Do you know a failproof brownie recipe? Please share it here. I've tried lots of different recipes but they either turn out burnt or undercooked. I also prefer the crunch, chewy kind. Thanks in advance.

Well the best I have found isn't from a recipe book but a premade mix in the store. Martha White's brownie mix is very good. If I follow the directions for it I never have a problem with it. You just want to remember to check them a few minutes before they should be done. Stick a knife into them and if it's not gooey but just leaves some little marks on the knife then take them out. They are done. Brownies are one of those things that should not be cooked until the knife comes out clean. You do and they end up being over cooked.

Try this one, not sure if it is foolproof, but it is good!! 1/2 t baking powder, 1/2 t salt, 3 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted 1/2 c shortening, 2 beaten eggs, 2T sugar, 1/2 c flour, 1 t vanilla Combine all and eat vigorously til welll blended. Spread in greased 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cut in 2 inch squares. Or cook in microwave ro 8 -10 minutes or till puffed and dry on top. cut squares. Key is to watch it and check it about 25 minutes in. Better underdone that overdone. When it pulls a bit from side of the pan they are usually done too. If it sits to cool the outer part should crisp up a bit. Good luck!!
