Because it makes me happy ....

I am, in general, a rather happy child. Life chugs along, brings its ups and downs and most always, I can see the silver lining, even if faint.. But, there do come, once in a while, some downer days... Without a warning and sometimes expected, the dark cloud looms over and refuses to budge..

Then my Knight-in-Shining-Armour has to trek all the way from whichever part of the world he is in and come make me smile. He always does.. never-failingly.. :) He is dependable, that way.. actually every way :))

Anyway, I had a bout recently... the clouds came and nested.. laid chicks and built an army of not-feeling-good-ness. So, KiSM came poo-poo-ed the clouds and sent them running elsewhere.

The sun peeked again over a largely cloudy sky.. but hey! atleast there was a bit of shine and all. Pleasure in little things, one must take... Knight went back where he came from and I was by myself again. It was ok, I was feeling kinda sunny again...

Then I made this brownie. It makes me happy! without fail. I am not a chocolate person but I love my brownies.. especially when the sun is shy and rain abounds. This one melts, is gooey and full of butter.. all good things to tuck into when you feel not all chirpy and fun... I don't even wait for it cool completely. I sit with the whole bowl .. scoop .. eat .. feel better...

Double Chocolate Pudding Brownie Β©
(Original FSK recipe)

5 T butter
1/3 cup + 1 T sugar
1/6 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/6 cup milk chocolate chips
1 egg
1/3 cup flour
3 T almond meal
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
2 T dry coconut for sprinkling

Over a double boiler melt together the butter, sugar, salt, cocoa and chocolate until the butter has melted and it's a thick mixture. Remove from heat and whisk in the egg quickly. Add the almond meal, flour, baking powder and mix completely.

Pour the batter into a greased 5 inch square dish. Sprinkle the coconut over the batter. Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes. The center will still be gooey and jiggle a bit but will not be runny. Remove to cool on rack for as long as you can hold yourself.
