Also question is, why do my brownies fall apart?
When you beat the eggs and butter you incorporate airinto them, and the flour stabilizes the air bubbles. But if toomuch air is in the mixture for the amount of flour, thebrownies "over-expand" as they bake, but collapse, or cavein, as they cool and the unstable air bubbles deflate.
Also, why do my brownies never cook in the middle? A common problem when baking brownies is that theouter edges get too dark before the middle of the panis done. To correct this problem, turn the heat down by 25degrees, especially if you're using glass or dark aluminum pans.Check the brownies frequently so you don't dry them out byovercooking.
Similarly, you may ask, how long should brownies cool before cutting?
Let the brownies cool completely, about 30minutes, in the pan before slicing into them.
Are brownies supposed to be gooey in the middle?
Brownies should be removed from the oven beforethe centre is fully cooked, as the brownies will continue toset as they cool and this gives the brownie its softtexture. You do not want the brownies to be raw in thecentre when you remove them from the oven, but they should beslightly undercooked.
