Peanut Butter Brownie Tips
Why are my brownies chewy?
In order to check for chewy brownies, stick a toothpick into them while they're in the oven—if you see moist crumbs, then you’ve likely achieved a chewy texture. If you want your brownies to be cakier, add a few pinches of flour, baking soda and baking powder to the batter. (Check out our brownie-baking guide
for more hints and tips.)
How can I make my brownies more moist?
If you’re going for moist, chewy or fudgy brownies, then you can add more fat—such as butter or chocolate—to the recipe. You can also try adding an additional egg or follow our recipe for the Ultimate Fudgy Brownies.
How can you tell when brownies are done?
When brownies are done, they should be set and slightly browned. To check your brownies' doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the pan; if it comes out clean, they’re ready for you to take them out of the oven. (Overcooked brownies are a common baking problem
. When in doubt, remove them from the oven sooner rather than later—the brownies will continue cooking as they cool.) Research contributed by Mark Hagen, Taste of Home Executive Editor
