I made these today, put them in for 15 minutes and when I inserted a skewer it came out clean. The consistency was slightly denser than a sponge cake, however in my opinion it was tastier than one. Perhaps I didn't let it cool long enough? Straight from the oven to the stomach ;)


i tend to use choc chips instead of bothering to melt the chocolate bar, they melt as the brownies cook, far quicker!


Just made this and they taste amazing!!
