Eggless brownie with the perfect crisp, crackly top, fudgy centre and chewy gooey in all places. Ingredients comes measured and weighed to make your baking easy. Chocolate heaven i would say. You would never go to buy a brownie premix.
For this recipe, I have used white sugar to make it perfect. Sometimes I feel the palm sugars have a very strong smell that shouldn’t ruin the brownies. Sugar balances the bitterness in dark chocolate and adds the texture to the brownie.
This brownie recipe is fudgy on the next day too and even after that, they stay fudgy after freezing or having them cold out of the refrigerator. Longer you wait to slice, the more they set with kind of sink into itself.

Make a saucepan filled with 2 inch water set over low heat. Place a bowl with dark chocolate and butter over the saucepan. Watch as they melt into gritty looking mixture.
