We have a lot of church socials and I'm always looking for something new and different to prepare. These brownies, drizzled with a sweet maple sauce, are a sure hit…with or without the ice cream. —Pat Parker, Chester, South Carolina

"Good, but this is really more of a cake than a brownie. I was looking forward to something gooey and brownie-like and got a cake. It is good, but not what I was looking for."
