Pretty average. Followed the recipe exactly but it turned out a bit dry. The other chocolate brownie cake is much better ... http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3431/chocolate-brownie-cake

Tried it with fudge chunks instead of nuts, best brownie recipe I've tried.

I agree with Mr. Bond entirely. Gooey middle with four eggs but delicious, nonetheless! Served warm with ice cream. Yummy!

Great recipe although it was a bit gooey when I make this again I'll put 3 eggs in instead.

This is great as a treat or birthday cake if you're short on time but still want to impress. Lovely squidgy chocolate - served at Christmas with Cointreau cream - went down a storm! I use walnuts instead of pecans if I'm feeling a bit stingy!

When I made this cake, it was fair to say it was very well received! The only addition I made was a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
