"The consistency of this brownie is just like a regular fudge brownie. It's very important to not overbake. BUT, it is not sweet at all. It needs Splenda, sugar, sweetened applesauce or something to make it sweeter. I will make again with changes."
"A good basic recipe with lots of room to make them your own way. I substituted vanilla extract for all of the anise and added mini chocolate chips. I refrigerated the dough for about 45 minutes to make the dough easier to handle. Plan on dipping ends in chocolate.
"You can make the coffee cake into muffins, or even in a 9x13 pan. Just check the muffins after about 15 minutes and the 9x13 after about 30 minutes. Just estimates, so if it looks done, test!
Also, most coffee cakes do not contain coffee as an ingredient. You eat them while having coffee!
