Since you "dump" all the ingredients together for these brownies, they take very little time to prepare. There's no mistaking the homemade goodness of a freshly baked batch—they are rich and fudgy! —Diane Heier, Harwood, North Dakota

"I got this recipe originally from the Taste of Home magazine a few years ago. I love it and so does everyone that eats the ones I make. Of course, us cooks all have our own little 'touches' and 'substitutes' we use, as I do with this recipe. That's OK too.

I highly recommend anyone to use this recipe.
They are oh, so good."

"I was reluctant to try this recipe as it calls for canola oil instead of butter. I did make them, and they turned out to be very good. I took them to serve after a function, and they were all eaten. I did reduce the eggs to 4 instead of 5 as another reviewer suggested. A good brownie recipe ... and quick too."

"Easy to make, but not as fudgy as I expected."

"Just made these this evening. They are very good. They have a cake/fudgy consistency. I started checking them at 25 minutes for doneness. My oven took about 28 minutes - the toothpick still had some moist crumbs on it. The only change I made was I used 4 eggs, because that was all I had. They still turned out great. Would make them again. Nice simple recipe with great results. Just don't over bake them."

"The secret to baking any brownie recipe is to not bake too long! My recipe was perfect at 25 minutes, not 30. Always check your recipe at least 10 minutes before recipe is supposed to be done. I am an experienced baker of five decades and learned this trick at my Grandmother's knee. This same advice holds true for all baking but brownies, in particular, come out very dry if baked just five minutes more than needed."
