Brownie Recipe-Brownies-How to make Brownies

Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year. Let me start this year with a delicious Brownie recipe. If you love chocolate, then you will definitely love brownies .The brownie is a type of dense, rich chocolate cake, which is, in texture, like a cross between a cake and a cookie.It is neither spongy like a cake nor crispy like a cookie.Brownies can be served warm topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. This is the first time I am baking a brownie and it turned out so perfect and delicious.My family loved it very much .With walnuts and chocolates, it was simply divine.Follow this recipe exactly and you will never go wrong.
