Brownies are small squares made with chocolate and usually served with ice cream. Brownies are of two types depending on their density, cakey or fudgy. This recipe is of a simple, flavourful and delicious cakey brownie. I have not added walnuts or chocolate chips as I like my brownies plain, but you can add them if you like.
