Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 25-27 minutes or till the top springs up lightly when touched. Remove and let the pan cool for about 10 mins
Gently turn out the brownie onto a wire rack and cool completely before cutting it into 16 equal pieces. Serve with chocolate or coffee ice cream.
