  1. Odlični su Marija. Ja volim moje da su ovako kompaktni, skoro vlažni. Volim seckane orahe onako uzduž da ubacim, ali do sada nisam uspela da kopiram one koje Hleb i Kifla prodaje na komad. Možda tebi uspe!

  2. WOW! They look fabulous and I love the idea of using the muscovado. I bet they add a wonderful flavour and chewiness. Just genius!

  3. These look so yummy! I’m going to have to see if I can find muscovado, if I can’t is it similar to brown sugar? I really want to make these!

    Also I want to tell you that finally our lives have finally come into some sembelance of normal although a lot has changed! However, I’ve now the time to actually keep up on my reader and I look forward to catching up here!

    • Hello Shelby!

      Yes, you can substitute muscovado with brown sugar. But, if you are able to find muscovado, make sure you get dark one for these brownies. Light muscovado is probably OK too and it’s more similar to brown sugar.

    • In my country we have an aisle in the supermarkets with all kinds of sugars. I found it there. I’ve also updated the post with the link to the one sold at Amazon.

  4. Hey :-)
    My name is Alexandra and I totally like your blog and your brilliant recipes.
    I didn´t try a lot of them myself yet, but I had to try these brownies after drooling over your pictures for a while.
    What can I say?
    They are perfect :-) Ok, I had to use brown sugar instead of muscovado, because I do not even know this kind of sugar nor do I have it at home.
    But still these brownies turn out to be the best ones I have ever made :-)
    Thanks for sharing this great recipe with us!

  5. Made these for my husband’s brithday. He was over the moon about them. I’ve posted on my blog, they were great! Hvala lijepa!

  6. I baked the brownies exactly as described in a 28 cm porcelain form for my colleagues. Consistency and taste were perfect. I can only recommend this recipe and will replace my old one! Next time I’ll try to replace the flour with powdered almonds – just to know. Thanks Israel for sending the link to Palachinka

    • Julia, thank you! I like the idea of powdered almonds, if you do try it out like that, please let me know how it was.

  7. Thank you, I have recently been looking for info about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered so far. But, what about the conclusion? Are you sure about the source?
