Brownies are a mix-and-stir batter. You only need to mix or stir till the ingredients are just combined. Especially when adding flour into the batter, stir or fold just long enough until you don’t see flour specks or trails in the batter.
Brownies, unlike cakes, do not rise much at all during baking. So if you’d like your brownies to be taller, use a smaller baking tin or pan. I usually like to make them between an inch (2 cm) to 1 1/2 inches (3 cm) in height.
Oh yes, one more thing. If you’re like me, and patience is not always a virtue of mine, you might feel tempted to cut into that gorgeous slab of baked chocolatey goodness when it’s right out of the oven. Don’t!
Brownies typically form very thin, delicate, fragile crusts. On some, the crusts are thicker. These chocolate rum brownies have fairly fragile crusts.
So do wait, however agonising it will feel, till they are completely cooled. Then, slice into squares or bars. Trust me, you’ll get neater slices. Just take a look at where my impatience landed me.
So, here it is! A simple, quick and easy recipe for one of the best kinds of brownies chocolate rum brownies, that you can make any time, any where. Enjoy!
