is more fond of vanilla sponge cake, could not resist the super-chocolaty sensation of this particular fudgy chocolate brownie. So, I can bluntly declare that this brownie will please everyone – chocolate-lover or not! Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or a dollop of whipped cream and you will win over everyone’s heart! This fudgy chocolate brownie is also a great dessert to serve your guests at your next house party and it comes together in a jiffy without any fuss whatsoever! Win-win, right?
The long weekend is coming to an end and I am definitely not loving it. This extra day-off allows me to spend stress-free time with my family; otherwise the regular weekends are so full of the household chores that we hardly get to enjoy some quiet time. But sometimes I feel that I also enjoy being a workaholic (just like my father!); be it my official work or my blog. I have never felt too tired to give up on things which keeps me busy. May be this is the key thing that I have inherited from my father who loved being a workaholic and is still one till date!
I just have a very tiny percentage of his tenacity & determination and I sincerely hope that someday I would be as hard-working as him because I strongly believe there is no short-cut to success other than hard work as well as honesty towards your ambition. With that note, while I am treating myself with this absolutely delicious fudgy chocolate brownie, you should also start rewarding yourself for all your hard work and accomplishments, irrespective of their magnitude as perceived by others! You really don’t need external validation for your achievements just like this fudgy chocolate brownie doesn’t need one; it is content in its own chocolaty depth!
