    Can nuts be omitted from this recipe?

  • Alicia Jordan says:

    I tried to print off this recipe and all that I got was page and pages of pictures of recipes. What a waste of expensive ink.

    • Hi Alicia, We’re sorry to hear that. We just printed the recipe and it worked just fine….did you use the “print” tab that’s featured at the top of the recipe? If you use that, it will print on 1 page and will also allow you to adjust the font size.

    • Anna says:

      I also had this problem. It printed all the pictures from the side bar. And I did press the print button.

  • JoAnn says:

    I have made these brownies for a number of years and have not been disappointed. I even have made them substituting with GF flour. Always turn out and are eaten very quickly.

  • Anna says:

    My mother and I have been making these brownies for years in Canada. Since I moved to Texas I cannot get this recipes to work. I’ve tried and tried and they never turn out (they end up gummy and never really set). Even my mother tried making them at my home to see if I was doing something wrong and even her’s didn’t work.

    Any suggestions for what the issues might be? Elevation is the same in both places.

    • Best of Bridge Editors says:

      Hi Anna, glad to hear these have been a favorite. It’s possible that the flour you are using in Texas is different from the Canadian flour you used in the past. Canadian flour is generally higher in protein, making it “stronger”, whereas many of the American flours are lower in protein, making them “softer” and they do not absorb liquid the same way.
