    Soft in the inside though little crumbs falls out. Not sure if it is due to reducing the sugar grammage by 22 g (don't like too sweet) and substituting cocoa with raw cacao. My son gave a 6/10 rating 🙂

    This recipe has become my go to for any occasions. It’s simple and delicious. I do find that using diff method for the eggs and butter does give different outcomes. And I added and extra few min or so on the baking depends on which oven I’m using

    It’s was great!! They are a bit Cakey as said earlier but I changed some of the ingredients the third time I made them by using baking spread as butter and I didn’t have enough cocoa powder but I used the last of it which was probably about 15g and then melted around 100g of dark cooking chocolate and it’s made them very tasty!

    It turned out as more of a chocolate cake which was still fudgy. I baked it at 180 degrees for 19 minutes and added chocolate chips which melted and added to the fudginess.

    These turned out exactly as described. Easy to follow recipe. I used a round cake tin and so had to bake them for longer, but still delicious!

    It was very moist and fudge, just as the picture shows. It was extremely rich in taste. I had a piece with some vanilla ice cream on top. Such an indulgence and satisfied my chocolate craving.

    Quick and easy to make. Tastes great, just be sure not to overbake as quickly becomes 'cakey'. I baked for ~20mins.

    Super yummy brownies. I cooked them a little longer than the recipe called for and they were still super fudgy. I also added white chocolate chunks. Then a fudge frosting.
