    Very easy to make, very rich (I would recommend cutting it into small squares). Lovely and moist. Recipe makes a lot of brownies, so it's good for a large gathering.  -  28 Jul 2012


    I debated between 3 and 4 stars, and went for the higher rating because the product is good. However, this is NOT a brownie. This is a very dense cake. I doubled the chocolate at other's suggestion and felt the chocolate-ness of it was perfect. I also substituted one cup of brown sugar for one of the cups of white sugar. As the other Texas Brownie (cake) suggests cinnamon, I a tsp of cinnamon to this recipe. I also used the frosting recipe from Texas Brownies I. I am very happy with the finished product but again must stress that this is not a Brownie - it is a moist dense chocolate cake.  -  10 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
