What makes brownies fudgy?

If you want fudgy brownies, the only difference is that fudge brownies have more fat, so add more butter and chocolate if you want a more cake-like brownie to add more flour and baking powder, which will leave then the brownie.

The amount of sugar and eggs will not change. They are consistent, whether you are preparing a cake-like brownie or fudgy brownie.

What is the difference between fudgy brownies and cake brownies?

Cakey brownies to me, remind me of eating a piece of cake. They are light, moist, and airy, and you cut them with a knife. It is almost like eating a piece of cake.

Fudgy brownies are moist, dense, and gooey; they are almost like eating with a spoon. They are creamy and soft in the middle.

How To Store:

Suppose you do not eat the entire batch at one time. Cover them up with saran wrap or place them in an air-tight container. They should last between 2 to 5 days.

If you need to store them longer than 2 to 5 days, place them covered in the refrigerator.

How To Freeze:

They can be frozen if wrapped up for about 1 month. Just make sure they are tightly sealed. I usually wrap them in saran wrap, and they wrap them again with aluminum foil. I find that this makes them better as they thaw.

To eat, leave them either in the refrigerator or counter until they are thawed.

Pro Tips:

  • Use a great quality unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Air fry them until they are cooked through. I use a low temperature because I feel that although they take longer than the air fryer, they end up tasting better.
  • Do Not Overcook the brownies, and they need to be removed as soon as the ends start to separate from the edge of the pan. YOu want them cooked, but soft on the inside.
  • Let the brownies cool before slicing into them.  They end up with a chewier texture.
