How could I make this brownie more Fudge like and less Cake like?

Hi there! The Test Kitchen has not made this recipe with one less egg, which is what we would normally suggest to create a more fudge-like brownie. In this case, we believe that baking the brownies for 5 less minutes than the suggested baking time, or after a toothpick inserted in the center comes out fudgy/wet. Enjoy!

Love cherry cola. This would be such a fun, unexpected brownie recipe!

I added 1/2 teaspoon almond extract to the icing. It is addicting!! Loved by all.

Would it be possible to use cherry flavored cola soda?

Try duncan hines. You can make the cake or brownie.

I will definitely make again, but I will use a different brownie mix next time. I used Betty' Crockers, Fudge Brownie mix and the texture came out more like a cake than brownie. All in all, it was very easy to prepare and the frosting is the best!

That should be because of the liquid called for. This recipe (which I just saved to my "recipe box) has too little oil and much too much liquid for a brownie texture.
