@kestane:  Convenience, totally! Especially since this recipe bakes for an hour. But it’s worth it, I promise!

I never let them cool for the reccommened 30 minutes lol

i love baking and i do everything from scratch, whether it is a 5 layer cake or cookies, with the exception of brownies.  boxed brownie mix is fantastic and cannot be beat.

brownies? Donna Hay’s recipe (raspberry spiked brownies) rules. SO EASY!

200g dark chocolate, chopped
250g butter 
1 3/4 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1 1/3 cup  plain flour
1/4tsp baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 1/2 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
 
Preheat oven to 180C. Melt chocolate and butter over low heat and stir until smooth (note that this is where I diverged from the instructions to save some washing up, but I don’t think it made a great deal of difference). Remove from the heat and add the sugar and stir. Then add the eggs and stir quickly as you add each one. Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa and mix.
 
Pour into a 23cm, greased and lined square cake tin (line it a fair way up the sides so you can pull the brownie out using the baking paper once it’s done and plop it on the cooling rack). Top with raspberries and bake for 45 minutes or until set. Brownies should be very fudgy in the middle.

Sorry, but I’m with the boxed brownie crowd. I’ve never tasted a from-scratch brownie that was  better than one from a boxed mix. I do like to jazz up my brownie mix by adding chocolate chunks.

@gingerkitten:  I tried your recipe and it was great!! It was super easy and not too much more of a hassle than the boxed kind. I could tell when I was mixing it up that they would turn out nice and gooey instead of dry and cakey. Woohoo, brownie success!

I’ll have to try some of the other recipes posted here 🙂

@hopefloats:  I usually have the same issue as you. But I found one that is SO yummy lol. It’s a buttermilk brownie recipe with a peanut butter cream cheese frosting. The brownies turn out nice and fudgey and moist. I found it on Pintrest!

The only thing I added to this was a little bit more cocoa powder in the batter and then plopped in some semi-sweet chocolate chips right before baking so you get spread out chips through out that stay solid after cooking 🙂
