Katharine Hepburn Brownies

These brownies have been doing their rounds in the blogosphere and I made these recently. They were a bit fudgy and had a crisp crust. I added a hint of coffee to it and absolutely loved the choco-coffee flavour it imparted. Abbas and I had one piece each of these after dinner for almost a week. Once they were gone, I badly missed my post dinner brownie indulgence. So made another bunch of brownies, which will make for a new post soon.

Recipe Source: Leites Culinaria
