FUN FACTS ABOUT BROWNIES

  1. There are three myths about the creation of brownies. #1, a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. #2, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And #3 and most popular, a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to service these "flattened" cakes to them.
  2. The classic brownie consists of only butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs and flour. Unsweetened chocolate is normally used so more sugar is required to balance the bitterness.
  3. Fudgy brownies have minimum flour and no baking powder at all. Melting the butter rather than creaming it will the sugar yields a denser, fudgier outcome.
  4. Cakelike brownies contain less butter and more flour than fudgy brownies as well as a little baking powder. The softened butter is creamed with the sugar rather than melted with the chocolate. Creaming incorporates air into the mixture which causes the brownies to rise higher.
  5. Chewy Brownies get their chewyness from adding in extra egg and a combination of different chocolates (semi-sweet and unsweetened). Put the two together with cocoa powder and the result is a rich, chewy brownie.
  6. Blondie brownies are made with brown sugar, butter and eggs, but no chocolate and typically have a cake like texture.
  7. Brownies are considered a "comfort food" where, when eaten, traditionally provides a nostalgic or sometimes sentimental feeling to the person eating it.
  8. Brownies have their own holiday! National Brownie Day is on December 8th this year.

Tips to make the perfect brownie

Follow these tips for...

1. Even-Textured Brownies

If you want to make brownies with an even texture, use the correct sized pan stated in the recipe. If you use a different pan, the brownies will form a different texture.

2. Moist and Chewy Brownies

If you over-bake your brownies, they will become dry. Make sure to follow the recommended baking time listed in the recipe to enjoy moist and chewy brownies.

3. Mixing Your Brownies

For better results, it is suggested to hand-mix your brownies and avoid using an electric mixer.

4. Easy Cleanup

To minimize the amount of clean up after making your brownies, line your pan with aluminum foil. Once the brownies have cooled, they will lift straight out of the pan, which makes it easier to cut into uniform squares.

5. Avoid Crumbly Brownies

Not only are crumbly brownies messy, but they also lessen the overall appearance of a fresh plate. To prevent crumbling, completely cool your brownies before cutting into squares.

6. Smooth Sides

To make brownie bars with smooth sides, make sure your treats have thoroughly cooled before cutting with a plastic knife.

7. Brownie Toppings

To add a little something extra to your brownies, there are many different toppings to consider. For starters, you can sprinkle powdered sugar on unfrosted brownie bars. Chocolate curls on top of frosted bars add a hint of elegance. Other toppings for brownies include mini chocolate chips, nuts, and colorful sprinkles for kids.

8. White Chocolate Brownies

If you’d like to make decadent brownies for your next get-together, combine 1/3 cup of coarsely chopped white chocolate and two teaspoons of vegetable shortening in a small, heavy saucepan. Melt the ingredients over low heat – making sure to constantly stir. Drizzle over your brownies.

9. Blonde Brownies

Use brown sugar and no chocolate to create a ‘blondie.’

10. A la Mode Brownies

A popular dessert offered at restaurants is brownie a la mode, which means that your treat is warmed and served with ice cream topped with whipped cream.
