Stack of chewy brownies
It was a last minute desicion to attend a dinner potluck at a friend’s place and I had to come up with something fast and good. Since there was plenty of food planned, brownies seemed like a good idea. However, the fact that brownies had never been a part of my prior culinary experiments, was making it seem like a bad idea.
Like any other student of Google university, I typed out, brownies with oil, and lo…there were several such recipes, made for lazy last minute bakers like me. I tried one such recipe, try as I might I cannot seem to find the correct source. As soon as I do, it will be appended into the post.
I chose a recipe for a 9×9 pan, so that if a disaster was encountered it wouldn’t have become a huge waste.
The results of the first batch were highly encouraging and I quickly put in a second batch. DH and me tasted one and oohed and aaahed over it. The friend who came to pick me up insisted that he have one first before we landed up at the potluck house and he gave me his double thumbs up too! People at the potluck finished it off, including the crumbs. So, when you need to impress people without spending too much time, this is JUST the recipe for you.
