I used this brownie recipe for a class I am in. I needed a brownie recipe that includes water because my class experiment is replacing water with a different ingredient (a nutraceutical) to add healthy benefits to the food. THis recipe was EXCELLENT for what i needed it for. They came out moist and cakey (I took them out 5-10 min early each time). I have made them at least once or twice each week for this class and they are very consistent. However they are VERY dark chocolate. Anyone in my class that likes dark chocolate LOVED this recipe. If you are a more milk chocolate person use semi-sweet chocolate instead and I think you'll enjoy the recipe more. Its deffinitely for Dark chocolate lovers. Read More

These were absolutely delicious!! I had no walnuts so I omitted those and I only baked for 20 minutes. The brownies are somewhat dense very chocolatey and not too sweet. Just how I like them! Thanks!!! Read More

I had no idea chocolate could taste this awful! I'm not sure where this recipe goes wrong but both the flavor and texture are very bad. Read More

These brownies really did seem to melt in your mouth which i thought was a nice difference. But I thought they were too cakey instead of the rich and chewy texture I prefer. I would also leave out the salt beacause it tasted pretty salty. Read More

These brownies came out horrible. They were very cakey and rubbery. The chocolate gave it a dense taste but the consistency was not good. Read More

i personally loved this mixture! I love brownies but ive always found them too sweet. This however tasted slightly sweet but not over powering. i agree they were more cake than brownie but only just. so light yet chewy. i would say dont bother with salt and if you like it sweet just go for a sweeter chocolate. Thanks for posting this up! my partner will love them too. Read More
