TWD - Tribute to Katharine Hepburn Brownies




I never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun.
Katharine Hepburn

This week is a special TWD, because we are baking with a non-TWD host, Lisa of Surviving Oz, who is the designer of our brilliant new logo:



She has chosen the Tribute to Katharine Hepburn brownies.

Apparently, Kate once said that you should never have too much flour in your brownies, and these brownies are a testament to that. They are of the gooey, fudgy variety rather than the cakey, firm type.

I baked my brownies according to the directions, and I think they were just perfect. The chocolate chunks were just on the right side of oozey, and when served warm - mamma mia, they were devine! This has to be one of my favourite Dorie recipes by a country mile.

To check out how the other TWD bakers went with these brownies, please check out the TWD blogroll. Here's hoping that Kate would approve.

Wow, your brownies look exceptional! I love the gooey factor but I think I could have baked it a minute or two longer so it would have been easier to cut. Your brownies look perfectly cut!

Hi Jules, the fudgy ones are good, yeah?

LOL - thanks Megan.

Thanks Jill - believe me, warm is good.

Hi Maria, do try them - Lisa has the recipe.

Thanks Wendy :)

Hi Caitlin, I will gratefully take either (as long as "fudgy" does not equate to "undercooked").

Agreed Steph.

Good to hear Tammy.

Thanks Em - I think these deserve the rave.
