I used a different type of pan entirely, so while I can't necessarily speak for the accuracy of the baking time or temperature as written, I CAN say these are delicious, and well worth trying, regardless of what size pan you use - just bake them until the brownie looks set, starts to pull away from the sides, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out ALMOST clean, but a few crumbs still remain on the toothpick. Any more than that and you'll surely overbake them. In my case, I used the little 6-mold heart pan by Wilton. They're kind of shallow, and this recipe scaled down to 5 servings gave me just the amount I wanted for me and Hubs - four, good-sized brownies. For those of you who have this specialty cake pan, I baked them at 350 degrees for about 21 minutes and let them cool about 10 minutes before I attempted to unmold them (and they were stubborn, even tho' I sprayed the pan with a flour-based cooking spray). This recipe is all you'd want in a decadent chocolate brownie - rich and buttery, fudgy and pleasantly sweet. The coffee liqueur taste is not obviously noticeable, however, I appreciated the way it livened up the flavor. They would have been just fine as is, but because I wanted to dress them up a bit I made a glaze (just winged the amounts) of powdered sugar, melted chocolate, butter, vanilla, a dribble of corn syrup, and Kahlua.
