Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until firm around the edges, crackled on the top and the middle has just begun to set. Remove from the oven and let cool until you’re ready to serve.

Slice and serve! Add a dollop of ice cream, if you desire, or a generous drizzle of chocolate fudge sauce. The brookie is best eaten warm but will keep for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
