Think of Something sweet, something bitter, something chocolatey… think of Brownie. I dont know why i was in the mood of Brownie today, it has run around and around in my head since i woke up…But you know, i have to fight myself alot, as i just had a salmon en Croute yesterday which is quite rich and heavy,so heavy meet fatty, i may have a fighting with my weight next.
But finally,The Brownie mood has win, i made these little bad boy today. however, not at all. Because i chose the low fat version which use a little amout of oil, the smallest sugar amout which just made they are enough sweet and statisfy my sweet tooth. they are not too fudgy, not too cakey, I would describe this brownie as a cross between the two. Top the brownie with the leftover creamcheese I had for the salmon yesterday. This combination is very lovely and beautiful, the sweetness of brownie works with the sour and rich of cheese, just wonderful.

Important Plus tip
If you are going to make the brownie only and want to get the very thin shiny wrinkly tissue-paper top, the secret is beating the egg with sugar. Use a stand/hand mixer or just a whisk. whisk until the egg mixture is pale,sugar is dissolved. then you have it!
