When I first tried infusing Plums into Kulfi (see recipe here) I was very delighted with the end results and thought that will be my only experiment with Plums then the other day I created Plum Chicken (see recipe here) which was again my first trial with plums in the chicken I got so over whelmed with the results that now I am addicted to this Plum experimentation thing.
From last few weeks "he" is craving for brownies and I am trying my best to make him forget about his cravings because I am not very keen on baking something with too much butter especially when we both are trying to shed down few kilos. But then I found out his chocolate craving has made him snack on chocolate bars all round the day so I had no choice but to bake brownies.
I searched for some low calorie recipe of brownie and end up with this Low Fat version, with some plums in hand and frozen cranberries I got excited about adding a splash of red with plums and cranberries in my brownie, with this Plum Brownie I think I should end my Plum experiments until next season of stone fruits, I don't want my readers to come back and complain about my obsession with Plums.
