About this recipe: These chocolate treats are quick to throw together. They are moist, chocolately, cake-like and packed full of walnuts. If you prefer a denser brownie, use plain flour instead of self-raising.

Very quick and easy to make. I used plain flour and added orange extract instead of vanilla and no nuts. They are delicious! - 25 Feb 2012
