Cakey brownie vs fudgy brownies
It’s the ever popular battle of the best brownie: cakey or fudgy.
Cakey brownies are a little lighter and airier. Exactly like their name describes, their texture is more like a cake. It might have more air pockets, softer texture, 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.
How to doctor brownie mix
There’s lots of fun ways to doctor box brownie mix. You can add things like coffee, chocolate chips, even pretzel pieces!
But for me, my goal was to figure out how I can quickly and easily doctor up some brownie mix and get me the best fudge brownie I’ve ever had. I know I needed to find something that could be added to the existing ingredients without throwing the whole thing out of whack!
I got the idea to try to add molasses from making Chewy Molasses Cookies.
The recipe said that the molasses help keep the cookies super moist and chewy. That’s when I had that ‘light bulb’ moment.
Maybe, if I add molasses to my brownie mix it will do the same thing to my brownies?
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.
Even though molasses is sugar, it’s deep caramel flavor doesn’t add much sweetness to the taste. Instead of making the brownies taste sweeter it’s enhancing the flavor of the chocolate making that taste deeper and 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.
