My husband was working in Mumbai for a good year and a half. I heard a lot of stories from him about American walnut brownie that he used to order from brownie point. Almost every time he would eat a dessert, he would not forget to bring his American walnut brownie in between. I finally decided to treat him with a similar homemade walnut brownies.
We just finished Diwali festival. Remember, in my last post, I told you that this Diwali we are going to avoid sweets. I made gift hampers of homemade Karachi Fruit Biscuits and Eggless Choco Chip Cookies. The cookies and everything were over, but the festive season still continued with guests hopping in every now and then. I was to anyways bake something so decided to solve two problems with a single bake and decided to make my husband so very favourite American walnut brownie.
So started my research project. I wanted to be absolutely sure about the American chocolate fudge brownie recipe before making an attempt.
American Walnut Brownie: A chocolate fudge brownie recipe
While reading about brownies, I found some interesting facts. Just like many other recipes, the fact that who invented the brownie recipe is not clear. Some say that some chef accidentally made the brownie recipe, whereas he intended to make cookies. And some talk about a housewife in Maine.
However most of the evidences points towards Palmer house hotel in Chicago. Hence we call this gooey brownie recipe to be American.
An American Walnut Brownie is a pure delight to eat any time of a day. This rich and homemade fudge brownie recipe is an irresistible square baked dessert.
Best Chocolate Brownie Recipe
I read many fudgy chocolate brownie recipe and tried hands on a couple of them. As usual, I made few changes in the way the original recipes were. The intent was simple, to make a quick and simple brownie recipe.
Once I made my variation on paper, it was time to gets hands dirty. I gathered all the ingredients and baked my version of American Walnut Brownie. The first shot itself gave one of the most aromatic walnut brownies that barely survived for 10 minutes.
This time it was my husband’s choice of brownie. Next will be for my ladoo. I will be making him Nutella whole wheat brownies.
