Welcome and my favourite brownies

Hey there! First off, I have to say, welcome to my blog. I love having you over. I am dedicated to bake through all the various types of sweet bakes there are, and giving constructive and true reviews to you.

sensual lovee :)

The perfect way to begin my blog is to go back to what made me want to bake for the first time in my life. About 10 years ago, my chocoholic genes kicked into gear, and I sat in front of my mom whining about how there was no chocolate in the house. Since my mom occasionally [read rarely] bakes, and wanted me to begin baking myself, she handed me her favourite chocolate cookbook,
Mable Hoffman's Chocolate Cookery, [a great book, by the way] and told me to choose a recipe. I chose the fudge brownies, and they came out great, mostly because it was my mom who was doing the baking, with me watching/learning, thus sowing the seeds of my true love :)

my super secret brownies

10 years and many burnt blobs, rock hard brownies used as paperweights later, I have finally achieved success in creating my own brownie recipe that is raved about. It's the perfect blend of chewy and fudgy, and is rich, but just so. Sorry, but this is the one and only recipe I won't be sharing , as if I ever win a lottery and open a bakery, this will be what I will rely on. A girl can dream, can't she? All I can tell you is that it involves a lot of chocolate.

I may be able to make these amazingly well [as you can see, I suck a modesty], I couldn't, for the love of anything that is holy, take good pictures of them. The pictures always made them look like dirty blobs, some even looking like *ahem* turd, I asked a friend to click them for me. He's got one of those professional camera thingies, and some MAD photography skills, as you can probably see. Thank you so much Zainul :-)

  4. I don't think they look like turds. They look soft and moist in the middle, with a nice crunchy top. In other words, they look SUPER yummy!
