Mine came out very dry. I checked it at 20 minutes and the center was still gooey so I baked it another 5 minutes, still gooey. I took it out at 30 minutes. Maybe it was suppose to come out at the gooey point.
The recipe says to pour batter into pan, well I had to plop it into a pan because it was so thick.
I think I will stick with my buttermilk brownie recipe.

I have made these many times in my own oven with excellent results, but when I made these at a friend's house, I forgot to consider the possible difference in her oven. I baked them for 22 minutes which is perfect in my oven but they turned out very dry.

So, for those of you who had dry results, consider reducing the baking time. Remember, a toothpick inserted into the center should yield moist crumbs and should not come out clean as it should for a cake. Also, make sure to not over-stir. Just stir until the flour in incorporated into the mixture.

Also remember that if you are a fan of cake brownies, this is NOT the brownie for you. There is no leavening agent in this recipe because they are supposed to be a heavier fudgy brownie.

I guess I could have over stirred the batter....don't know what happened.

I use a glass cake pan a lot...I just turn the oven down at least 25° lower than recipes call for.
