  5. Mix flour, sugar, baking soda.
  6. Add eggs to mix and stir well.
  7. Add dry mix and stir gently.
  8. Spread into prepared pan.
  9. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick or fork inserted in center comes out slightly sticky.
  10. Cool before cutting into squares.

I have made these brownies twice within a week and they are really wonderful. The first time I made them,I baked them for 20 minutes as the recipe said and they were way too doughy - delicious but doughy. The 2nd time I used 1 1/3 cup of flour instead of 1 1/4 cup, and 1/2 tsp. baking soda instead of 1/4 tsp., and increased the baking time to 27 minutes and they were to die for. I frosted them with chocolate butter cream frosting and we could not leave them alone. This is probably going to be my brownie recipe from now on, not only because they taste so good, but because they extremely easy to make.

I tried to make these, and ended up with bad results. However, I have found out that my baking soda was no good..and therefore will have to resumbit a review whenever I get around to making them again :-( They smelled absolutely wonderful while baking, but were just very unedible due to probs with my baking soda. Im looking forward to making them again in the near future. Thanks for the recipe.

This was truly an easy recipe to put together, but they seemed to dry out quickly. The flavor was good, but the dryness just didn't do it for us. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
