Whole-Wheat Brownies- Spreading X’Mas Joy
Delicious Whole-Wheat Brownie is something that is irresistible.
With Christmas fast approaching and how can we miss spreading the joy.
There is nothing in the world that can beat the sound and smell of an approaching pan with a hot brownie topped with ice cream and sizzling chocolate.
This chocolatey delight was born in the famous urban legend of Bertha Palmer, a socialite from Chicago. She requested the pastry chef of her husband’s famous Palmer House Hotel to create a new dessert for women attending an Exposition. The result was the very first Palmer House Brownie with walnuts and apricot glaze.
To those who are still wondering: A brownie is a flat, brown, dessert square that is halfway between a cake and a soft cookie in texture. However, it may vary in texture. It can be made anywhere between cake-like to a gooey chocolate fudge-like consistency. It often has additions like chocolate chips, nuts, marshmallows and so on. A variation made with brown sugar and chocolate bits but without melted chocolate in the batter is called a blonde brownie or blondie.
This delicious brownie is my friend Vidya’s recipe and it is chocolatey yum that you must try. Thanks, Vidya I have to make it again as they just disappeared without the ice cream.
