I love my brownie recipe, and was pretty biased going in to this tasting. I am happy to report that Betty surprised me.
As you can see from the picture (the top right corner is where the focus was, apparently), the brownies met the appearance factor with a nice crinkly top.
This brownie falls right in the middle of the cakey/fudgey spectrum. You cannot label it either way, which is about where I like mine (in the middle to slightly fudgey). Unlike the cookies (but like the yellow cake), there was no gritty texture at all.
I don’t know if you can get a sugar high, but you can definitely get a chocolate fix from these brownies. They do not taste really sweet, but powerfully chocolatey (which I really liked), almost like a dark chocolate. My little brother, Corey, said they had a “cocoa flavor, not a milk chocolate flavor.”
Corey also said “they taste like regular brownies.” And isn’t that what we want?
Way to go, Betty Crocker!
