Most brownie recipes are too fudgy for me. These rise up better and have a more cakey texture to them. Sometimes I mix them right in the pan. Just have to be careful not to splash flour all over the counter!

Hi WArmHeart39 Thank you for this quick recipe! The taste is wonderful and I love brownies. The only thing that I found is that these are more like a steamed pudding rather than a cakey brownie. Still great for when I want chocolate in an instant (well...almost) Judy in WA

These were pretty good. I was really craving chocolate cake when I remembered saving this last night =) It definately helped the craving. I ate 3! I used a square pan and they came out fine. Thank you for brownies in a flash--will certainly make them again.
