It’s no secret that many people love brownies. They have a wonderful texture and a deep flavor. They always seem to stick to your pan no matter how careful you are.
Here are some strategies for creating brownies that won’t stick to the pan. The use of butter or frying spray to oil the pan before adding the batter is a common technique.
You can also try mixing in some flour and cocoa powder into the dough before baking. Finally, you may put parchment paper and otherwise silicone baking sheets on the pans to make cleanup even easier
Why brownies stick to the pan?
It’s possible that you could have avoided disaster if you’d oiled or lined the entire baking dish. It’s also possible that you baked the brownies in the wrong size or shape pan.
If you take brownies out of the oven too soon, they will continue to bake. Since you can’t start slicing until the pan has cooled for at least 10 minutes after taking it out of the oven, this is a no-go.
Most likely, the interior of these brownies has not yet set because it has been a while since they were baked. Let the brownies cool for at least thirty minutes before cutting into them to ensure that the flavors have had a chance to emerge and the brownies have settled.
Tips for preventing brownies from sticking to the pan
- Always choose a right pan type and size for baking your brownies
- You can go for disposable foil pans, glass pans, Non-stick pans, metal pans, etc
How to safely remove brownies from pan so that they don’t stick?
1. Heat your pan
Even after greasing & baking in the proper brownie pan, if your first brownie is sticking, you shouldn’t panic. Nonetheless, it is still difficult to transfer the first brownie square to a plate.
Start by setting the pan of brownies over a low flame on the stove. Once the oil or shortening dissolves from the heat, the brownie can be removed from the pan.

2. Use foil method
Aluminum foil or you can choose pan liners which are great options for keeping your brownies from breaking apart during removal. Be sure the foil completely covers the dish and hangs over the edges by at least two inches.
Butter or spray the pan and then add the dough. Use the recipe’s recommended method of pouring the batter into your pan and baking. Wait about 10 minutes for the brownies to cool after taking them out of the oven.
After that, while still warm, carefully remove the whole brownie cake from the pan while holding on to the foil. Once the brownie cake had cooled for an additional 20 minutes, remove the foil and cut it into squares.
3. Use parchment paper
Using parchment paper to line my pans makes it easy to take the brownies out of the pan. The brownie cake should be easily removed from the pan, so make sure your paper is big enough to cover the sides and drape over the edges.
Following this, butter the inside and outside of the pan and line it with parchment paper. Remove any extra flour by shaking it before adding another spoonful.
When lining a pan with parchment paper, be sure to get into all of the crevices. After pouring the batter onto the pan, make sure to spread it out evenly.
Don’t stress anymore over your brownies sticking to the pan, use the above-mentioned methods and easily take out your brownies from the pan without breaking and crumbling them.
