Top Review by sconehead

Made these for my daughters 14th birthday. I couldn't imagine eating 1/8th of this recipe though...I cut it into 24 pieces and that was almost too much. It is very rich! The squares were still about 2 1/2" square which is more than enough. I did change a few things in the recipe however. I only used 3/4 cup butter and the rest applesauce, and only used 4 eggs instead of 5. I was wondering if they would come out more like cake without using that much butter, but they were ooooooeeey goooooey!! I frosted them with dark chocolate fudge frosting. YUM!!! Will make again!
