Ultimate Chocolate Brownies

This recipe is from the book 500 Best Ever Cakes & Bakes by Martha Day.I fell in love with this book on first sight. This was the first cookery book purchased by me from the tuition which I used to take during my college days & thus very close to my heart. It covers cookies, bars, biscuit, pies, celebration cakes & all the basics of cake decorating. You name it  & it has.
This booked has helped me lot in honing my baking skills. All the recipes given there gives excellent result.

When I was getting married I gave away all the books I had to my sisters & cousins. But not  this book. Sorry dears I am not ready or ever will be to part with it.
 Sorry guys I am going gaga over this book.  I have an too much emotional attachment to it. 
I don't mind even being called crazy by my HB when he sees me reading recipes from the book from time to time ( which is often).
Now back to the recipe.
