This time, we’re gonna try a very famous and delicious treat: the Brownie.

chocolate brownie (commonly referred to as simply brownie) is a square, baked, chocolate dessert. It comes in a variety of forms and may be either fudgy or cakey, depending on its density. It may include nuts, frosting, cream cheese, chocolate chips, or other ingredients. The brownie was developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century.

Some myths state that a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to some biscuits, or was making a cake but didn’t have enough flour; still others say that a housewife in Bangor, Maine, forgot to add baking powder to her chocolate cake. But most evidence points to one source: Chefs at Chicago’s Palmer House Hotel, who created the tasty treat for the World Columbian Exposition of 1893.

Here are some tips to have the best brownies :

  • Once you add your dry ingredients to your batter, gently fold them together. Do NOT overbeat them since it will toughen your baked goods.
  • For a fudgy Brownie, don’t add baking soda (or baking powder). Leavening agents make for more of a cakey texture! In our recipe, we’ve added a tiny portion of baking soda to have the perfect texture between fudgy and cakey.
  • Be careful not to over bake them. Our recipe was perfect at exactly 20 minutes in an 8×8 inch pan. You know when your brownies are perfectly cooked when they’re firm around the edges but they’re still soft to the touch in the middle.
  • You can combine all varieties of nuts, chocolate, dried fruit, … like walnuts, peanuts, almonds, pecans, … Chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, shredded coconut, dried cranberries, dried raisins, …
  • After baking, let the brownie cool at room temperature for best results.
  • Store at room temperature for 3 days but they’ll keep in an airtight container for a good two weeks and in the freezer for up to a month.
