Theme : Baking
Theme of the week: Muffins and Brownies
Since a very long time I have been wanting to make Dulce de leche. I remember Rajani making it and then my daughter, I was constantly being reminded but somehow never got down to making . The Baking marathon was my chance to work on it and I made sure that I make something interesting with it. The recipe for Dulce de leche shall follow soon, for now I have a Brownie with it.
Again I wanted to add another flavor to my chocolate brownies, and what else could I add but for orange. I added the orange cream biscuits and truly the aroma of these brownies filled the house. The only blunder I made was preheated the oven at full which made the Dulce de leche dark on top. The minute I realized I immediately tented it with a foil, so that I could save them from that ugly burnt black.
I was lucky they were saved and I have to admit these are one of the best brownies I have had till date. My daughter loved them and I was glad to pack half of these for her.
I wonder how I am going to do my bakes in future...my daughter is shifting to Chennai and she and the kids have always appreciated and enjoyed these bakes. So many times I bake solely for her. I will really miss her , but I guess that's life.
