Classic Old Hollywood brownies recipe

A timeless classic!

Here is a fantastic recipe for fudge-like brownies made from scratch. The recipe comes from classic Hollywood film actress Katharine Hepburn, and was published in The New York Times shortly after her death.

One of my favorite films of hers is Bringing Up Baby from 1938. She plays an heiress who annoys her on screen love interest (played by the strikingly handsome Cary Grant) until he falls in love with her. It's one of the first classic films I ever saw, and was my biggest inspiration to begin writing my own stories at a very young age. It's a zany, wholesome romantic comedy, and perfect for film lovers looking for something new to watch in quarantine.

These brownies are also the perfect way to pass the time. Let's get on with it!

After your brownies are nicely cooled, make some tea, curl back up on the couch and turn on a timeless film! In this clip, Hepburn and Grant go on the hunt for a priceless dinosaur bone that the dog stole!
