I changed this recipe some, to not use butter but the shortening eq. I also melted this down and mixed the cocoa completely, then added the sugar, using 1/2c. at a time to taste the sweetness. These are too dense to be baked in a 8x8 pan... you should use 9x13 as stated. Parchment paper is also a must. I did not grease mine, mostly because it is parchment paper, you aren't supposed to, that's the idea. Please view the picture I posted that shows up close along with a measurement of 1/8". Yes, these are thin by height means. They are not spongy, like cake. They are very rich. If you are not looking for as described, do not make this, you won't be happy. I did bake at 300 for 33ish minutes. I always feel airpressure and altitude play a part in things not baking properly for some. I am not much above sea level, summer, barometric pressure is fair (not rainy or dry)... baked perfectly.
