Why did my brownies go wrong?

When you beat the eggs and butter you incorporate air into them, and the flour stabilizes the air bubbles. But if too much air is in the mixture for the amount of flour, the brownies “over-expand” as they bake, but collapse, or cave in, as they cool and the unstable air bubbles deflate.

Can you eat brownies out of date?

Brownies don’t last forever, but they also (usually) don’t go off in a way veggies or dairy do. That means they probably won’t get moldy or rotten. If it changes noticeably, discard the brownies. There’s no point in eating subpar brownies.

What happens if you take brownies out too early?

Don’t cut into the brownies until 30 minutes after you’ve taken them out of the oven. If you cut them too soon, you might think they’re underdone when they just haven’t set yet.
