What do you think about birthdays? Is it a fun moment for you or it brings you a sweet melancholy by reminding you the fact that another year has passed? Is it a day of joy or is it a day of retrospect and resetting of targets?

Since tomorrow is my birthday, I am trying to think what this day means to me and I realized that during the 44 years of my life the meaning, importance and message conveyed were different each time.

As a child, I was all happy and joyful to celebrate with my friends, big cakes and all the birthday stuff that go with it. As a teenager, I was thrilled I was one year closer to adulthood and all the “glorious” things I could do as an adult!

As a young woman growing one more year gave me the experience and knowledge which led to self-confidence and professional and personal establishment.

After 40’s I kind of feel a sweet melancholy for the years that have passed by and I am resetting my goals for the future. For me, it is the time to retrospect and see which new paths open for the future and which dreams will never be fulfilled. I feel a little sad for the things I wasn’t able to succeed and optimistic about the things I am setting to achieve in the future.

With all this in my mind and wanting to share this special day- I think for everyone- with you, I am treating you with this delicious Fudge Brownies. In moments like this I always turn to chocolate to either boost my joy or to console me. This is a truly perfect brownie, moist and chocolatey. The recipe comes from King Arthur’s Flour, but I made a few changes to make it lighter and jazz it up a little.

Orange Fudge Brownies

Ingredients

1 cup margarine

2 cups sugar

Instructions

Preheat oven to 175° C/ 350° F.

Butter and flour a squared pan with dimensions 27cmX34cm/ 10inX13in.

In a saucepan over low heat melt the margarine.

Add the sugar and stir to combine.

Return the mixture to the stove just until it becomes hot but not bubbly about 45° C/ 110° F.

In this way the sugar dissolves better and gives a shiny crust on the brownies.

In a mixer pour the eggs and beat them with the cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder and orange extract until they become smooth.

Add the hot margarine/sugar to the mixture and mix until smooth.

Add the flour and mix again until it is incorporated.

Add the white chocolate chips and stir with a spatula.

Pour the batter to the pan and bake for about 30 minutes.

When you insert the knife make sure it comes out with a few moist crumbs.

The brownie must be firm on the edges and very moist but not uncooked on the center.

Let it cool, cut and serve.
