Generally, I'll make a double recipe of these brownies—they go so fast no matter where I take them! I've baked them for family dinners and church suppers, and never had any left over. They're very easy besides plus both keep and freeze well. I've been cooking since I was 10. My husband is retired, and we have four grown children.

"These brownies are definitely a winner at our house and everyone I've made them really enjoys them. You can find Maple Flavoring at Whole Foods Market. I double the recipe & bake in a large cookie sheet with parchment paper on the bottom."

"I will probably make this again, but as a cake instead of brownies. It would be really good with caramel frosting, but it is way too cakey for my taste by itself."

"I entered these in our local county fair and took home third place. I was excited, this was the first time I had ever enter the food section. I was the only guy who entered but there were several entries in this category. I think if the judges had tasted them I might have taken home first. I will be making these again!"

"I saw this receipe yesterday and made it last night. I loved it. My husband thought it could use more maple flavoring, so the next time I make it, and I will make it again, I will add a little more maple flavoring."
