Hi Rose and all, Tried baking your Cocoa Brownies from Rose’s Christmas Cookies book today.  The center of the brownies rise up higher and cracked, and could not bake evenly.  The center was baked only after 55 mins (on 160C).  By the time the center of the brownies is baked, the sides are over baked.  Would you/anyone please help to provide some suggestions?

Just that it is not just moist but still quite runny when I tested the center.  Does it usually rise & crack in the middle?

Thanks for all the warm responses smile  The recipe indeed looks really simple and so I will definitely try again.  The cake pan is 8x8 square greyish non-stick pan. 

Charles, I didn’t use any bake-even stripe because the recipe did not call for it.  But it does look like the sides are baked faster.  So I plan to change it to the light silver pan when I bake again.

Julie, did u adjusted it much lower to 185 F and for how long would it then take to bake?  The temperature that I use is 160C (recipe stated 325F).
