Brownies are like your best friends; your days get better when you have had a bite.
There are different ways one can make brownies. Sometimes, you are so present during the task at hand that you do not forget a single of the ingredients used. But the rest of the time, you might miss a few things, like ample cocoa powder or some sugar.
Box mixes are your best bet for situations like these. However, making brownies moist and chewy is something you have to manage on your own, no matter what ingredients you use.
In this blog, we will talk you through some tips you can use to make your brownies the moistest and the chewiest!
Overmixing the batter
After adding the egg, water, and oil to the brownie’s ingredients in a bowl, try not to overmix the batter because that will result in rock-hard brownies. You want to keep them moist, so you will need to keep the batter dense. Another thing while putting batters in, always put dry ingredients in your bowl, on the base, that is, and all the wet ingredients go on top.
Pan sizes matter a lot when making brownies.
You can afford a bigger pan but not a smaller one. At the same time, you cannot go for a too-big pan as it will become difficult to manage. Smaller pans mean thicker batters, and your brownies will end being all clumpy and under-cooked. While a too-big pan will let the batter spread out too much, making your brownies, well, not so brownies.
Pick your pansize according to your needs.
You may not know this, but the pan material can also impact the quality of your brownies.
You want them moist and chewy? Try avoiding metal pans that are heavy and dark. These cook up the batter too fast, and you will be serving dried-out brownies to your loved ones that way. Once you have the pan type nailed down, you will need to perfect the spreading of the batter across the surface evenly. That is sure to keep your brownies soft and moist. And with moist comes chewy.
All brownies, be it boxed or homemix, need to be baked at a specific temperature. Even a few degrees away from the targeted number can mean a huge difference between brownies done wrong and brownies done right. Follow the procedure at the back of the box for boxed brownies. In case of a home mix, pick your temperature as per your urgency. Make sure the brownies reach that soft, dark brown color – that is when you need to take them out.
Playing with the Ingredients
Try reducing the amount of egg input into the batter. This tends to make brownies more dense and chewy. Try making them without eggs for a change – just to experiment, of course. Also, coaxing your brownies to bake nice can be done by avoiding the egg white. Egg yolks are known to give brownies the little kick they need to be rich in their moistness; if there is no egg white, your job becomes easier. One last thing, use melted butter!
That was it for our simple ways to make brownies moist and chewy. Give these tips a try, and happy brownie-making!
