Made these, and they were delicious, although I only baked them for 20 minutes and I still feel they were overdone. I guess it's all about preference. Whether you like your brownies cakey or fudgy. - 06 Jun 2015


Very good brownies and so easy too! However, I found that these brownies took only about 30 mins to cook though, so worth keeping an eye on them whilst they cook. - 17 May 2014
