Okay so last week I had this beaut little idea to make some brownie loaf’s with a surprise Terry’s Chocolate Orange segment inside. YUM! Chocolate Orange is amazing!
I finally get round to making them and all is going well until my oven timer goes off and I open the door thinking woooo brownies, look down and BOOM! There are these sad blocks of sunken chocolateyness. What on earth has happened here!?
Now if I was going to pretend like I did this on purpose I would call this bake.. Spooky Halloween Graves and maybe make sugar paste skeletons and pop them inside. But as I have learnt over the years things do go wrong and even though it can be very annoying it definitely does teach you a few things.
So what caused this catastrophe? I did a bit of research and found out that brownies can sink for a few reasons:
- The oven temperature is too high
- The tray is too high in the oven
- The mixture has been over mixed
