99.9% of everything I bake is homemade(no box/no mix). Brownies are that .1%, always a box mix. I could never find a homemade recipe that I really liked and since I'm not a huge fan of brownies(but the family is) it didn't really matter to me. So box and I was done. I have a son who has a nut allergy and I have to be extra picky with whatever I buy. He was wanting brownies, we have snow and I couldn't get out and so I turned to looking for yet another scratch recipe to try. My search led me here and I am not disappointed. Excellent recipe! Chewy & fudgy, not cake-like at all. I did not make the frosting. I read some reviews before making and tried some suggestions. First, when I doubled the recipe(baked in 13x9) I used one less egg. Second, I lightly beat the eggs before adding to the butter. My son took one bite and said, "Yes!" with a huge smile. Even I think this recipe could turn my brownie indifference around.
