I should begin this post by thanking each and every one of you for sending me your brownies[virtual,but still!].What a tremendous response,I am floored!When I had thought of a Brownie event,Ajay gave me a small warning,not to be disheartened if I do not get many entries,as Brownies are something which are not baked regularly,unlike cakes.But boy,was he wrong!So many of you sent me brownies which were baked exclusively for the event,I am still pleasantly surprised,thank you so much once again!

Hi Divya,

I just stumbled across your blog when searching for a chocolate icing recipe.
I have lived in Australia for approximately 30 years, but am of Indian descent.
The recipes on your blog look divine, and I am looking forward to trying them out.

In my family, I am only ever asked to bring one thing to parties - brownies.  This is a yummy, easy recipe.
I hope you enjoy it.
Attached is a photo of the brownies used to make a cake for my nephew's 18th birthday.
I have dusted it with icing sugar and drizzled chocolate icing and raspberry sauce over it.

Congratulations on the success of your blog.

Best wishes,
