  • Pour the batter into a lined baking pan. 
  • Tap the baking pan a couple of times to remove unwanted air bubbles from the batter.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the brownies are well baked.

Ensure to sift the dry ingredients to remove the tiny lumps.
Follow the metric measurements rather than the cup measurements for accuracy.
Just a big pinch of salt is enough to elevate the flavours. Do not add too much. 
Do not add all the milk in one go while combining the dry and wet ingredients. Add milk gradually and whisk until well combined. 
To test the doneness of brownies, insert a toothpick in the middle of the brownie and take it out. Brownies are done if the toothpick comes out clean with just a few crumbs. If the brownie batter sticks around the toothpick, then put the pan back in the oven and bake for a few more minutes.
Ensure not to overmix dry and wet ingredients, mix just until all the ingredients are combined.
