8 mistakes to avoid while making brownies at home

As a treat, brownie offers a symphony of chocolatey delight that captivates the senses. Each bite is an escape into a realm where fudgy interiors meet delicately crisp edges, creating a perfect balance of textures. Whether enjoyed warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or savoured solo, the brownie stands as a timeless confectionery masterpiece, turning moments of indulgence into sweet memories that linger on the palate and in the heart.

But, making brownie at home, requires a lot of hard work.

There are several mistakes one can make while making brownie, which can make it either too hard or too soft.
From ingredient mismanagement to mastering the fine line between gooey and undercooked, here are a few tips that can help elevate your brownie game.
1. Keep the batter ratio correct
While making brownies, keep the batter right, use equal parts of butter, sugar, flour and adequate amount of eggs for brownies. If you keep the ratio of these four main ingredients right, the brownie will be perfect.

2. Amount of butter and chocolate

The right amount of butter and chocolate is very important for making brownies. Too much butter and too little chocolate can spoil the texture of the brownie.

3. Choose the right sugar

Always have white and granulated sugar for making brownies. White sugar adds sweetness and flavour, while brown sugar and jaggery reduce the flavour and add moisture to the brownie.

4. Use eggs

Eggs are used to set the brownie batter. More eggs make the brownies cakey, while less eggs make the brownies smooth and perfect. Use room-temperature eggs for better mixing of the batter.

5. Do not use too much flour

Do not use flour to make brownies. Use flour and baking soda in the dough, this will make the brownie soft and spongy.
6. Pay attention to the temperature while baking
For a perfect brownie, not only the batter but also the baking temperature is important, keep it at 350-175 degrees Celsius.

7. Baking time

For stickier brownies, bake the brownies for less time and also reduce the amount of eggs. For cake-like brownies, increase the baking time and increase the amount of eggs.
8. Pan selection
Choosing the right pan is important for making brownies. A larger pan will make thin brownies, while a smaller pan will make thick and dense brownies. If you want, you can also make brownies in a mold or tray.
