Turn the heat down to low. - Crack the eggs into a bowl, making sure no pieces of the shell get into the brownies mix. Add in the eggs now, make sure you are stirring quickly. This helps make sure the eggs do not scramble. #important
Then add in the vanilla, brown sugar, coffee, salt, honey and mix well. I suggest mixing each ingredient into the batter one by one. Does make a difference.
Next, pastry flour. Be sure to sift the flour before adding it to the brownie mix. This helps make sure you do not get any lumps in the brownie mix.Mix the flour into the batter in "3rds". Another way to help reduce any lumps from getting into the brownie mix. I used a 9-inch springform pan. Line it with parchment paper and spray with cooking oil to help reduce sticking.Pour the brownie mix into the springform pan and pat the mix with a spatula to remove air bubbles. Then place the springform pan onto a cookie sheet. Helps make sure your oven stays clean.
