I've been searching for a good brownie recipe forever! I'll definitely have to try both of these out.

I just made #1... I've never been the best baker, but they turned out all right. They seemed a little too gooey in the middle and, even though I greased the dish, they still want to stick. I baked them for the full 30 minutes and, since it didn't look to cracky on top, I left them in for another 3 minutes. The top seemed to be starting to develop black spots, so I took them out.

Good feedback Z. I am getting a lot of gooey about #1. I am wondering if it is too gooey.

Sugar and Spice, glad it went over well, make sure you post to let me know how #2 goes.

I sure appreciate all of you helping me with this and letting me know what it is you like and don't like about the recipes.

Just finished cooling a pan of Brownie #1. I used Hershey's dark choc cocoa. They are very good!

When this pan is finished (could even be later tonight after HH gets home), we'll try Brownie #2.

Alix,
yes, brownie #1 is gooey in the middle, but it hold together well and is not a sticky gooey that stays on your hands if eaten with your fingers..I loved them, guess it's because for me most brownies are dry..I loved these, so did the kids.

Our pan of #1 doesn't seem gooey at all - dense and moist, yes, but not particularly gooey.

I love gooey. wonder what we did wrong. Oops, just checked the recipe again and we used a cup of cocoa with the flour instead of more chips (not enough chips). D'ya spose that was it?

Alix - I started out by making #1 the way you recommmended - cocoa instead of chips and 1 c white sugar and 1 c brown - things got rushed - I forgot to add the 1 c of chips - but didn't realize it until a week later when I made the recipe again - anyways, my family thought it was a bit too cocoa-y. They were good but not in a brownie way - they reminded me of a fancy cake you would get in an upscale restaurant.

Yesterday I made #1 again - this time with chocolate chips instead of cocoa and more white sugar than brown (1-1/2 c white and 1/2 c brown) - the result: Yum! They were gooey - just like we like 'em - but not too gooey! I was surprised how light in color they were. Very good.

I haven't made #2 yet - I chose #1 because we are more gooey brownie fans than cake brownie fans.

Thanks so much for sharing these recipes. I hope everyone's input helps you achieve your goals!

Better late than never- I made #2 today, we used white choc chips and some walnuts in them too and they were beautiful!! I had to cook them for more than 30 minutes but my oven is hopeless. I love the crusty edges and then the gooey middle and they were so easy to make.

I loved Brownie #1 but I also loved Browner #2 - since I am such an chocoholic I will have to try them both.

Thanks
