"Due to comments posted here, we have retested this recipe. We have found the ideal bake time to be 30-35 minutes and the recipe will be updated. Anything less than that, the brownies will not test done. The batter is thick and we found the brownies to be very fudgy and not dry at all.

"Just by reading this recipe, it is easy to see that these brownies will be dry. There is obviously an error in the cooking time. A 8x8" pan of brownies cooked at 325 degrees takes only 25-30 minutes. Cooking a 8x4" pan at 350 degrees for 40-45 minues is sure to ruin the brownies!"
