Tips and Tricks for Making This Best and Easiest Brownies Recipe:
- Before you start mixing the dry ingredients, it is very important to sift them first. A delicious brownie doesn’t have lumps of flour or baking powder in it 🙂
- Take your brownie to the next level! After cooling them completely, frost it with your favorite chocolate frosting or if you love cream cheese frosting, feel free to add some on top! Yum!
- Always use a nonstick baking pan or baking dish. If you don’t have those, place parchment paper on your baking pans before pouring in the brownie batter. You can also use a nonstick cooking spray to prevent your brownies from sticking to the pan after baking.
- To know if the brownie is baked to perfection, stick in a toothpick and if it comes out clean, then it’s ready to be taken out from the oven.
