Brownie with Hazelnuts and Salted Butter Caramel

How do you get a real fudgy brownie?

The art of brownies is to get them so soft that they just melt in the mouth. For this, it is important not to overcook the brownie. When you take the brownie out of the oven, it often looks too undercooked, and there, the mistake we all make is to think: you have to put it back to bake for a few more minutes. No, the best thing to do at this point is to let it cool in the open air and then put it in the refrigerator if you like to eat it cold. It will harden and have the perfect texture. Be careful, however, to respect a minimum cooking time (about 25 minutes, max 30 minutes depending on your oven).

The other piece of advice I gave you is not to use baking powder. Indeed, the purpose of the brownie is not to be a fluffy cake and therefore it is not necessary to add baking powder as some recipes suggest.
