Here are simple tips for making soft and chewy brownies at home:
1. Don’t overmix the batter
One of the worst things you can do to your brownie batter is overmix it. By doing so, air is incorporated into it and makes it light and fluffy. And we don’t want that. The denser the brownie batter, the fluffier your brownies will be.
2.Use the correct size tin
Using a pan that is too small will not allow the batter to spread evenly. On the other hand, using a box that is too big would spread it out in a thin layer. This can result in brownies that are too dry and mushy as they will cook quickly.
3.Use the correct type of tin
This step is often overlooked but makes a huge difference in ensuring your brownies turn out moist. It is better to use light-colored metal boxes rather than dark ones. Using a dark pan can speed up the baking process and result in overcooked brownies.
4. Don’t overcook them
After you put your brownies in the oven, be sure to check them after 15-20 minutes. Gently squeeze them in the center or use a toothpick to see how moist the dough is. If it’s firm enough, it’s time to take them out! It’s better to have an undercooked brownie than an overcooked one.
So next time you’re baking brownies at home, keep these tips in mind!
