Reviews for Cocoa Cake Brownies
"My husband asked me to make cakey brownies for his birthday. After much searching, found this recipe. Only made two changes - increase the cocoa to 2/3 cup and added 1 1/2 cups of mini chocolate chips. After all, if some chocolate is good then a lot more is even better!"
"Love these cake like brownies so much! They are perfect as is or with frosting or whipped cream."
"I thought these brownies were very dry as well. If not for the ice cream and fugde sauce we put on them, i would have ditched them in the trash."
"These were really dry, we were quite disappointed in them."
