    I did it for breakfast today. I put in a little more milk than mentioned cos the mix was too dry.
    The result came out good, but the cocoa flavour made it a little bitter.
    Overall it was good. A little icecream at home would have helped :p

    Thanks for the recipe though :D

    Thanks for the easy and fantastic recipe. I have craving for brownies and I am making this almost everyday, but without the ice cream. The first time I made it, it turned out a little bitter. So I added more milk and it tasted great…not bitter anymore. Love it.

    That’s odd. For us, it taste just right. Maybe because we normally like dark chocolate which is a little bit more bitter than milk chocolate. Add more sugar?

    Glad you enjoyed the recipes. We’ve tried using olive oil but it didn’t turn out tasty. Try mid temperature. Good luck!
