With my three hundredth post coming up there is not one brownie recipe to be found. Yes, in the past almost three years of blogging here I have never once posted a brownie recipe, it’s not that they’ve not been made in some of the many kitchens I’ve baked in. It’s just that brownies and I have never bonded enough to succeed.
Since my teens I have tried and failed endlessly to make brownies. I’ve tried vegan ones and super buttery ones. Ones that required cocoa powder and chocolate. There have been recipes with walnuts or hazelnuts or completely without. Ones that were fail proof to others. I’ve heard the words “an idiot can make brownies” and “brownies are one of the easiest things to make.”
