Katharine Hepburn's Brownies

This is such a popular version of brownies, I don't need to tell you much about it ! The legendary actress, Katharine Hepburn shared her family's signature brownies recipe during an interview with a magazine and ever since they published it in 1975, so many, including Saveur magazine and n number of blogs reprinted it. Here is my version slightly adapted from Epicurious.

These brownies are incredibly chewy though the upper crust is crispy. These are as classy as the wonderful actress.The chocolate flavor is mellow and this is a one bowl recipe, that you can easily whip up.So if you are a person who loves chocolate brownies, I highly recommend you try this soon, if you haven't done so far.

I have this weakness,whenever I see a nice brownies recipe, I try it. This is the fourth kind of brownies I'm posting here on Collaborative Curry. If you are like me, and love different kind of brownies do check these Classic Brownies,Cream Cheese Brownies and Rocky Road Brownies I have posted earlier.This definitely means, there will be more brownies posts coming up in the future,stay tuned!

How are you all enjoying Spring so far ? It has been raining here and rains make me quite nostalgic ! Most of you know that I grew up in Kerala where monsoons take over major part of the seasons. I really miss monsoons here, but I'm glad that we get some rain in Spring and Summer in Colorado.Have a great rest of the Spring and I hope you will make these brownies soon and will fall in love with it,like we did !
