      I also have this brownie recipe. I love these brownies because they are chewy and have a nice chocolate flavor without being too sweet. I've made these a few times - they are really easy to make and require only a few ingredients!

      There were a few problems with this recipe, although they did taste OK. The #1 problem was that the batter wasn't even close to filling up my small brownie pan. I couldn't even spread it out paper thin, so I had to make an emergency 2nd batter, for which I had to send my husband to the store for more butter. When they were cooled, they cut nice but I thought they were a little too "wet" which I thought would happen because of the amount of flour. I think they needed more flour and some cocoa powder too. They needed more chocolate in general.... you could barely taste the chocolate flavor at all. While they did taste OK, it was more like a very sweet butter dessert than a chocolate dessert. The butter flavor was pretty major and definitely the dominant flavor in this dessert.

      These were very good brownies. They were dense, moist and chocolaty. I was a little unsure about only using 1/4 cup of flour and did add another 1/4 cup for a total of 1/2 cup. This only made the brownies a bit more cake-like (a bonus, in my opinion). I did include the nuts, as I like the texture and flavor that they add to brownies. Very easy recipe for ingredients I always keep on hand!
