What a terrible recipe! The flour isn't listed in the ingredients, there isn't any leavening in the recipe, liquid has to be added to make the batter the right consistency for brownies. The brownies baked unevenly, and there is no "prep time" or "cook time" to mention the hour of cooling, either. The only redeeming quality of this recipe is that an experienced baker, with ingenuity and improvisation, can create a brownie that tastes decent.
