Frequently Asked Questions
Actually, yes! You should always beat the eggs first when baking. And while we're talking eggs, it's best if they are room temperature, too. Cold eggs will firm up the mix and not give you the perfect texture you're looking for.
It depends on what you're after. If you want your brownies cake-like, overmixing isn't a big deal. But if you're after fudgy brownies, you shouldn't overmix as too much air will get into the batter.
Can't wait to have a warm brownie? Cut them with a plastic knife. Works every time!
Like fudgy, chewy brownies? You'll want to use a little more butter and a little more chocolate. Prefer the cakey version? You'll need more leavening. Some recipes call for oil and others call for butter. You can use either, but butter is better when you're looking for rise.
Always check your brownies early as oven temperatures vary and you don't want them to be dry. You can always bake them a little longer.
Store leftover brownies in an airtight container, wrap with plastic wrap, or place in a freezer bag.
