i wanted to make something nice before i start healthy eating tomorow, i was quite dissapointed, the first few bites were nice and there wasnt much wrong with the flavour but i thought it was far too rich and after eating a piece i felt really sick. The recipy is also called brownie cake, its definitly a brownie, its not like cake.

Ultimately the best brownies I've ever had or made. I made these for my little brother's birthday and he wanted the pieces square, so I baked the mixture in a couple of cake tins and they turned out exactly like the picture. It's a shame I only got to have two pieces!

Fab brownie recipe. I made it on a rainy sunday afternoon and it was just what I needed !! I didnt have enough cooking chocolate so I used a spare snickers bar that was in the cupboard to make up the difference - it worked a treat, so much so will do the same next time :)

A bit to sweet and sticky for me. Made these twice in case I had got the recipe wrong the first time but still isn't my favourite recipe.

Amazing recipe. I can't eat chocolate so I edited this recipe to make it suitable.
I added 2 more tablespoons of golden syrup instead of chocolate and used chai tea latte powder instead of cocoa powder!

My family couldn't believe how good it was and are waiting for the next time I make it!

Well, that didn't last long!! Gorgeous and simple and will definitely make again. Cooked for 20-25 minutes which was perfect in my oven.

this was easy to make but made the mistake of putting it back in the oven for longer as the centre didnt seem to set but as it cools the centre sets and is lovely and gooey.

Just made this for the 3rd time and again it has turned out perfect. Crunchy on the edges and soooo gooey in the middle. It never lasts long in my house, the kids and hubby love it ; )

This recipe I have not tried but many people are raving about it on here:)
I am doing a food technology lesson next week and I want to know if I could make it in 2 hours, including making and oven and cooling time? A response would be great:)

Crunchy around the rim, a bit gooey in the middle. Don't let the name "cake" fool you - this is a gigantic brownie. Very chocolatey. Very yummy. A very guilty treat.

Out of the oven for 30 minutes and already a large slice has gone! Son says its the gooeyist (is that a word?) brownie he has ever had. Cooked for 30 minutes in the oven and left to stand for 20 minutes as recipe states, when I turned out it almost fell apart but I think that just adds to its appearance. Will be dressing it up later dusted with some vanilla bean icing sugar and some whipped cream and cherries soaked in ameretto for an adult pudding ; )
Will definately cook again

This is lovely.

I made it gluten free by using gluten free flour, gluten free chocolate and gluten free baking powder and turned out perfect.

Really tasty. Served with double cream. Will make this again and again so easy!!!!
