I put in 2 eggs for a thicker consistency. 3 eggs is cake-like, yes, but this recipe was intended to be that way...it's just preference. Also, I left out the nuts...doesn't matter what kind you use, if any, not worth criticizing a recipe over that. And 35-40 minutes is only an estimate....I'm sure your oven is accurate, just as much as the original cook. Great recipe - I recommend it

This is a tasty recipe and very moist, but not what I really look for in a brownie. First, it's a very light chocolate in color and taste. It's also very cakey, probably due to the three eggs. I wasn't crazy about the almonds. I love almonds, but felt that walnuts or pecans would work better here because of the texture of the cake. My recipe was completely baked in 30 minutes (my oven is accurate). I added chocolate frosting because I wanted more chocolate than this offered.
