    gourmetmomma's Note:

    Oooey, Gooey, Rich and Chewy. If you are a fan of cake-like brownies, these are NOT for you. This makes a small pan of brownies that are moist and dense and need no icing. They form a crust that cracks and is a wonderful contrast to the fudgy texture of the brownie. Like all other basic brownie recipes, these are a great base for adding in chunks of chocolate, nuts, or whatever. As an adult, I like them with a 1/2 tsp of espresso powder added. For the brownie purist, the nuts are strictly optional. When I'm having one of those "must have chocolate" days, these are the perfect fix. After 1 brownie, I'm cured.

      Perfect Brownies. I like a fudgy chewy brownie and these were exactly that. I followed the recipe exactly including bake time. I omitted the nuts because I like a plain chocolate brownie. I cooked them for 25 minutes. I let them cool completely on a wire rack in the pan. I don't know how these could be cakey with no leavening agent.
      Anyhow they are perfect

      After reading all the previous reviews I wondered how these brownies would be. I followed your directions to a T. I made a double batch and baked them for 35 minutes in a metal baking pan.

      They turned out perfect!! They were chewy, not the least bit "cake like", and enjoyed by all. I will add this to my recipe box. Oh, my family is already asking for a rerun. Thanks so much for this wonderful, easy to make recipe.

      These are fudgy and kind of chewy around the edges which is the way that I like my brownies. I made these yesterday and when I woke up this morning someone in the family had eaten nearly the whole pan, all except for 2 brownies. I think my son and his friend are to blame. Next time I make these I'm going to hide them in my room! I've made these tons of times now and I sometimes double this recipe and put it in a 13x9 pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. These brownies are total chocolate heaven. I think that this would be a great recipe to make a mix from too. I'm going to double this recipe and put the dry ingredients in a canning jar. This mix would store well because it doesn't have baking soda or baking powder in it. I think that it would fit in a quart jar.
