What others are saying
Laura Griffin says:
I'm addicted to these chocolate brownies. They were so simple to make in the pressure cooker and they turned out perfect. This is such a basic recipe that all pressure cooker owners should have in the kitchen repertoire. These are great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Greg Jones says:
I love this recipe like a fat kid loves cake! These brownies were delicious, moist, and chewy. I don't know that I will make brownies any other way. Much easier than oven baking them.
Cindy McKean-Logan says:
Hi, These sound amazing! I don't have a steamer basket, is there something else I can use instead?
Jazzy Brewer says:
These were really moist. Doesn’t make a huge batch, but good enough when you’re craving something sweet. I also added in some peanut butter, swirled in the batter.
Erin Hudson says:
I made my famous sweet potato and fudge brownies, and they were so delicious. Next time I may add a cherry topping.
Patricia H says:
I’ve made the recipe twice so I must like them well enough. It’s just different that the brownies are so small and mine don’t rise very high. I cut them in teeny squares which looks odd. The recipe produces a very small quantity. I did have to get used to the steamed consistency as opposed to brownies baked in the oven also.
Heath Holley says:
I don’t mean to be a wet blanket here but, these are disgusting. The consistency is so strange; they just have a rubbery consistency. 👎🏻
Brandie Dubay says:
Consistency was very strange. My kids enjoyed them, but they eat pretty much anything. Probably won’t ever make again.
Vergaline Stansberry says:
Quick and easy, but not my favorites. I can't get with the texture. Guess I'm just used to more "cake" like brownies. Don't think I'll make them again.
Zors Dee says:
Yuck! Disgusting!!! I don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything so gross in my life.
