March challenge: Extra-nutty dark chocolate fudge brownies (Eggless)

This month's challenge for our Baking eggless group was extra nutty and fudgy chocolate brownies by Joy the Baker. The challenge provided an apt opportunity for me to add a fascinating brownie recipe to my repertoire. The original brownie looked seriously delish, and the real challenge for me was to retain its look and texture, while converting it into its eggless avator. For me, anything fudgy is equal to "condensed milk"....oh yes!! what can be fudgier than it?? So I thought of using it instead of eggs. For any brownie recipe to be a success, the taste of chocolate should scream over any other ingredient used. Hence I used chocolate in two forms....chocolate bar and cocoa. Since I enjoy eating Bournville range, I used that. And for the cocoa I rely on good ol' Cadbury!!

Thank God! there is Pound Cake....

Life can be times, exceptionally tough! But has to be lived. Coz only then will you realise its beauty. And only when you pass through storms, you get to see the rainbow. Past one year had been quite hard for me. But on 31st dec'14, I still hoped for a better year ahead. Why?? Bcoz life goes on....and life goes on in "hope".
Caroline Myss had said "The soul knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind." But then, how can you heal yourself when the soul screams 'pound cake'....but the mind says "shut up....there's no time". Of course there is always time... for a rich, moist and luscious pound cake!
