A chocolate brownie or simply a brownie is a square or rectangular chocolate-baked confection. Brownies come in a variety of forms and may be either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density. Brownies often, but not always, have glossy “skin” on their upper crust.

Brownie textures fall into three general camps
Cakey brownies, like the name implies, are light, moist and airy, with a slightly fluffy, cake-like interior. Fudgy brownies are moist, dense, and gooey, with almost the texture of fudge, but not quite as compact.
Fudgy brownies have a higher fat-to-flour ratio than cakey ones. So add more fat, in this case, butter and chocolate. A cakey batch has more flour and relies on baking powder for leavening. The amount of sugar and eggs does not change whether you’re going fudgy or cakey
