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 read all the reviews before I made these, figured with the five eggs and cup of oil there was no way they could be dry, but they were. I followed the recipe exactly, and did not over-bake them. The recipe makes too much for just the two of us, so I had planned on sharing with the neighbors, but my other half nixed that idea. They are no better the second day. I split the pan into five sections, and froze four of them. We'll eat them, but in small doses. Back to my Ghirardelli box mix I guess."

"Delicious dessert, perfect for any potluck or any time you need an office treat! (Or if you just want to treat yourself!) Very easy to make and better than buying the mix. I use mini chocolate chips instead of full size for this recipe and they still turn out great. Just be careful to not over bake!"

"I have been making this recipe for decades now. It is soft and fudge-y if you don't over-bake it. I do not use Canola oil since it is questionable as to health benefits. I use soybean oil or peanut oil. Maybe it's all the same, but it does turn out the same regardless. Very, very good and very, very easy. I like that there isn't frosting but still tastes great."

"I tried this recipe a few months ago and I love it! I use grape seed oil and add walnuts. I've also used peanut butter chips or peanut butter on the top. A crowd pleaser for sure."

"Very good, very easy. I read the reviews and it is funny how to some say these are the best and a few others say they are the worst. Maybe some people can't bake. I put espresso choc. chips on top and I thought they were great."

"I have made these twice now, these are the best brownies and they are so moist stay that way for a days if they last that long. I added on my second batch 1 c chopped walnuts, just because we love walnuts and they were fabulous. This is my new brownie recipe, thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!"
