I've finally got myself settled down (well, sorta, LOL) and my hands itched so much... not from wanting to play mahjong... but to BAKE!
Actually wanted to bake 2 nites ago, but silly me can't remember the weighing scale and flour were packed in which box... so I was playing the guessing game for 2 nites, trying to locate all the necessary stuff for baking. :P
I was all set last nite and went about selecting a recipe to bake. Finally settled on brownies as it's simple and fast.
This recipe produces a fudgy brownie, very unlike the recipe I used often from the Hershey site, which results in the cake-like type of brownies. I always wonder how to get that "crackling" top I always see in some photos.... and when I chanced upon this recipe, I knew I just have to give it a go. I also read that usually, the sugar content in such brownies is quite high... only then that kind of crusty top can be achieved. But too much sugar is not good... since I often bake at nite and it means that I'll taste the food after it has cooled down and then pop to bed! LOL.... *shakes head*... In the end, I still decided to reduce the amount of sugar stated in the recipe by 1/2 a cup. The end results? It's still yummy! I tried so hard not to eat more than 1 slice but well......
