Tips for baking Chocolate Brownie
Use good quality chocolate - The taste of your brownies will largely depend on the quality of chocolate you use. Choose high-quality chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids to give your brownies a rich, intense flavour.
Use room temperature eggs - When making brownies, it's important to use room temperature eggs as they will mix more easily into the batter and help create a lighter, fluffier texture.
Don't overmix the batter - Overmixing the batter can result in tough, dense brownies. Mix the ingredients until just combined, and avoid overmixing.
Line your baking tin - To make it easier to remove the brownies from the baking tin, line it with parchment paper before pouring in the batter.
Add your own twist - While this recipe is delicious as is, feel free to add your own twist by mixing in chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruit to the batter.
Let the brownies cool completely - It can be tempting to dig into the brownies as soon as they come out of the oven, but it's important to let them cool completely before cutting and serving. This will help the brownies set properly and prevent them from crumbling.
Store properly - Once cooled, store your brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze the brownies for up to 2 months, just be sure to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap before freezing.
