4 Foolproof Ways On How To Store Brownies
1. Don’t Cut
If you plan to store the brownies and not eat them right away, it is best of you won’t cut them. As you cut the brownies, they get more exposed to the air, which causes them to dry out more quickly. We sure want to keep the brownies chewy and moist instead of turning them crunchy and dry. The solution is to keep them in the tray and cut them only when ready to eat.
2. Keep them Airtight
One of the best ways to maintain the freshness while storing your brownies is by keeping them airtight. Air is one of the greatest enemies of brownies. With that said, you should place them in a plastic wrap with a Ziploc to prevent the dry air from coming in. Another option to jeep the brownies airtight is by wrapping them in a foil. You may also choose an airtight container for storage as the lids will entirely block out the air from circulating within the box. Cookie tins might not be as airtight as plastic containers or foils. Again, for quick storage, get a Ziploc bag as these are also convenient to open whenever you crave a snack. The focus point is to keep the air away from the delicious, tasty brownies. The tighter the brownies are secured, the better their storage will be.
3. Keep them Moist with a Bread Slice
The trick for storing brownies within a container is by adding a slice of bread to the top of the airtight jar. The moisture trapped within the bread slice will maintain the softness and chewiness of the brownies. The bread slice also serves the purpose of preserving the freshness of the brownies while they are packed airtight within the jar. If you notice that the piece of bread is starting to get dry, all you need to do is replace the slice with a fresh one. As crazy as it may sound, this trick will work wonders. Try it for yourself and find out.
4. Chose the Refrigerator for extra Storage
If you want to store the batch of brownies for a fortnight, it is best to place them in your fridge (while keeping them airtight). Remember that the refrigerator is a very fry place for storing items. Therefore, you must wrap the brownies in airtight plastic/ foil before placing them in the fridge.
Now you know how to store brownies, you will feel so happy when you enjoy a delicious cake as possible. If you know a few more ways, please share with everyone.
