Cacao Brownies

Missing Manila's Tsokolate's Tableya cake, I looked for cakes and brownies with 'tableya' or tableya cocoa rounds as main ingredient instead of the chocolate blocks sold in baking store. Searched via Google; decided to try Yummy's Tableya Brownies since it's a Philippine site, hoping they must be good enough when it comes to local finds. I hate mentioning 'negative' stuff but I followed the instructions, as well as religiously obeyed the measurements indicated: it was not impressive.

There should have been a disclaimer with regards to the texture and the 'stale' taste. I have to give the brownies to the neighbors and ignore the possibility of them thinking I'm the worst cook in town.
