I like the other reviewer, am rating it for the actual recipe, not based on other suggested ingredients or changes, which would then entirely be another recipe all together :) Anyway, I love this recipe. Just finished scarfing down two chunks, plus my three boys scarfed theirs down immediately. Having unhooked myself from the false Duncan Hines and other boxed brands of ingredient gunk that is not good for our bodies, this was perfect. The only difference is I used was unsalted butter and sea salt (fine texture) due to researching the unhealthy and cruel benefits of consuming table salt that is used cheaply here in the USA. This was my first time baking with sea salt and I assumed it would be 'too salty' or something, but it turned out wonderful. Upon the first bite, I thought, hmmm needs a bit more sugar though it already has a good amount of it in there, but after the third bite then my reaction was 'hey this is really good!', When I first made this recipe tonight, I beat the butter and eggs till fluffy and the whole texture of the batter threw me off, it was really light weight, not heavy, like boxed brands, so I was not sure at all about the end result. Plus 25 minutes of baking, I thought it was burning, but it was not, nor was it finished in the middle, so I turned the temp down due to it being baked in a dark nonstick 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 inch pan, so the last temperature change was at 310 on the electric oven for the duration of the timed baking in this recipe.
