I first learnt how to make brownies from the BBC Good Food website (please click here if you are a beginner or new to baking ) https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/best-ever-chocolate-brownies-recipe However, you can adapt some of the ingredients.
Brownies are delicious with its gooey, chocolate centre. I add white chocolate chips as well as milk chocolate chips. Adding chocolate chunks is another great alternative. These options are great for those who are strapped for time.
The best things about brownies is that everyone in my family loves them especially with some ice cream.
