I baked my own birthday cake which is not a cake but the best ever chocolate brownie

I’ve loved chocolate brownies for the longest time ever so it is not a surprise, really, when I baked one for my birthday and almost finished the whole lot myself. Hey, I did say almost…so I am not all that greedy. There were some left for The Food Critic and Mr Picky.


Anyway, I found the Best Ever Chocolate Brownie recipe over at Recipes2Share and since it is pretty simple, I thought I might as well bake it as a treat for myself. Heck, I did turn older and eating chocolate brownies is very, very comforting. So, I pigged out on this…

Now, don’t misunderstand me, I didn’t name it the best ever chocolate brownie, it is thus-named by the owner of the recipe, Fiona. But…I definitely do agree with her. This chewy, sticky, gooey, rich, dense, moist, sinful, one-bite-and-you-can’t-stop-eating chocolate brownies is simply the best ever!

Here’s the recipe with some Foong’s minor additional touches:
