The Quest for the Perfect Brownie

I like brownies.  I think a lot of people do.  I have tried a few brownie recipes in the last few years but I have always been a little disappointed.  The results have always been the quite chewy and sweet... oh so sweet!  I think the recipes I have been trying is the American style brownie whereas what I am searching for is the kind that is more cake-like which were the ones my Aunt used to make when I was a kid.  Filled with walnuts and so satisfying!  Perhaps those are English brownies??

Anyway, I got it in my head today that I wanted to make brownies.  So it's 11.22pm and the brownies are in the oven.  I have raided my Hummingbird Bakery cookbook to test yet another recipe with the hopes for a dense but cakey brownie.  I also need to bring something to an Easter Picnic this weekend and I thought brownies might be nice.  I never bake something for someone without trying the recipe first so I had to get a move on.  Last year was cupcakes and I didn't want to be... predictable. ^_*

Another good friend of mine, B had gone on in the past about this delicious brownie that a neighbour of hers made which had white chocolate in it but that neighbour was quite good at evading the request for the recipe.  So I'm thinking, I'll do this for B.  I will bake AND eat some brownies until I can find a good recipe to give her.  Then she can recreate this genius in the bakegoods group and make her kids go crazy with a sugar rush!
