When you think of brownies, whether homemade or from The Pastry Artisan, you know you’re in for a special treat. These delicious chocolate pieces are a crowd favorite, but keep in mind that not all brownies are born equal. The Pastry Artisan believes that there are three types of brownies: fudgy, chewy, and cakey, and that each helps bring something distinctive to the table. This is what defines them and what you can experience from each type of brownie. So wondering what sets Fudgy, Chewy, and Cakey Brownies apart? Continue reading to find out.
When it comes to picking between fudgy, chewy, and cakey brownies, we want to highlight that one is not superior to the other. Each variety has its favorable circumstances, and it all comes down to personal taste and which one is best for you. The best part is that it’s all right here at The Pastry Artisan.
The texture and flavoring that we use distinguish these brownie varieties. The texture can be dense, gooey, and passionately chocolatey, or tall, airy, and structured. These variations are eventually caused by the recipe’s fat-to-flour ratio.
Brownies with Fudgy Filling
If you’re a serious chocolate fan, these brownies should be at the top of your list. These sweet squares pack a lot of fat (in the form of butter and chocolate) and less flour than other varieties. Expect a passionately rich chocolate flavor and a dense, super-moist, often gooey texture reminiscent of a truffle. Original fudgy brownies are typically made with melted butter and either bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate (or a combination of the two), as well as cocoa powder. In addition to whole eggs, fudgy brownie recipes may call for an extra egg yolk.
Brownies with a Chew
Chewy brownies are the tried-and-true classics that fall somewhere around fudgy and cakey counterparts. These pieces have an intense chocolate flavor, are well-structured and chewy from around edges, and have a delicate, moist, and mildly gooey center (although not quite as dense as a fudge brownie). Chewy brownie recipes use more flour than fudgy brownie recipes, giving rise to a more defined, chewy bite and a less thick texture.
Cakey brownies, as the name suggests, may remind you of a good slice of chocolate cake. Cakey brownies are the thickest of the 3 and have a lightweight, airier texture due to a lower fat content, more flour, and the extension of baking powder for the yeast.
