TWD: Tribute-to-Katherine-Hepburn Brownies


It is embarrassing to say that I used to mix up Katherine Hepburn with Audrey Hepburn when I was a kid. They looked completely different and I've absolutely no idea what caused the mix-up then. I started to get interested in classic movies during my teenage years, and after watching quite a number of Audrey Hepburn's movies, I've finally realised that these two actresses were two completely different persons and I also started to refer Katherine Hepburn as "the other Hepburn". :-P

The only Katherine Hepburn's movie I've watched so far was The Philadelphia Story, and while I'm not familiar with her work, it's a pleasant surprise to know that she has left behind a legendary brownies recipe. Thanks to Lisa who came up with the new TWD logo (you can see it at the sidebar), I got to try out this recipe because it was chosen for TWD this week. Otherwise, with my habit of skipping the whole brownies section when I go through my cookbooks, I would've give this recipe a miss!

The brownies are soft and fudgey because there isn't much flour in it. A little ground instant coffee and cinnamon powder gives an interesting twist to the flavour. But again, the brownies are too chocolatey for my liking and I could only manage one tiny slice. I love this recipe though, because it was so easy to put together. Everything was done using 3 utensils - spatula, sieve and saucepan, and it goes without saying that I spent very little time in cleaning up the dishes too!

If you want to give the recipe a try, check out Lisa's blog!

Haha. I STILL mix up Audrey and Katherine Hepburn. Same with 'Breakfast Club' and 'Fight Club' (?!?!). I am doomed. I am debating at this moment whether or not to try these brownies...Hmm...I like ultra-fudgey brownies, so perhaps this will be a winner!

I had a go at these as my first attempt at a Dorrie recipe - they were so awesome I made them twice! They lasted about 10 minutes at work before they were all gone!
Namesake brownies
