The first brownies I ever hated so much I couldn't eat.Very cakey, dry, and extremely bland. Not very chocolate-ty. I should have read the reviews before making. I tried saving them with a layer of melted chocolate on top, but it's so hard to get past the terrible consistency. Just awful, something has to be wrong with this recipe.

this is my favorite brownie recipe, but I have a recipe from many years ago that calls for a 16-by-11-2 inch pan. I also shorten the bake time to 30-32 mins and it comes out perfect. I love it!

The brownies came out dry (and I even subbed agave syrup for the sugar. And they were still really dry) and cakey not fudgy or chewy. They are also not like the photo. Needs more oil to make these brownies work. Regardless, this recipe produced a simple chocolate semi sweet loaf, good with coffee or afternoon tea but certainly not to die for brownies.

This recipe is a complete fail. Made it exactly as written; result is dry, not chewy, not very chocolatey, and completely unlike actual brownies. There is no way that the photo shown is of this recipe. Will be throwing away the whole pan.

this recipe is totally off - it is more of a dry cake than a rich moist brownie. You really should test this recipe before posting it. Very disappointing

The picture shown was not from this recipe. They look nothing like those dark brownies shown. I am very disappointed and will have to make a new batch with a different recipe.

These brownies were OK. The weren't "fudgey" the way I like them. They had more of a cake consistency. I also thought they were a little too sweet with the icing.
