I don't have a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate, but after the birth of my third kid five years ago, I was served the most moist, delicious brownie while in the hospital. I spent a lot of time trying to find a replicate (I do know the hospital used all organic super healthy whatever, which I don't have time to figure out). This recipe I have been using for at least four years, and I and everyone I have passed it on to loves it. Less than five minutes to mix, and only one pan used. My kids love the uncooked batter as much as they love the cooked product. Thank you, Tracy!
Wow! Really good! Fudge-y, chocolatey, rich, and delicious. They are just a bit dry, but that's my fault. I forgot them in the oven for a few minutes. Even still, they are great. I made them with 'Mom's Fudge Frosting', Mom's Fudge Frosting - which is delicious by the way. Thanks!
Wow, wow, wow! I made this with carob powder due to my recent allergy to chocolate. This hit the spot in more ways than one! No one else cared that it wasn't made with chocolate because this recipe is that good! It is fudgy, dense, rich, and moist- everything I look for in a brownie.
They only needed 22 minutes in my oven, and I used an 8x8 pan. I thought I would frost them, but frosting is absolutely unnecessary. They would be terrific to use for ice cream sandwiches. I cut the brownies into 30 small squares. They equal about 82 cal per square, so I can count them as diet food! ;) Thanks for the recipe!
