How to Make Brownies More Moist

Use fewer eggs

Using fewer eggs will make your brownies soft, moist, and delicious. If your recipe calls for two eggs, try using just one.

Use melted butter

Instead of using oil, use the same amount of melted butter instead. It will soften and moisten the brownie to another level. You may never bake brownies with oil again after trying this.

Under bake

Try baking your brownies 5 to 10 minutes less than the suggested baking time. Your brownies will still harden when they cool but will be nice and moist!

Use the right pan

Use a lightweight pan for better and moister results, such as glass or a light metal pan. Heavyweight pans will cook the brownies much faster causing them to be less moist. Be sure to evenly spread the batter in the pan as that will help to produce moist and chewy brownies.

Don’t over mix

Avoid over mixing the batter because it will increase the air in the mixture, which will make your brownies cakier instead of softer and moist.

Baking temperature

Temperature plays a significant role in baking either moist or dry brownies. 350 degrees Fahrenheit is usually the best temperature to bake brownies.  Anything higher than that often results in over-baked, dry brownies. Temperatures lower than 350 degrees Fahrenheit tend to result in hard brownies.

Adding other ingredients

Adding an extra ingredient to brownies usually makes them extra moist and delicious. Try adding cocoa powder, chocolate, marshmallows, milk, fruits, chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, and dried fruits. The sky is truly the limit here.

Use milk
