Drought conditions

Nothing to do with the weather, although it has been particularly unseasonably gorgeous just recently around here.  No, the drought I have is a photographic one.  When I decided to do the 4x6 Photo Love project I didn't really give much thought to exactly how many photos I would be needing by the end of the year.  This month I'm needing nine and I'm running out of inspiration!  Plus at last weekend's crop I needed 10 photos and I'm going to the Eclectic Keepsakes crop on Saturday and I will be needing at least two for that .... I clearly need to get out more - if only to take a few more photos!  It's hard to find a variety of pictures all in the same place or theme.
On a totally different subject, I found myself in the staff room at lunchtime and there had been a delivery of books from a book club that delivers to school.  I found myself irresistably drawn to one simply entitled 'Chocolate'.  In it I found a delicious sounding Chocolate Swirl Brownie with Fudge Topping.  Chocolate Brownie and Fudge - a marriage made in heaven!  So I have scribbled down the recipe with the thought of having my own Great British Bake Off tomorrow afternoon.  The swirl in the brownie is a bit of a cheesecakey mixture in amongst the chocolatey gooey sponge.  Did I mention the chocolate fudge topping?   If it is a success, I will share the recipe but will need to do a reasonable amount of consumer testing before I share.   Followed by an unreasonable amount of exercise to burn off all those naughty calories!

As a favor to you, you understand, I will let you bring one or two of those brownies along to the crop on Saturday - buy I must emphasise I am only offering to eat them as an official brownie consumer tester.

That sounds very generous of Karen....as I'm sure you'd find it well nigh impossible to find someone to test these!!!!!
How about a chocolate brownie LO.

There's your solution ~ photograph the process of your baking tomorrow. You'll soon get to 10. Is it okay to admit that I'm not that keen on chocolate based cakes?

Yum! I'll happily offer my services as official taster - I have experience of doing this scientifically, you understand (though I guess the great fudge comparison did degenerate into chaos by the end....)

Love the sound of these brownies...if I lived closer I'd be only too willing to be a guinea pig!

Being on a no-sugar diet for the month, I'm glad I don't live close enough to be a taste tester... I would be sorely tempted! Love Ruth's idea of getting your baking process in photos and a layout called "The Anatomy of a Chocolate Fudge Brownie" sounds like fun!

I know exactly what you mean - I am running out of photos here. Clearly we need more excitement.

I like the sound of anything with the word "fudge" in the title
