  1. Made these exactly by the recipe and, just like Christina, they turned out very dry. I think the mistake was putting it in a 9x13 pan, it should be made in a sheet cake pan. It didn't have brownie consistency. The cake was dense and dry, not very appealing. Also the frosting was WAY to thick for the brownie, will not be making this recipe again.
