Chocolate brownies are goodies with a wonderfully moist texture and a rich chocolate taste. They are a cross between fudge and cake. Brownies are heavily dependent on the taste of chocolate, so pick out the best you can get. The greatest problem lies in the baking time. It’s funny but something like 2 minutes over the time will turn a moist flavorful cake into a dry and almost tasteless chunk. Prod it with a toothpick to see whether it is done properly – a brownie is all right if there are a few moist lumps sticking to the toothpick. Brownies, the Americans’ favored dessert, are often served with ice cream, whipped cream and berries.
