These brownies are ok. I properly wouldn't recommend these to anyone as I've tried the Best ever brownies listed on this website and love them.

I found this very quick and easy, unfortunately my baking must have been slightly off as it after cooling it off before cutting, it was very crumbly and not as 'fudgy' or as moist as I would have liked. Tasty though regardless, ginger's a great idea!

This is a lovely treat the only draw back is trying to thinly chop the ginger takes a little but well worth. I am wondering how long they will keep if put into a pretty box and given over the festive season. Does anybody know, if not I will put some in a box and see

Does this recipe freeze well? It would be good to be able to make it in advance for Christmas!
