I have already posted fresh cherries infused brownies (egg based) since its a wish to post an eggless version of basic brownie. I have adapted the same and tried several times before publishing the recipe here. According to Wiki, A chocolate brownie is a flat, baked square or bar developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in both the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century. The brownie is a cross between a cake and a cookie in texture. Brownies are either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density, and they may include nuts, frosting, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or other ingredients.
