Commonly Asked Questions

What makes brownies fudgy?

Fudgy brownies achieve their irresistible texture through a combination of factors. A higher fat content, such as butter or oil, adds moisture and creates a dense consistency.

Using less flour and more chocolate enhances richness and indulgence. More eggs or a higher ratio of yolks contribute moisture and structure.

Baking at a slightly lower temperature for a shorter time also prevents over-drying and helps maintain that coveted fudgy center.

How long do these brownies keep?

They can easily stay good for 3-4 days in an airtight container but never fear, they won’t last that long!
