Best Brownies (Angie)

First and foremost, a HAPPY BELATED TEACHER'S DAY to all teachers in this world...

Helped my cousin to make these cards for the teachers in her school. Actually she had asked me to google for nice wordings to be pasted on the teacher's day card she intended to do. I ended up helping her do the card instead of looking for the wordings! Hahaha... It was fun making the cards for you kak... after a long time not having the chance to play around with art. And this is my signature at the back of the card, copyright controlled..... *wink*


Last Monday, I thought of updating my blog, for the teacher's day entry, soon as I've finished doing the orders that came from ANZ, but then I got a sad news from hubby's family. One of his cousin, a former teacher, passed away. Datin Hajjah Aminah Zakaria passed away at the age of 49 after bravely fighting with the final stage cancer. May her soul rest in peace. Al-Fatihah.

I am not going to write much today. My list-to-do is still very long. So I will go straight to the recipe to share. Made these brownies for Syahmi's teachers. Besides the brownies, I had packed a chocolate chip muffin as well in the box. Thank you to all the teachers who had kindly taught my son. May all of you be blessed....

Thank you to Angie from Allrecipes for the recipe. I made a few adjustments to the recipe to suit my taste.

  14. Salam Mama,

    Tumpang tanya, adakah Allahyarhamah Datin Hjh Aminah Zakaria tu penceramah yang sering diundang dlm forum agama di tv tu ?

  15. hana :
    Wei, jangan makan manis-manis selalu sangat cik oi. Kesihatan harus dijaga. Mama ni, nampak je buat benda manis setiap entry, tapi sebenarnya, mama makan cipuuuuuuuttt je tau. Yang lain, sedekah! Betul tau, tak tipu...chong sikit je... hahaha....

    lina :
    Try jangan tak try...mama pun suka wat muffin, tapi tak suka makan...

    ct_nurmarlissaa :

    kucingorengemok :

    izahdaut :
    Kek lagi gebu, brownies ni macam berat sket. Kiranya, brownies ni ala ala kek bantat la kot... muahahaha... ada yang kena ketuk kepala ni kang... cabotttt......

    Ummi :
    Waalaikumussalam Ummi....
    Thanks for the wish.
    Orders tu banyak, bermusim. La ni tengah relax tapi sib baik tak de yang mengoder... fikiran kita tengah sedikit serabut la... I need to organise myself soon sebelum bertambah parah! Huhuhu....

    deeTha :
    Waalaikumussalam deeTha... Selamat datang ke teratak mama yang seadanya ini ye....Lor, peminat coklat gak ke ni?

    Zack Zachoes :
    Waalaikumussalam Zack. Terima kasih ye sebab sudi berkunjung ke mari. Tapi ni mesti kali pertama menegur mama kan? Rasanya sebelum ni, mama lom pernah came across your nickname yang unik ni. Well, mama ni, to be frank, kalau buat sesuatu, makan ciput je. So tak berapa nak dapat differentiate between all the other brownies. Maybe the latest one is the nicest kot plus jimat kos... *wink*

    Watierman, rmanbkr :
    Waalaikumussalam Watie.... I HAVE to make time! By hook or by crook... tu yang towards the end, terus tergolek!!!! At times, I do push myself to the limit! Not healthy I know, tapi dah pe'el macam tu... moga diberi kesedaran dengan kadar segera! Amin... I need to take it easy, but will I be able to? Huhuhuu...

    Uncle Lee :
    Hi Uncle Lee... All gonelah Uncle Lee, very sorry. The brownies were meant for the teachers' of my son's school. Next time you're around, I'll bake more and the whole tray will be yours to enjoy with your Iced Coffee okay... take care!

    ummu :
    Waalaikumussalam Ummu... Terima kasih Ummu. Itu je la yang termampu dibuat dek kreativiti yang amat terhad ni. Memang suka nak kongsi resepi yang telah dicuba, dengan harapan akan mendapat sedikit pahala....

    Tina :
    Hello there Tina. Thank you for visiting my blog. Glad to have you on board. Oh how sweet of you. Will collect your lovely award soon ya... Thanks so much for your kind thoughts....

    Deliah's Deli :
    Waalaikumussalam Deliah... tu la, mama dah selami fikiran Deliah... wah...terlebih sudah! Hahaha...

    lina :
    Terima kasih banyak-banyak Lina.... ni yang rasa macam nak terbang je ni... hahaha...

    GuavaStrawberry :
    Waalaikumussalam. Allahyarhaman Datin Hjh Aminah was a school teacher. Dia bukan penceramah.
