I thought about not giving a review on these brownies at all, they were the worst brownies we have ever tried. the texture was rubbery,the taste awful. I made them just as the recipe states,but left out the walnuts. the cook time says 35 minutes,it was more like 15 minutes. we wach tried one then threw them away.

The first time I've made them, and they taste delicious! I used all the suggestions from Steph82. But I think the batter fell, beause they still felt ever so slightly rubbery. Next time I wil put 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder to make it fluffier, and I will substitute the 1/2 cup of water with skim milk to add further richness. Excellent substitutions, Steph82!
