This is a good year, gentle reader! I know its only April, but I have had flowers on my desk. Twice. Yes, the year is off to a good start. The gods have been kind. Additional evidence for divine munificence comes from Nick Malgieri and David Jochim's Perfect Light Desserts: Fabulous Cakes, Cookies, Pies, and More Made with Real Butter, Sugar, Flour, and Eggs, All Under 300 Calories Per Generous Serving
I pored over the book, brows furrowed in concentration as I weighing the merits and possible demerits of many equally enticing choices. Many lusty sighs later, I had decided: fudgy brownies. At a 137 kcal, this delectable dessert is my favorite "combination of chocolate and virtue" (plagiarized from the book!) The recipe is frugal with butter and generous with sugar and cocoa. The result is an appropriately chewy brownie with deep mellow sweetness.
This is a brownie thats been on vacation to some exotic spa. Its come back, glowing and buff. All of its goodness and beauty intact, all its sins washed away. This is a good brownie. This is a brownie you'd like to bring home to your parents. In a nutshell, gentle reader, this is a brownie that will charm your socks off. Enjoy!
Myriam, it made my day to read about Brownie Babe of the Month. "A brownie a day" - now theres a wonderful concept!
