Brownie Aficionados -- experience with BAKED brownies?

maxie | May 5, 2011 06:01 PM

I recently baked the brownies from BAKED: New Frontiers in Baking. The recipe has been acclaimed by ATK, Martha Stewart, and Oprah. I haven't seen it mentioned in the many brownie postings here, so I'm wondering if anyone else has experience with it.

Admittedly, I over baked them. I should have gone by smell, rather than the timer, so they were drier than they should have been. I can't taste them myself, and had to rely on the comments of a group whose palates I'm unfamiliar with. One said they were too sweet. One said they were more like a cake than a brownie (probably due to over baking and pan size), and wanted them topped with whipped cream. Others were just happy to being eating non-pre-packaged food. I served them in tiny bite size squares.

So -- how does this recipe stack up against your go-to recipe?
