  1. A little tricky, at 25 minutes the toothpick came out clean so I pulled them out. Waited until cool to cut and middle was still very raw. Will be cooking longer next time. Pieces that were done were yummy!

  2. Should the frosting have some milk in it? It was not spreadable. Very delicious, but I agree with the other commenter...I baked my 8x8 for 32 minutes and it was still underdone. Maybe more flour? Thanks for a cocoa powder brownie recipe though!
