I followed brownie recipe exactly. Consistency of the batter was sand-like, as others have said. I had to press into pan with my hands. The brownies looked kind of unappealing when baked, and although I had not been planning to use frosting, I ended up making a chocolate glaze to hide the dried out zucchini flecks that were visible on top. The brownies were very crumbly and didn't stay together very well, and I could taste the baking soda in the recipe (I had thoroughly sifted dry ingredients before mixing). Tasted more cakelike than brownie-like, also. Next time I make this, I might add an egg (since it already tasted cakelike), reduce the sugar, and use applesauce instead of oil, because this is a better "healthy" recipe than brownie recipe. As a brownie recipe, I give this 3 stars, but as a zucchini disguise, this recipe gets 4.5 stars. Anything to get my kids to eat their vegetables!
