The Super-Simple Method for Perfectly Cut Brownies Every Single Time
What’s more satisfying than a freshly made batch of gooey-in-the-center, crisp-on-the-edges brownies? When said brownies are perfectly cut, of course. Sadly, for me, that pairing is few and far between. When I make brownies, I usually don’t want to wait to take the first bite — so I cut ‘em right when they come out of the oven, which results in a big, fudgy mess (arguably the best kind of mess, but still).
Here’s what to do when you’re ready to cut your brownies: Get the sharpest knife you have, and rinse it under hot water. Do one cut, and you’ll notice brownie on your knife — no big deal. Go back to the sink and rinse, then wipe the knife with a clean sponge or paper towel, and cut the next line on the brownies. Keep rinsing and cleaning the knife before every time you cut, and you should end up with perfect squares! Convenient? I think so!
