Though I had everything ready, natural calamities have a way of disturbing one so much that regular things cease to hold your attention. So with Madras Rains lashing out so much, I completely forgot that I need to start the Bake-a-thon. Lucky my friends did the honours and I am so glad to catch up with their bakes.
As always, I decided to do a theme for this bakeathon too. It had been changing from muffins to cakes to savories. Finally settling down to Brownies. So this whole of December I will try to dish out brownies. I was supposed to be completely prepared and ready. Unfortunately I just have this ready and I also realized baking so many brownies at one go is so hard on the consumer end.
Of course, with kids being at home for nearly a month, I was rushed to think of various snacks that I had to feed them. They are eternally hungry and just won't want anything. So I knew these brownies would have helped the situation. However as I said I wasn't prepared. Still the two brownies that I made have been super duper hit and that has surely encouraged me to go forward with this theme.
This was the second recipe I baked. The first one was very rich and high calorie. So thinking so much over it, I decided I should experiment with a measurement that could yield me low cal and yet delicious. Kids will anyway have a drizzle of their favorite chocolate sauce over anything and everything.
Hubby dear especially loved this, saying this tastes just like the bakery one. So this is surely gets repeated again.
I was in a rush and baked it in the morning. I asked Konda to click the main pictures with ideas on how I want it to be captured. I was glad she was able to do a great job with it.
