Pour the batter in the greased and floured cake pan. Bake 30-40 minutes. Check with a toothpick to see, if it is done. Bake a few minutes more if required.  Remove from oven and allow it to cool in the pan for a few minutes. Place brownie on a wire rack and let it cool completely. You can finish with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream to jazz up this brownie hero. Who could resist it?
