Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your dish at the lower end of the suggested baking time.
Do not over-bake the brownies to ensure they are yummy and fudgy.
It is essential that the brownies are completely cooled before slicing. Brownies will crumble if they are too warm when cut.
