Date and Walnut Brownies

D for Dates yes we have to cook to days recipe name starts with D. I was stuck in between to three recipes for this letter. From the beginning I am baking cakes or cookies, never made a savory recipe . wanted to make a savory recipe. So I searched for a savory recipe and find a Dutch pan cake recipe but I didn't satisfy with the Ingredients. not even a single ingredients that the name start with D. That is a Dutch baby pancake only D is there in the name so I drop the idea but the recipe is there in my draft will post it for sure...
date brownie                                                                 Next recipe is Dill bread I started searching for dill leaves in the market I didn't find any market, not even in Koyambedu market till today. I drooped this plan also finally decided to make a Date pudding. Last full month full when ever I wanted to make this pudding specially had dinner out side.. ahhh finally I decided not make a pudding stick to make Date and nut Brownies. I don't know why so many complications in making a recipe with the letter D. Any way here is the recipe with letter D for Dates.
