"I made these twice. The first time I baked them for 35 minutes and they turned out slightly underbaked and extremely delicious. The second time I baked them for maybe 38 minutes (still well within range!) and they turned out much thicker, drier, and rather like a sub-par cakey brownie. I was really disappointed and can't imagine what I did wrong. All I can think is that the oven was too hot because I had just finished baking something else at 350 and had then turned it down to 325 for the brownies. I'll give these one more try and watch them closely during baking."
