Brownie Help

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have made brownies from a mix but I would like to make them from scratch. I made 2 batches in the past 2 days and I'm not doing too well. I am determined to make a good brownie. They taste good but they are too soggy in the middle. I try to cook them longer but it isn't working. I will not give up until I can make a good brownie from scratch. Can anyone help me?

I can't help you yet, but I am working on that too, along with chocolate chip cookies and Peanut butter cookies. I have thrown away so many batches of PB cookies it is sickening. Those flourless recipes are NASTY.

I will let you know if/when I come up with something...

I'll be watching to see what you all come up with! When I tried to make brownies fron scratch, they came out dry. I tried 2 different recipes and they both were dry. I don't think I overbaked them because they were not hard around the edges or anything.

Guys - I make sweet stuff from scratch now all the time - one of the best brownie recipes I've found is on this website - go to the recipes section - it's the chocolate traditional brownies, i think there's like cornstarch in them, eggs, etc. i add 1 tbsp. of potato flour to the recipe as well as a handful or two of nestle choc. chips and they just turn out great. we all think they taste like "normal" brownies.
