My go to brownie recipe... but we use half the amount of sugar. You can cook for longer, but then they are not so squidgy, more like cake.

Omg these are sooo good. As others have said, they required considerably longer than 22 mins, but unbelievably good and worth the wait.

Absolutely delicious, squidgy inside but with a crispy exterior. I used unsalted butter. The only gripe was it took much longer than 22 minutes, nearer an hour. Just keep checking till it's done, it's worth the wait.

My first time making brownies and absolutely delicious!! They needed quite a bit longer than 22 mins but I did use quite a deep square pan :)

Made Brownies for the first time today and used this recipe! was excellent, added a bit more white choc though! felt like being a bit more indulgent... also i wasn't sure if the butter had to be salted or unsalted? But overall AMAZING BROWNIES
