Well this was fun! I made Texas shaped brownies with our large, Texas Silicone mold last night and, well, the kids have already eaten them all. I guess that’s the highest compliment a mother can get when it comes to cooking. Typically I use my Texas molds more for soap making and ice cubes, I just don’t bake very often, so it was fun being a Stampola customer again, using our own product to make something fun for the family.
Tips on baking brownies with our Texas Silicone Mold:
Gooey brownie mix is not ideal
- Fudge brownie mixes tend to be on the gooey side, which is not good for pulling out of a semi-soft baking mold, like silicone. Pick a mix that seems more for a dryer style of brownie and not a gooey one.
- Coat the pan with coconut or a similar oil
- You’ll want to give the pan a light coat of coconut or similar oil to keep the brownie from sticking to it. It will make removing it from the tray so much easier.
Wait until the brownies are cool before removing
I started to remove one while they were still a little warm and the brownie began to bust up so I stopped. I actually put mine in the refrigerator for a short while to bring down the temperature to make removing them easier.
Use a butter knife to help remove the brownie from the mold
Or something similar that does not have serrated edges. The mold is flexible so with one hand you gently pull back the side(s) of the molds as you go around the inside edges of the mold helping ease the brownie out onto the plate.
Enjoy with icing, or not
We iced ours!
This was a fun baking experience and the first time I have used one of our molds to make brownies. Next time I’m going to use one of our small Texas molds. My main advice is go slow on removing from the tray and do so when the brownies are not warm. And kids seem to prefer icing versus no icing, so there’s that!
