Temperature has dropped down drastically since last 48 hours due to Cyclone Laila. Cool weather prompted me to bake some eggless brownies. I more or less followed this eggless chocolate brownies recipe from Chow Times and it didn’t disappoint. Rich, with melt-in-the-mouth texture, these brownies are to die for.
