You watched the infomercial. You bought the Perfect Brownie Pan. And now you’ve lost the instructions. The nonstick 11- by 7-inch baking set is touted to bake, slice and serve 18 individual brownies. The baking set includes a baking pan, tray bottom, divider and serving stand, but it might not be clear how to use these parts. The included divider creates pre-sliced, uniformly sized brownies and the tray bottom acts as a serving tray that rests on top of the service stand. The idea is to bake and serve batch after batch of consistently delicious brownies.
Things You'll Need
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a baking pan or cookie sheet with foil. The cookie sheet will catch any brownie mix that overflows during baking and make cleanup easier.
Place the tray bottom into the baking pan and then place the Perfect Brownie Pan set in the oven and warm the set for 5 minutes.
Carefully remove the baking set from the oven. Spray the sides of the pan and tray bottom liberally with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour the brownie batter directly into the tray bottom and smooth it out.
Spray the divider liberally with nonstick cooking spray and insert it into the baking pan, pushing it through the brownie batter.
Place the entire baking set, still on top of the cookie sheet, back into the oven. Cook the brownies according to the length of time specified by the instructions for an 11- by 7-inch pan, usually around 25 minutes.
Remove the Perfect Brownie Pan set from the oven and let the brownies cool slightly for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Using a pot holder, remove the divider while the brownies are warm by pulling the divider straight up and out of the pan. Wait for the brownies and pan to cool completely.
Pick up the baking pan and push upward on the bottom center of the baking tray. The baking tray and brownies will detach from the baking pan, leaving you with a tray of brownies.
Make sure you put the Perfect Brownie Pan on top of a cookie or baking sheet because there is a small hole in the bottom tray that could cause a small amount of brownie mix to leak into your oven.
When spraying the pan with nonstick cooking spray, spray liberally and make sure you cover all surfaces that could come in contact with the brownie mix.
