This was my first attempt at "light" brownies and it did not go well. As others have stated, the mixture was so dry, I had to add extra milk just to get it to spread in the pan. The result was a very dry brownie. I steeped a chai tea bag in the milk and that worked well. The chai taste was noticeable in the end result. The only reason I gave this 2 stars rather than 1 is because I might try the chai idea in a different brownie recipe. It's a good idea.

I made these as directed except that I cut the white sugar down to 3/4 cup and the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup. Those changes seem fine, however, like everyone else.....the final product is too dry. I love chocolate, but I'm not really interested in finishing this pan. I like the idea and the flavor and hope I can find another way to create this dessert. Wish I had read the reviews before I made this out of a Cooking Light Annual Cookbook.

I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out delicious. Very easy to whip up and a nice treat to share.

I live in denver, so hi-altitude cooking makes normal brownies gooie in the middle I didn't taste the chai- but i didn't have cardamom pots and used dry spice. I also had trouble with the sieve action.. I had to add an additional 1-3 tablespoons of milk to make the mix pliable enough to go in the 8X8 pan (who has a 9X9) ugh! I also reduced the cooking time to 23 which might have been better at 25.. I would not cook these again due to the lack of flavor.. wish the other "missing reviews: were here before i made these.

I had the same problem, although I used egg replacer instead of the eggs. The end mixture was way too dry, so I had about 2 tablespoons of orange juice to get the right consistency. That definitely added a nice citrus twist to the chai chocolate taste.
