Every week, one of our volunteers shares their quarantine faves. Meet this week's volunteer, Aishwaria from Canada!
Hi, my name is Aishwaria, and I'm going to be a highschool junior. What I love to do, over my free time is bake, help people in whatever I can help them for, and also raise awareness to situations. For example BLM. During this summer as COVID-19 hit, I was no longer able to do things I would normally do. For example, hangout with my friends, go to the beach, or mall, etc. While I was looking at stories, I found this opportunity which is IWC. By looking at what I could do just at home to help others, I was like why not give it a try. So far for IWC, I have written this blog, and also made cards for the Trillium Health Partner. Throughout my experience with IWC, I hope to gain more skills, and help people in need throughout these tough times!

Recipe: The Best Fudgy Brownies Credit: Tasty
- 8 oz good-quality chocolate (225 g), semi-sweet
- 12 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 ¼ cups sugar (250 g)
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour (95 g)
- ¼ cup cocoa powder (30 g)
- 1 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking dish with parchment paper.
2. Chop the chocolate into chunks. Melt half of the chocolate in the microwave in 20-second intervals, saving the other half for later.
3. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer, then beat in the eggs and vanilla for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture becomes fluffy and light in color.
4. Whisk in the melted chocolate (make sure it's not too hot or else the eggs will cook), then sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Fold to incorporate the dry ingredients, being careful not to overmix as this will cause the brownies to be more cake-like in texture.
5. Fold in the chocolate chunks, then transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how fudgy you like your brownies, then cool completely.
7. Slice, then serve with a nice cold glass of milk!
