Brownie Pan help

I need advice with the Brownie Pan... I have made brownies in this about a dozen tiems, and they always come out too hard on the outside. The first few tiems I followed recipe times, and they came out like rocks. Then I lowered the temp but kept at same time- still too hard. Then I increased the temp back to 350 and decreased time, these came out a little less hard... and I tried lowering time and heat and these came out like lave cake in the middle...

I love this pan and have been using it at my shows pretty much every demo...I have found that for a regular batch of brownies I lightly grease the pan and bake at 350 degrees for only 16 minutes....even when I put a reeces on top before baking I still only do 16 minutes at 350 degrees. Middle rack of oven is the key as well... When they set up and cool they are perfect everytime....hope this helps. I found the new cheese crumbler tool lifts them right out...

Awesome thank- all good information... Okay so when you grease the pan what are you using? I dont think I should use Pam... so what are my other options?

If you just need to grease- you could use Pam or if the recipe calls for flour too, Bakers Choice.

I would use vegetable or canola oil for baking. Don't want the flavor of olive oil unless making a savory recipe. I brush the sides and bottom using the chef's silicone basting brush. Neater than the kitchen spritzer. I find that Pam will cause the pan to get sticky after a few uses.

I also had trouble with my brownies coming out like little bricks. I decreased temp by 25 degrees and baked for less time (you have to keep an eye on them) then remove brownies to cooling rack immediately when done. I use coconut oil applied with the silicone brush for not only greasing the pan but also in the recipe. The coconut oil adds a nice flavor, you won't go back once you try it!

My regular brownies (using a regular mix) are in the oven now ... 15 minutes was way too short on time because they are complete liquid in the center so now I'm doing them for 20. I stirred in half a cup of extra chocolate chips.

I have this ultimate cookie brownie mix from Aldi ... anybody know the correct bake time for these?
