4 Levels of Brownies: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

How do you like your brownies? Gooey? Cakey? We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of the brownie. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which brownie was the best?
Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/bourbon-salted-caramel-brownie-recipe

  • I switched to using parchment paper, using butter in such large amounts just to grease pan is a waste. I now use the parchment paper and I am a level 1 baker and my brownies lift easily from the pan. Use a wooden spoon and not the fork to mix, and fold at the end with a spatula. Eggs should sit out on counter for a bit before you start, and not be cold from frig. I always use some white sugar and some brown, 2/3 white and 1/3 brown. I am still a level 1 baker, but I learned tips from watching TH-vision chefs.

  • One thing about pro chef is that They never laughs😶

  • Nope. All three brownies looked dry and overworked, with none of them having the intense chocolate flavor of a great brownie. If you use a mixer, you’re not making a brownie - You’re making a failed cake.

  • I tried the level 3 brownies and converted her ounces in cups and grams, her F to celcius, but my bater was more liquid when pouring the mixture in the pan and omg they are super sweet once baked. Are you sure we are supposed to add 16 oz sugar and this little flour (4 oz) ??
