Cake vs Fudgy Brownies
It’s the battle of the brownies. Typically they fall into two categories: cakey and fudgy.
Cakey brownies are a little lighter and airier. Their texture is more like a cake, it might have more air pockets and it’s more crumbly. Fudge brownies are dense, rich, and moist. There’s a decadence to them that you don’t get in a cake brownie. If you’re here reading this recipe I’m going to assume you’re team fudge brownie like me!
I’ve always been 100% all-in on the fudgy side. Don’t ever put a cakey brownie in front of me. I won’t have it. I’m all about the rich, dense, moist fudgy brownie.
For what seems like forever, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect fudgy brownie. I’ve tried it all. Adding more butter, more oil, adding melted chocolate, adding chocolate morsels, adding coffee. These all resulted in good brownies, but never exactly what I’m looking for. I wanted that moist, chewy, fudgy to the max. Once I added the molasses and tried that, I knew I found the winning ingredient.

Molasses in Brownies
Molasses is an incredible ingredient to add to a baking recipe, especially one that’s chocolate. By adding molasses you’re adding extra moisture with will make the baked goodie chewy and moist.
And here’s the best part. It does all this without making the brownie taste any sweeter or sugary. Even though molasses is sugar, it’s deep caramel flavor doesn’t add any sweetness to the taste. Instead of making the brownies taste sweeter it’s enhancing the flavor of the chocolate making that taste richer.
That’s the beauty of what molasses can do in brownies! First, it gives you that consistency you’re searching for, that super fudge moist brownie. Second, it gives the chocolate in the brownie mix an extra richness. So what you create is an over the top chocolate richness, extra fudgy consistency, and a boxed brownie that is unlike any you’ve had before.
