You can easily double this recipe to make more servings.
BAKING SODA NOTE: If you do add the baking soda, you may notice that the sides of the pan puff up a bit more however the texture is a bit better.  
The eggs also give that perfect shiny top to your brownies. Make sure you whisk vigorously and really get it going! Don’t skimp on this!
Once the flour is added to your brownie mix, gluten immediately begins to develop. The more you mix or overmix, the more your brownies will toughen and turn into a texture you don’t want!
The baking time is slightly less than the cakey brownie. Under baking keeps the brownies soft and chewy.
