Our entire family loves these brownies! I normally use coconut sugar and they turn out a slightly different consistency on the top but are still so moist and not too sweet. I have also made with normal sugar and they have the gorgeous cracked top and are lovely and so soft in the middle. My 10 year old son can make these on his own. Timing is perfect, I do 35 mins in our fan oven. Great for a dessert, soooo much nicer than anything you can buy in the shops and so quick to make!

Excellent recipe :) Had no cooking chocolate in the house so replaced it with around 100g of Nutella with a little less sugar in the mix and it worked just as well. I've also taken to lining the tin with a little cocoa powder instead of oil, stops it sticking just fine. Love these!

Why do they taste so horribly bitter? Anything that can be done to make them sweeter?

These brownies are far superior to the supermarket gluten free. I was doubtful that they would be an improvement on the shop bought ones, but believe me they are so good

Just like susan I have made these using the Wheat free Self Raising Flour. They are beautiful.. served them for a dinner party desert I added Baileys to the mixture gave them a lovely flavour served with vanilla ice cream - yum yum went down a treat with my non gluten free friends..

I have now made these several times, for a lazy dessert with ice cream, for snacking during the week, and this evening for sitting watching Dexter with my husband. They are great. I have passed the recipe on to a few people too. Brownies as they should be.

My husband adores these brownies. I do cheat a little and substitute some really good honey instead of half the sugar and they come out fabulous every time.

Ive made these brownies three times now using the gluten and wheat free Doves Self Raising flour and they are delicious! Even my daughter, who doesn't have to eat gluten free food, loves them. Recommended!
