These are awesome! My sister in law made them first and they were so good I had to make some for myself. Nest time I think I'll try adding some chopped pecans or walnuts to the batter. Thanks for the recipe!

They are good but very cake-like. I suggest reducing the baking powder to 1 tsp and halving the soda. The flour won't lift as much resulting in a more dense brownie-like bar.

It was absolutely wonderful. The only objection I had was that there was not enough frosting. I made it again and increased the cream cheese to 6 oz., the butter to 6 Tbsp., the vanilla to 2 tsp. and the powdered sugar to 3 cups. I also added ginger and nutmeg to the cake.
