"There are a zillion brownie recipes out there. This one remains my favorite after nearly 40 years. Some of us have unsweetened cocoa powder and powdered sugar that have been sitting in the cupboard for a year or more, and with their age, can give baked goods and frosting a flat, cardboard taste. As with all recipes, the quality of ingredients determines the quality of the finished product. *Make sure to use cocoa powder, NOT hot cocoa mix in this recipe.*"

"Good, fudgey, rich, and oh-so-satisfying! I put nuts on half (dh is sensitive to pecans) and scooped out a bit while it was still warm. I did take it out about 6 mins early as I like a fudgey texture. Great taste and texture. I will make this again."
"Not enough flavor. The texture was great, kind of fudgy in the middle and chewy edges. Fought over the corners with my son. But, the flavor was seriously lacking.. :("
"Not my kind of brownie. Too cakelike and not much chocolate flavor. Tasted more like a thick Texas sheetcake."
"I have made this many times, and it is frequently requested. Mine always comes out light & fluffy, very cakelike, but everyone enjoys it nonetheless. The frosting is simply wonderful. It often gets eaten first; I have to swat at delinquent fingers taking swipes before I cut it up! Thanks, Lynnie!"
"Extremely Wonderful Brownies!! We love the cakey texture! Very easy little recipe to mix up and bake ... And, with stuff I keep on hand anyway. In fact, this is about the 4th. time I've made them! Thanks to RecipeNut for the great photo! It sold me!! Thank you, NL, for a great recipe! Laudee"
"I wasn\'t crazy about these at all. I will usually eat anything chocolate in sight, but I didn\'t even finish my brownie. It reminded me more of cake than a brownie. "
"Excellent brownies. They came out in between cakey and fudgey (are those real words?). The frosting set up well and was very rich. Great for dessert with a cold glass of milk. Thanks for the recipe..."
"My kids liked these but I thought they were very cake like and the frosting was pretty runny."
"These were a very good brownie . I liked the ease of baking and making the frosting . A nice and quick goodie for the family ."
"These Are Very Good"
"My daughter made these and as she was pouring the batter into the baking pan she said "this is the most fabulous brownie recipe ever." She was so right, these have an incredible chocolaty flavor. Our family is going to say bye bye to boxed mixes. Thanks for posting this. *Updated* Oops, forgot to add the stars"
"These brownies are delicious! Cakey and moist with a yummy creamy frosting!! Melt in your mouth Thanks Northwest Lynnie ; )"
