WOW -- These brownies are amazing! We are taking them to a holiday party tonight! I am 61 years old and have never succeeded in making brownies from a mix, so I gave up trying years ago. I never tried from scratch, but this recipe looked like fun and it is top-notch! They are NOT overly sweet and NOT overly gloppy -- the sponge is very light and the texture of the cocoanut/almond mixture really adds something special. I baked at 350 for 34 minutes and turned out of the pan immediately as directed -- I used a big cookie sheet to turn it out using the technique I saw on the Great British Baking Show. I used 70% organic cocoa bars, organic white sugar, vegan sweetened condensed oat milk (sweet!), ground almonds and shredded organic cocoanut. I also used vegan margarine BARS (Earth Balance). I used conventional, organic all-purpose white flour and conventional, organic large eggs. I converted the recipe to cups/teaspoons as needed using Google (note: put in EACH ingredient when you do a Google conversion, because it is not all the same!). It is super fun doing the layers and also swirling gently to mix in the pan. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this recipe. I can't believe I made something this beautiful on the first try!
