Today, I am moving on to a classic American combo- Brownie and Ice cream.
For the past few months, the box that housed the All purpose flour is
now occupied by other ingredients. I enjoy baking so now its
incorporating more of healthier ingredients into what we like.
I already have eggless Adzuki bean brownie, Eggless Eggless Chocolate Fugde Brownies , Eggless cream biscuit browines and now it is time for my favorite ingredient to show up.So here is one with Oats and a light coffee flavor.
So, along with these brownies, I made a rose flavored ice cream that is super simple but very delicious.
ever I think of brownies and ice creams, it takes me back to the time
when we met for the 50th edition of BM celebrations in Chennai and
Srivalli had arranged for a surprise dinner for us and one of the items
on the menu was Brownie and Ice cream.
It was a lot of
fun and I was busy chatting and the only other thing that kept my kiddo
out of my hair are these two things!!! If you are wondering what the
other one is, it is Srivalli’s kids who kept my kid engaged and
entertained all through dinner.So it is something I can never forget…
After all this nostalgia, it is time to see the recipe,right….
