One sure way to party is with Brownies.

In fact this lot was to be the present for one of my friends Neelaprabha alias Niloo and unfortunately it never reached her.

Be warned these brownies are extremely additive. Even when I bake a double batch they disappear instantaneously.

The only option now is to tell Niloo is come over then I back a double batch so at least one batch reaches her home hopefully!


I have baked these both with and without eggs the substitute for 2 eggs was 1 cup of buttermilk.

    Brownies look yumm. I know it’s quite difficult not to taste the whole batch to make sure they turned out perfect 🙂

    Brownies look so moist and decadent! No wonder these get over fast 🙂
