I made milk chocolate brownie today, intended for a 9x9 inch pan, but in a 8x8 inch pan. Although I have made these brownies before and they were perfect but did not know what went wrong today. The recipe requires melting milk chocolate and butter together in double pan. Maybe I mixed hot chocolate mixture in the rest of the ingredients. Dont know what went wrong. Can you tell why the brownie texture was hard and chewy like candy?
The recipe calls for melting 1/2 cup butter and 4oz chocolate indirectly. Mixing up 3/4 cup sugar 2 eggs, vanilla and then pour in chocolate mixture when it cools down. One thing I did different was that I did not let the milk chocolate and butter to cool down properly. Then blending in dry ingredients. And remaining 4oz milk chocolate in the mixture. Secondly this time I didn't put the batter immediately in the oven. I had some work so it took me ten or more minutes. The cake was very crunchy. I usually use 8 by 8 circular pan but this time I used a larger square pan
