"I really liked this recipe. Unlike a couple other reviewers, I had no problem with the texture; they were certainly not crumbly for me. I found the texture quite satisfying - smooth and soft. Another reviewer mentioned they were overpowered by the chocolate taste. I didn't feel the same way (in fact, I added a little extra chocolate and loved it). So I'm guessing that particular critique was simply a matter subjectivity (and one that is super easy to correct for in a second batch).<br/><br/>Instead of a standard square or rectangular baking dish/pan, I baked them in cupcake pan and they turned out great.<br/><br/>Also appealing was the simplicity of the recipe - I was able to knock out a batch over my lunch break while working from home one day."
"I added pecans about a cup and substituted 1/2c brown sugar in place of the other 1/2c white sugar. I loved these cake-like, not too sweet brownies. So did my guests. And they where very easy if you have an electric mixer for the butter creaming part. The other ingredients must be mixed to just blended for best results."
"Very quick and easy. Not quite as good as mom's, but still pretty darn good."
"They were very crumbly with a poor texture. They were very sweet and definately appealing to children."
"I made these because they seemed simple and I had all the ingredients. They taste OK, I just wasn't prepared for the super chocolatey taste. I also had the problem of them being crumbly. I think though that I'll serve the rest of this batch over vanilla ice cream."
"this is some of the best brownies ive ever had. i fund that if it has a glaze it is even better"
"I'm finding a lot of posters forgetting to list pan measurements....some of us more seasoned cooks might be able to interpret, however the rest might not be able to. Please double-check submissions out of respect to the beginners."
"my husband and i loved the brownies."
"The chocolate flavor was pretty good, but we found these very crumbly, and hard to handle for that reason. Sorry."
"This is the most simple, and best tasting, texture etc. homemade brownie recipe I have ever tried! They are a big hit with my entire family."
"This was fantastic, and it made plenty of servings. They still went pretty quick though! I did only use about quarter of the suggested cocoa though, and it was still really chocolatey. Thankyou, I will definitely be making these again soon!"
