This was a great, simple recipe from which to jump off from. After reading several reviews stating this was either too cake-like, or somewhere in between, I Made the following conclusions. First, DO NOT WHIP OR USE A MIXER when mixing these ingredients together. Just get a spatula or spoon and incorporate them enough to be as uniformly wet as possible. Just like a box recipe, there will be some small lumps. Fear not, it will even out as it bakes. Also, because I like think, heavy fudge-like brownies, I substituted some brown sugar for a quarter of the white sugar. I doubled the recipe, so that meant 1 1/2 cups white sugar, and 1/2 cup of brown sugar, just to give it a bit more density and intense flavor.
Unfortunately my timer did not alert me to the end of baking time, and they stayed in the oven a little longer than they should have, but they STILL turned out great. The edges were crunchy with a heavy, dense brownie throughout. I am pleased they had wiggle room. Will definitely use this recipe again, maybe as a base and throw some yummy chocolate pieces or candy into it next time. Oh and I didn't bother with the frosting either. They turned out just perfect without it
