Whether you like ‘em cakey or fudgy, bake the brownie of your dreams every single time by avoiding these common mistakes.
Using the wrong recipe for the kind of brownies
Some people prefer their brownies to be more cake-like, and some prefer them to be on the fudgier side. But each has different way of baking. For example, fudgier brownies would need a recipe that has higher chocolate and butter-to-dry ingredient ratio than cake-like ones
Not letting the chocolate cool after melting
When you’re melting chocolate for your brownies, make sure to let the hot melted chocolate cool before adding in to your mixture to avoid cooking your eggs. Make sure to also bring your eggs and butter to room to room temperature before combining them to get a smoother batter.
Going overboard with add-ins
Let chocolate be the star of the brownies. Don’t overload your recipe with too much add-ins like nuts, cream layers or peanut butter.
