Here is what I do to get dense, thick, brownies. I'm not a big fan of cake like brownies. The secret I do is:
1. Beat the eggs well in a separate bowl before adding to sugar.
2. I use 1/2c sugar, 1/2c brown sugar
3. Fold in the flour and coca w/ spatula instead of beating in. The less the better, fold enough until just blended, this creates LESS air.
4. For my oven, cook exactly 24 min, most people overcook brownies. Then place brownies in ice bath or freezer to cool completely. This will create a more dense, less cake type of brownie!
I don't even use the frosting, perfect w/ out!
