Pin it button big

After our brownie recipe post today, a reader asked: I like my brownies more dense and fudgy. How can I modify this recipe to achieve that?

Well, here's the resource we turn to when we want our brownies to turn out just so: Chewy Cakey Fudgy Brownies, an article over at Taunton Press. They thoroughly define their terms - for instance, a chewy brownie is moist, but not quite as gooey as a fudgy one, and cakey brownies have a moist crumb and slightly fluffy interior.

After some really helpful tips on getting the results you want, they give recipes for each variety, with bonus recipes for Blondies and Chocolate Brownie Cookies thrown in. Check it out!
