Brownie Recipes and Pan Size
Be sure to use the right size pan. If the size is
off, the depth of the batter will change and the brownies will require a
different baking time.
Be sure to grease and flour the pan or the brownies are apt to stick to the pan.
Lining the pan with foil first makes it easy to get the brownies out of the pan.
Smooth the foil out the best you can. Make sure to grease the foil also. If you
make the foil long enough you can use it for handles to help remove the brownies
from the pan.
