Low Fat Fudgy Chocolate Brownies - Tried, Tested and True Two



When I won a writing competition (MP Friendship Writing Event) in multiply held by Ezra's mother, she gave me a recipe book. Actually the price was a voucher from a famous book store in Indonesia. As I told her that I will use the voucher to buy a recipe I found in that book store website, she told me that she will buy it for me, so that I still can use the voucher to buy something else. Yay!!!!

Then when my family came, they brought the books. She sent two copies of it, since I told her that I will give the other one for my best friend Nana. Yup! It was her I was talking about in my writing, so she deserves the price as well.

Why I want this recipe book so badly? Because it is about renovation in recipe, turning yummy dishes into yummy and healthy foods. Interesting right!

Today I started to use the book for spoiling my mom. She wanted to have something sweet for dessert. When I told her to choose from the book, she chose this brownies.


I have a confession to make. I misinterpreted the recipe by using powder sugar instead of superfine granulated sugar. That's why, I add water when melting the sugar. Thanks God the result was good. Mom likes it very much!
