Great! I just got back from an office party where I made this for my boss, as she is allergic to wheat. Every single person out of 10 people ate both the cake and the ice cream I served with it! Like others have said, a little goes a long way.
Things I didn't bother with:
1) the water bath
2) the wax paper
3) the dunking the bottom in hot water before serving
These didn't make any difference at all. It still came out perfect. I simply unsnapped the springform lock and voila, ready to cut.
Things I did do:
1) Followed others' suggestions of one bag of chocolate chips and 4 squares unsweet chocolate
2) Used a springform 10.5 inch pan sprayed with Pam.
3) Served it with vanilla ice cream
4) Served it at room temperature
It absolutely needed something like the ice cream to go with it. I wished I had fresh whipped cream, it would have been better maybe. But as it is, this recipe comes out like the moistest, richest brownie you've ever had. So between the "brownie" and the ice cream, no one could refuse! I don't think it would be good just by itself, as it needs the vanilla or cream to offset the richness so you're not overloaded with chocolate taste. I don't think the caramel drizzle others have suggested would be good, as it is extremely sweet already. Your call. Enjoy!
