What’s The Best Type of Pan For Baking Brownies?

  1. Light colored aluminum pans are my favorite for baking brownies.  They heat up quickly without overheating, and then cools down quickly once removed from the oven.
  2. Glass (such as Pyrex) and ceramic have poor heat conduction.  I’ve used plenty of my pyrex pans for baking brownies, but I try to stick to my lighter aluminum non-stick pans.
  3. Dark colored aluminum pans are a very common material.  It work just fine for baking brownies, but since dark colors absorb more heat than light colors, keep a close eye on your brownies to prevent over baking.
  4. Edge Brownie Pans have become very popular.  It’s the pan that gives you an edge brownie piece with every square.  It’s a light aluminum pan, so I’m a fan!  Find them at most Walmart and Target stores.  Amazon is also a great place to find them.

  • 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Fisher Pecan Halves

    To use a 9×13 pan, would you double the entire recipe? It seems like a lot of eggs if I doubled it. And a lot of chocolate chips. I am a pretty seasoned baker, but the doubling of this perplexes me! 🙂 What is your advice?
