Tips to Make Best Homemade Chocolate Brownies

  • Do not over bake your brownies. Unlike cake, brownies do not have a springy center. So when the center is set and top of your brownie begins to crack, pull it out of the oven.
  • Beat the eggs for a good minute or two. 
  • Add the measurement of the flour correctly. Use a scale to measure the flour to make the best brownie at home.
  • If you don’t have an eight by eight-inch pan then you can use foil to create one or two walls for a small baking dish. You can line it with parchment and you can make the brownies without any fuzz.
  • For extra thick brownies bake your brownies in 9*9 inch square baking dish. Bake the brownies for 30-35 minutes.
