I'm glad I gave this recipe another try. I made it when it first appeared in magazine ads, with less-than-desirable results. The edges were burned, and the patties oozed and stuck to the sides of the pan. Having said that, this time I lined the long side of the pan with parchment paper, sprayed the paper with cooking spray, and greased the short sides of the pan. Melted butter worked better for me (for the batter), and I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder, as this was all I had. It takes a little care to spread the bottom layer of batter on the paper in the pan but is doable, and I made sure that the patties were positioned 1/2-inch in from all the sides. I placed a sheet pan on the rack below the brownie pan in the oven; this helps with heat distribution and has prevented burning. The brownies took the full 55 minutes in my oven, and they were perfect---no burned edges, and the middle was cooked but not dry. The Special Dark cocoa makes these extra-rich. Now that I know that, with a few extra steps, these are a success for me, I'll definitely make them more often---especially for gifts or pot lucks.
