I've been thinking about getting one of these pans for a while. I resisted, thinking I don't NEED another baking accessory. I have plenty of adequate pans to bake brownies in. But I'm one of those people who absolutely love the crusty, chewy brownie corners fresh from the oven.
So when I saw that this pan was available on Think Geek for Geek Points (and I had enough points saved up!) I had to get it.
I waited patiently for its arrival. I occupied my time thinking about what goodies (besides brownies) to bake in this pan.
And then the pan arrived! The pan is much sturdier than I expected, and came with a small spatula.
Here's my first brownie attempt:
I actually overbaked them a bit. The directions that came with the pan say that baking time doesn't need to be adjusted for this pan. But doesn't that depend on the recipe yield? Not all brownie recipes yield the same amount of brownie.
But I wasn't disappointed. The brownies came out delicious. And every brownie had a chewy, crusty edge on it.
Brownie-making tip: Add a packet of instant Starbucks Via to the brownie batter. Coffee always enhances the flavor of chocolate, and the Via packets make it super easy to do just that.
Now what to make in the edge pan next...
