These brownies are very good. I think they are more cake-like than fudgey. I doubled the recipe because my boys really like brownies. We love the frosting! Thanks ellie~

YUM!!!! Made these this weekend for guests and they turned out pefect. I like a cakey style brownie, dh likes chewy - this gave us both what we like and frosting too! Easy to make so they will be made often. It was a great recommendation - Thanks!
